‘Do you want a career which enables you to work with a range of people to shape, design and manage commissioned services able to enrich the lives of adults?’

An opportunity to join our Adult Social Care Commissioning Team as a Senior Commissioner for Early Intervention Services is now available for someone who is dynamic, flexible, and fully invested in delivering the best outcomes possible for our diverse populations and communities.

We are looking for forward thinking, enthusiastic candidates able to:

• Innovate and drive continued transformation of services through collaboration and partnership working, with the needs of service users always at the heart of everything we do.
• Contribute positively to the work we do and the environment we’ve created. A can-do attitude and flexible approach and ability to deliver in a multi-agency environment goes a long way.
• Demonstrate confidence in managing and influencing service direction across a range of stakeholder groups and organisations
• Manage the financial side of things in driving value for money through the delivery and management of robust commercial models within the market
• Embrace innovation and work with services creatively to improve outcomes
• Demonstrate experience and confidence in line management of a high performing team

Appointment to this post will be subject to the outcome of an Enhanced Disclosure obtained through the Disclosure and Barring Service. The Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

So why join us? Here are just a few of the things our current team have to say about working within our team.

“One of the things that I find attractive here is the commitment to doing an outstanding job and ‘doing it right’”

“One of the elements I like most is that it is a fairly new commissioning directorate with real appetite for innovation and considered risk taking to meet the growing and evolving needs of people and communities.”

In every aspect of both councils, we promote a culture in which our people feel continually supported in their work, in their lives and in pursuing their ambitions. We also believe in empowering our people to make big decisions which have a positive impact. We value our staff and prioritise their wellbeing, demonstrated through our generous benefits package:

• Generous annual leave entitlement with the option to purchase additional days
• Promotion of home working and prioritisation of work life balance through the use of a flexible working policy.
• Excellent pension scheme
• You will be supplied with a laptop and smartphone as well as gaining free access to Tri-x, Research in Practice and CC-inform.
• A range of training and development opportunities which are tailored to your needs and will enable career progression.
• Employee Benefits scheme with lifestyle and shopping discounts.

We have invested in new ways of remote working and anticipate this will be the new norm, with limited expectation of office-based working in the future. Our excellent technology platform and infra-structure support all our staff to connect and collaborate remotely, we do therefore expect all staff to have effective broadband connectivity.

For an informal discussion regarding the role, please contact Shauna Torrance, Head of Commissioning Adult Social Care on: 07887631808

Interviews will take place when contacted.
