Head of Commissioning and Market Development (Adults)
Kirklees is firmly focused on the future. Our vision is to create a district with a strong, sustainable economy that offers a great quality of life to its residents - leading to thriving communities, growing businesses, high prosperity and low inequality, and where people enjoy better health throughout their lives.
We are therefore looking for talented, experienced professionals to join our senior leadership team and help deliver our ambitions.
Our Head of Commissioning and Market Development is a new post, leading our approach to commissioning within adult services and working closely with our NHS partners (as part of our integration journey) and a range of providers in the district.
You will support our move towards a more outcome based approach, focusing on developing the care market and empowering service users.
Candidates will need strong commissioning and procurement experience within a care setting, as well as the skills to modernise the service and forge outstanding relationships with providers and service users.
This is the start of an exciting journey for Kirklees. If you want to find out more please see: www.kirkleesleadership.com or contact our advising consultants Luke Judd (0113 205 6077) or Gary Evans (0113 205 6080).
