Our customer focus, innovation and commercial thinking has helped us to be a high performing and sustainable Organisation.

As Service Director, you will provide strategic and operational leadership across adult social care and health.

Building upon our excellent reputation we are looking for someone who not only has a sound knowledge of adult social care but also has the drive and enthusiasm to keep developing creative solutions to some of the wicked problems we all face.

We are proud of our desire to do things differently, think creatively and deliver services with a fresh approach.
