The role requires a strong grip on all aspects of adult care service delivery, financial management and commissioning, whilst driving our future strategy and vision.

You will bring relevant and recent senior experience of managing adult services, in a statutory setting, as well as an ability to work with a wide range of stakeholders including central government and regulators.
