If you think you know Stoke-on-Trent then think again. The city is undergoing a transformation. Just 90 minutes from London, the UK’s 13th largest city region has embarked on a journey with job creation and regeneration at its core with ambition to grow the local economy by 50% by 2043, moving from key city to core city status.

The award of Enterprise Zone status for “The Ceramic Valley” is a key factor and first step in achieving this ambition Stronger Together, the City Council’s Vision, has been developed by members to demonstrate how working together can create a stronger city we can all be proud of.

This vision has led to a number of priorities and objectives to secure the best possible outcomes for our residents. We now need to strengthen our commercial ability in balance with our social responsibilities. To do this we have to invest in people who show the ‘can do’ attitude that will bring about positive change in our city.

The new Assistant Director, Adult Social Care will transform the service to provide a clear vision, exceptional leadership and an innovative approach to integrate with health partners and other organisations at all levels, to deliver excellent service, and to achieve our overall vision, of enabling vulnerable people to live their lives well.

Stoke-on-Trent continues to transform itself, and the council’s vision means that there is a real opportunity for individuals seeking to significantly make a difference both to the city and to their careers.
