Full time

We have a fantastic opportunity for a current or aspiring Director to lead our adults and community services.

The last two years have seen significant change in our approach to adults’ social care and we’ve been working to implement a strengths based approach to assessment that will enable people to stay independent for longer.

As Director for Adults and Communities you will be working to continue the cultural change that has started and embed new ways of working. You won’t be doing this in isolation and you will need to work closely with colleagues across the organisation and with partners. Fundamentally you will need to be someone who embodies our values and can inspire people to higher levels of performance and collectively meet the challenges of delivering 21st century health and social care.

You should have a strong background in delivering continuous improvement through people. You will also have a good understanding of the statutory responsibilities of the role and a proven track record of controlling budgets in demand led and commissioned services.

To obtain the candidate brief or to arrange an informal discussion with the Chief Executive please contact Kelly Hughes on 01432 383788 or
