Penderels Trust is the market leader in the provision of independent living services for disabled people, perhaps better known as Care in the Community. Penderels Trust was established in 1988 as part of an initiative by Coventry City Council and the (then) Coventry and District Spastics Society, to provide innovative ways of enabling disabled people to live in the community in Coventry.
In the intervening period, understandably, a great deal has changed mostly driven by new legislation, customer demand and, more recently, the need to be cost efficient. Today we deliver a range of services that enable disabled people to live independent lives with support tailored to their needs. Our core services are HR support and advice and payroll services. For individuals who may be vulnerable or less able we also provide managed accounts and appointeeship services together with many other complimentary services.
The company currently employs in the region of 180 staff. Services are delivered in nearly one third of all the local authority and NHS areas in England and Wales, and we provide support to some 14,000 customers per year.
With an income approaching £5m the company has had a successful year and has experienced a total growth in income of some 20% since 2014. But we never rest on our laurels. There is still a great deal to do to make sure we stay ahead of the game.
We will, of course, be looking for an in-depth knowledge of management and leadership skills and experience, finance, planning and human resources management, together with an eye for innovation and risk management.
You will be working with a long serving, experienced staff team many of whom have worked for the Trust in excess of 15 years. You will continue to build on the excellent service we already deliver, bringing a new perspective and innovative ideas to continue our growth.
You will need excellent communication skills and an ability to convince staff, in addition to the board, that you are up to the job.
