This is an exciting opportunity to work with us to commission care and support services for adults with complex needs in Camden, particularly for autistic adults and their networks, through our local care strategy and adult social care transformation plan. At the heart of these plans is the development of a person-centred care approach that builds on people’s strengths and maximises their independence, but which also emphasises prevention, early intervention, community awareness and service accessibility, and high quality, affordable support to those people who are most vulnerable.

Our Adults’ Commissioning Team is seeking to appoint an additional Commissioning Managers (18 months fixed term) to strengthen the team and provide additional capacity.  The role will have a particular view to developing a model and business case for a pathway of support for autistic adults who are not eligible for support from Camden’s learning disabilities services, and scoping a multi-agency training and awareness raising plan across children’s and adults’ services, in order to make Camden a place where this cohort can thrive and succeed in line with the Camden 2025 vision.

The Commissioning Manager will join a commissioning team that works in partnership with key stakeholders including Camden CCG, community health services and the voluntary and community sector. We want you to play an active role in supporting our high performing, creative and flexible teams to engage with Camden’s autistic community, further our autism strategy and Autism Partnership Board, and complement diagnostic services being commissioned by health partners, to meet the enormous opportunities and challenges which lie ahead.

This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and will require an Enhanced DBS.

We are looking for an ambitious person who is a great communicator and someone who understands how to analyse and translate needs into programmes of change and delivery, including developing and implementing pilot projects. You will be innovative in your approach and appreciate the importance of collaboration, stakeholder engagement and co-production in the development of solutions. If you want to join Camden, have a pro-active attitude and can demonstrate an ability to get things done, then we want to hear from you.

In this role you will need to be educated to degree level or equivalent, holding a professional qualification in health or social care relating to autism would be desirable
