Job role:

An opportunity has arisen to develop your professional and management career within a creative and exciting organisation as the Service Manager for WDP’s Brent Service

WDP has been providing drug and alcohol services in the London Borough of Brent since 2006 and has just been awarded the new integrated community substance misuse and wellbeing service as lead provider working in partnership with Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust. This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and ambitious leader who thrives on achieving results. You will lead a recovery-focused, integrated service for drug and alcohol users.  As a strong leader you will be delivering on WDP’s strategic and business plans for the borough.

We are seeking to appoint an individual who can also bring WDP’s core values to the role:

1.           Entrepreneurial – you will be driven to facilitate WDP’s expansion and bring innovative ideas to help achieve this.

2.           In partnership – you will be a team player and liaise effectively with other WDP staff and partner organisations

3.           Strong belief in Service Users – you will be ambitious for those we help and this will come across strongly in your written work

4.           Community focussed – you will help design services that serve the whole community

You will use your drive and innovation to ensure quality care, good practice, high performance and excellence in all areas of the service.  You will be able to demonstrate a track record of leadership, exceptional performance management, partnership development, and a flair for bringing staff and service users together to deliver recovery outcomes for service users throughout Brent.  In this important role, you will take the lead in developing a broad range of recovery-orientated, high-quality services to ensure they meet our service users’ needs and commissioner requirements.  Managing and leading the service against CQC standards is essential for this role.

There will be a requirement to travel between designated service hubs and satellites across the borough.

WDP is a recovery focused organisation. Our staff and volunteers are committed to helping our service users to improve their health and wellbeing, and to become free from dependency.
