To manage and take responsibility for advocacy services contracted to local authorities in South Gloucestershire, BaNES and parts of Bristol.
As Area Manager you will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of advocacy service contracts which work with vulnerable adults. Advocacy disciplines include IMHA, IMCA, Care Act and IHCA.

You will be responsible for a team of approximately 16 with direct line management responsibility for 3 or 4 Team Leaders.
