We recognise that the public service landscape has changed fundamentally in recent years. Financial challenges and rising residents’ expectations mean that traditional delivery models are no longer viable. So we’re reimagining our organisation for the world we’re in. We’re creating a more agile and responsive council, with a sharper commercial focus, greater flexibility to innovate, and more autonomy for professionals.

It won’t happen overnight, but the next 2-3 years will see us move to a ‘Commissioning Hub’ model, equipping us with the right structure and data to make informed and sustainable decisions on the best way to secure positive outcomes for our residents. In turn, this creates opportunities for people who want to be at the forefront of this change, and who are excited by the prospect of doing things differently.

Reporting to the Executive Director Strategic Commissioning, this absorbing and varied role covers a portfolio spanning Health, Housing and Social Care, and offers an ideal opportunity to bring a strategic perspective to the different factors that influence health and wellbeing in the borough. The council’s shift to a new way of working, developing a clearer distinction between delivery and commissioning activity, has already been established in many parts of the service. We want you to build on this success, promoting effective ideas and proven best practice with Commissioning Leaders in key areas.
