Bracknell Forest Council

The Learning Disabilities Team is committed to modernising the way that people with a learning disability and their families are supported, a major part of that support is delivered through the Carer Support Services (Waymead Short Term Care, Bracknell Day Service and Well-Being & Leisure Team). As a part of the modernisation we are developing new ways to deliver these services for people who have been supported by ‘traditional’ services in the past.   Ideally you will have had some experience of working with people but will not be entrenched in traditional delivery of services and will be creative in your thinking.

The role of the Assistant Unit Manager is not only to support the Provider Services Manager in the day to day running of the services, including a CQC registered respite service, but to be creative in what we can, as a service, deliver.

The service operates seven days a week and you will be required to work shifts to meet the needs of the service, which includes evenings, weekends, and on-call rotas.
