Full time

Bath & North East Somerset is a wonderful and diverse place including the World Heritage City of Bath, the market towns of Keynsham, Radstock and Midsomer Norton, and rural communiti es nestled in the beautiful countryside of the Chew Valley, the foothills of the Mendips and the Cotswolds.

Tackling the climate and ecological emergency and giving people a bigger say, shapes the way in which we enable our communities to live fulfi lling, engaged and independent lives.

The Council has been through a significant restructure to better align our services with our ambitions and to enable us to deliver our commitments to our communities, residents and local businesses. We are seeking to appoint a new Director of Adult Social Care (DASS) who will bring strategic leadership to the service and wider corporate management team, who can innovate and further develop our well regarded social care services. We have highly developed integrated commissioning arrangements with our CCG and a relationship with Virgin Care to provide services to residents.

Strong local partnerships have been key to our success, and these partnerships have developed further during the pandemic. We are particularly proud of the innovative arrangements we have put in place through our Health and Wellbeing Hub.

As an organisation, we have ambitious plans to deliver improvements and innovations, including through the use of technology. 2021 will be a year of real change as we put our council back on a sustainable fi nancial footing.
