Set up by a former foster parent and former social worker in 1994, Foster Care Associates (FCA) is an established fostering agency which forms part of the Polaris Community - one of the UK’s largest leading communities of children’s service providers.
Today, we’re one of the country’s largest and most experienced independent fostering agencies. But just because we’re large doesn’t mean we’re impersonal. At FCA we’re one big family, and we’re committed to supporting every single child and foster parent, every single minute of the day.
We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Registered Manager to join our wonderful and friendly team.
As Registered Manager you will be accountable for the operational, regulatory and financial performance of the region and you will develop and maintain effective relationships with carers, local authorities and other relevant agencies.
You should set exemplary standards of behaviour and performance, promoting the vision and values of Foster Care Associates, and work collaboratively with respect and integrity. You will also ensure the region is “inspection ready” at all times and can achieve the highest possible outcome from inspection. You will have a full driving licence and be confident travelling regularly across Thames Valley and surrounding areas.
At FCA we believe that by working together we can achieve fantastic outcomes for children and young people as can be evidenced by our placement stability, outcomes for children and inspection results.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a highly supportive environment and to continue to build on an already highly performing fostering service which continues to develop and grow.
