Head of Service – Strategic Commissioning and Quality

£60,846 - £68,919 per annum

Our Adult Social Care strategy ‘Promoting Independence, Supporting Communities’ places the person at the heart of what we do - Helping people help themselves shapes how services are commissioned, and customers are able to influence decision making through varied coproduction, engagement opportunities and partnership boards.

As the lead for departmental strategy, strategic commissioning and market shaping, you’ll ensure the continued delivery of effective and value for money support, improving the outcomes for service users and carers in Leicestershire.

Your strategic Adult Social Care experience means you’ll anticipate national and local developments and change, develop medium and long-term strategies and successfully prioritise between competing service demands.

The ideal candidate:

  • Substantial experience at a strategic, senior level in Adult Social Care
  • Strong change management and partnership working skills
  • Extensive and detailed knowledge of social care policy and best practice
  • Proven experience in budget management and in delivering significant efficiency savings
  • Ability to deal with a wide breath of strategy and policy issues and complex situations in a multidisciplinary and/or multi-agency setting
  • Demonstrable positive leadership behaviours  

Interviews are expected to be held on 28th and 29th October.
