About Us

Providing support to highly complex individuals is what we do best. At LDC Care Co we understand that providing the best person-centred support provides the best opportunities for achieving life goals and personal milestones, and this has been a part of our ethos for the last 24 years.

Everything we do centres around our 4 Core Values – Commitment, Accountability, Respect and Excellence. They are the foundations that everything else is built on and have been critical in us becoming the company we are – providing specialist care and support in more than 60 residential care homes and supported living settings across Kent.

With multiple CQC ratings of ‘Outstanding’ we are proud of our ability to provide high quality care to individuals who have struggled to maintain other mainstream placements or have spent time within

secure settings, and reintegrate them back into the wider community to pursue social, personal, or vocational development opportunities.

About The Role

As we’ve expanded and grown, we’ve identified the need for dedicated, experienced Deputy Managers.

You’ll be supporting the Registered Managers oversee their allocated services and working closely alongside the Support Teams to provide care and support to our service users, setting exemplary standards of care and helping to drive our Core Values – Commitment, Accountability, Respect and Excellence.

To help achieve this, you’ll be at the heart of the operation, drafting rosters, maintaining and monitoring paperwork ready for audit and playing a key role in the review and drafting of support plans, risk assessments and other key service user documents.

You’ll also be assisting in the line management of Support Workers and other team members who provide care to supported individuals, including conducting supervisions, return to works, and light investigatory duties

The Person

Ideally, you’ll already be qualified to the QCF Level 3 in Health & Social Care as a minimum, with a possibility or ability to work towards the Level 5 and have high levels of experience working within the care sector, preferably within Learning Disabilities, Mental Health, and Challenging Behaviour.

You’ll need to be a confident communicator, able to lead and motivate your team and show flexibility and creativity in the way you approach things. Every one of our Service Users is Unique, and we aim to make every day Special. It’s our company motto, and something we all believe in.

If your background is within complex care, and you’re looking to either begin or develop their management career within the care sector, then we’d love to hear from you.
