A Message from our CEO Steph Bolshaw

Thank you for showing an interest in joining Positive Steps at this exciting time as we galvanise our “new normal’ ways of working and build upon a strategic programme started in late 2019 to embrace efficiency and effectiveness and to grow our business model. The programme was made up of three key strands:

  • A modern ‘fit for purpose’ delivery centre
  • An empowered and agile workforce
  • Effective systems and processes that embrace innovation, technology, and change

As you will appreciate the programme has been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic but despite the significant challenges that threw at us we have remained on course and continued to deliver.

The first strand was completed during lockdown and our refurbished head office and client delivery centre at Medtia Place, Oldham was re-opened to clients in mid-July 2020.

All our frontline staff now have ICT equipment that enables them to work in an agile way and ensured they could continue delivering our vital services for vulnerable people in a variety of ways throughout the various pandemic restrictions. As we are now living and work alongside Covid-19 we have adopted a blended approach of home/office/locality working and are now focussing on establishing locality delivery spaces to complete this strand of work.

It has been challenging to implement our third strand, but good progress has been made and the improvements have been welcomed whilst releasing some efficiency savings.

I am extremely proud of the Positive Steps Team (Trustee’s, Management, Staff and Volunteers) that have achieved so much during these unprecedented times, but we recognise the need to strengthen our resources in some key areas of the business to help us complete and sustain the programme.

If you would like to be part of our exciting journey, then please take the first step and submit your application.
