Liverpool is enjoying a dynamic and exciting period in its history. It has been substantially transformed within just a few short years to become a vibrant and successful city. The leadership of the council through Mayor Joanne Anderson and the Cabinet are determined to transform our services, underpinned by the Triple Lock commitment to social value, environmental sustainability and equality and inclusion at the core of all our decision making and policies, building an economy that serves the interests of the many, not the few.

  • Develop and lead collaborative working partnerships with a range of external partners, delivering across organisational and local authority boundaries to secure City Plan outcomes and impact for every community.

What you'll need:

  • A comprehensive understanding of local government and health integration together with the devolution of powers to local and city region level, the national and political context within which it operates and the current challenges and opportunities it presents.
  • Educated to degree level or equivalent experience. 
  • Substantial senior management experience of social and health care services working corporately and with health partners in a large and complex public sector organisation, together with a deep and demonstrable understanding of working in a demanding urban context.

  • A successful track record of achievement including managing challenging change initiatives and exploiting new opportunities.
  • Experience of leading and motivating significant numbers of staff in a demanding environment and demonstrating a successful track record of promoting equality and inclusion throughout a big organisation.
  • Demonstrable record of managing large, complex budgets involving a range of funding streams.
  • Evidence of success in delivering or facilitating major projects within tight budget constraints and with limited resources.
  • Proven track record of effective programme and project management including evidence of delivering large scale projects achieving major savings and service transformation.
  • Operational and strategic management experience of delivering high quality services in a multi-agency context. This includes direct service provision, commissioning and through partnering.
  • Detailed knowledge of relevant legislation and regulatory frameworks for services within the children’s and Adults social care agenda, Public Health and the CCG.
