Full time

Leeds wants to be the UK’s best city. Everything we do is focused on achieving this. Across the city this means working with all partners - pooling resources and combining efforts to address the issues that hold back progress towards this goal.

Our new Deputy Director of Integrated commissioning will take a leading role across the city with our partners.

With three provider trusts in health, three clinical commissioning groups, the NHS headquartered here and numerous alternative providers as well as a council in-house service, the partnership and integration agenda is complicated, sizeable and absolutely critical.

This is a new role and reflects the increasing collaboration between health and social care, and the postholder will need to be a clear, credible, intelligent and respected voice at the table.

Initially covering all adult social care commissioning functions and integrated commissioning for learning disabilities, mental health and dementia, as well as elements of public health, this post signals the beginning of a more integrated approach.

We are therefore looking for exceptional candidates who bring in depth knowledge of adult social care and health integrated commissioning, with the ability to lead and manage a large agenda, shaping strategy, influencing partners and ensuring delivery for the people we support.

To be successful in this role you will need strong influencing capabilities, as well as the drive and passion to enable practitioner and clinical leadership and improve outcomes for the population - whilst also realising value for money as a commissioner.

For more information please see or talk to our advising consultants Luke Judd (0113 205 6077) or Sheena Haigh (0113 205 6292).

Closing date: 5 May 2017.
