Do you want to help make a difference to services for vulnerable adults?
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
Working to the Head of Transformation, you will be part of a small team dedicated to the delivery of a major transformation of adult social care services. Working closely with operational teams, you will be responsible for improving the customer experience and building operational resilience. You will apply a variety of proven project management and change methodologies, and ensure that change is sustainably embedded by supporting teams to identify and source appropriate learning and development interventions. You will work with stakeholders across adult social care to co-produce service improvement initiatives with staff and service users, to redesign systems and processes that help us deliver our strategic goals, and to ensure that quality is at the heart of all we do.
This is a unique opportunity to change, influence and transform the service, helping to build solid foundations and to shape its future direction.
The ideal candidate will have experience of change management in a similarly complex organisation, with the proven ability to positively engage service users and staff with large-scale change programmes. Excellent project and programme management skills are a must, alongside experience of a variety of different process improvement methodologies. An understanding of adult social car would be helpful, but a positive attitude, willingness to learn and the ability to use your skills and experience of change and project management are more important.
The right candidate will also be able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal and influencing skills; with emotional intelligence and the ability to build trust, alongside the confidence to robustly challenge the status quo and to overcome resistance to change. Self-motivation, and an ability to identify and encourage innovative solutions and build a “can-do” culture within the team and across the service will also be essential to success in this role
