This post is for a Broker within the Adult’s Brokerage Team and is fixed term of up to 3 years (initially one year). There are 3 strategic teams within the Integrated Commissioning Division. This post forms part of the Brokerage Team. This team is split into three, one covering adult social care, one covering children’s placements and the third are responsible for providing support to Direct Payments recipients.

• Sourcing and arranging high quality placements and care packages

• Negotiating cost breakdowns and ensuring value for money

• Identify and suggest alternative more cost-effective services.

• Maximise the use of inhouse provision and frameworks.

• To gather and analyse information from a range of services to support the quality assurance processes and commissioning activities.
