Scottish Autism is an organisation dedicated to enabling autistic people to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. A key expectation of everyone who works for Scottish Autism is that they live and breathe our values; Collaboration, Change Makers, Compassion and Contribution.

Our values come into play throughout everything we do at work – how we work together, and how we deliver services to the people we support and to the people we work alongside. An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and committed Services Manager to work in our South West Area Service who shares and demonstrates our values.


In keeping with our new way of working, a coaching model promoting and developing the autonomy of our teams, the key outcome for this role is to manage the Service to the highest quality. The successful candidate will manage the financial and budgetary targets involved in the provision of these services and participate in the planning, update, and review of these budgets.


With strong leadership, coaching and mentoring skills, you will provide and maintain a quality service, where the focus will be on developing skills, strategies of intervention and maximising independence for those we support and the autonomy of the teams you oversee. You will have demonstrable experience of liaising with multi-disciplinary teams, developing and auditing various care and/or support plans, risk management, people management, and developing close links in the local community, promoting the service and the organisation.


What we offer you:

The opportunity to work with our existing team, supporting individuals to live an active and fulfilled life. Wellbeing is priority in relation to our staff, and we strive to ensure all colleagues feel valued and supported at work.

We provide an excellent benefits package which includes a competitive salary, generous annual leave entitlement, specialist training, personalised learning pathway for all, pension scheme, discount platform and our fantastic Employee Assistance Programme.


Suitable candidates will have a relevant experience and qualification as set by the SSSC such as SVQ level 4 in Health/Social Care and the Leadership in Management and Care Award; coupled with experience in a management role.
