Management Roles within Adult Social Care

Team Leader

Team leaders are the eyes and ears of the manager. Within this role you will be involved in organising daily care plans and ensuring care is carried out to the highest standard. You will span across managers and support workers, covering each role as required. The team leaders give advice and guidance to the support workers and assist them in any way they can.


A wide and varied role, the manager works closely with the team leaders to ensure the care, safety and welfare of staff and service users is considered at all times. The manager is also responsible for the running of the day service transport, as well as, the assessment and review of service users.

‚ÄčThe role of a Registered Manager, working alongside a team of care workers, ensures that services within health and social care provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and support. Individuals require strong organisational and leadership skills, good project management, the ability to think strategically to develop the service as well as the ability to motivate others.
