A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Integrated Governance Manager to join a community-based mental health support service in Salford, where the team provides talking therapies and wellbeing assistance to local people who are experiencing common mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, and more.

The team is dedicated to providing comprehensive, recovery-oriented psychological care that is accessible and constructive for all. Services are provided in a range of ways to best suit individual needs – including 1-to-1 and group sessions, online and face-to-face – to give each person a safe space to talk through their concerns and leave better equipped to move forward.

As Senior Integrated Governance Manager, you will play the lead role in realising clinical compliance, effectiveness and service improvement; you will have the freedom to create and manage improvement initiatives, policies, risk assessments, compliance activities, and development frameworks that ensure professional clinical standards are maintained and continuously evolve, with the possibility of facilitating CQC registration in the future. You will also be a director on the board and participate in the strategic direction of the organisation.

This is a permanent role for a Senior Integrated Governance Manager, working ideally 30h or 37.5h per week (negotiable), 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri.

  • You must have significant corporate, clinical governance, and managerial experience.
  • You must have experience in developing and implementing new clinical governance / quality improvement frameworks.

  • You must have outstanding interpersonal skills - including being able to comfortably lead and engage teams without supervision, to be flexible in your approach, and to collaborate successfully with other professionals to deliver solutions.
  • You must be able to drive or reliably commute – this role will involve travel between different bases within the local area.
  • It is desirable that you have experience of working at board level.

  • Free on-site parking
  • Mileage subsidies
  • Generous company pension scheme
  • 27 days’ annual leave + bank holidays
