Advocacy through performance, communication that works

Team Leader

More Than Words Advocacy CIC is a unique, not for profit organisation that provides creative support services and day opportunities to people with learning disabilities. We use dramatherapy techniques and accessible sports/activities to support and develop the whole person.

We are an exceptional organisation with a talented and professional staff team who work together to offer an environment where aspirations are achievable and everyone has a true sense of belonging. We are seeking to employ a dynamic Team Leader to provide leadership to a small staff team and ensure the smooth running of services. The ideal candidate will have previous experience of working either in a local authority or residential/nursing home setting, and of managing rotas.

If you are experienced, organised, passionate about offering the best support and understand the value of our service, we would like to hear from you.

Normal hours of work are Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm. The ideal candidate will need to appreciate that although our services operate during these times, some of our performances and events occur in the evenings and at weekends. The post carries the expectation that the Team Leader will be required to support out-of-hours activities in both a paid and voluntary capacity, as required.
