With a team of circa 60 staff working across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, Shine provides services to people whose lives are affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, or associated conditions.

Shine is seeking an exceptional candidate to join our Senior Management Team, to lead and develop the services we offer, to give people a greater voice, and to enable access to information, advice and support to enhance their health, well-being and successes in life.  

As Director of Services, you will lead a team of Service Managers, who have responsibility for developing and delivering services in their regions or in areas of work.
