Assistant Director, Social Care and Health Commissioning and Transformation
Salary: £103,045 - £115,674
Closing Date: Sunday 25 February
Kingston is a special place in South West London and has been a Royal borough longer than anywhere else. Our reputation for excellence is the result of our commitment to fostering a future that is greener, fairer, and safer for everyone—residents, workers, and visitors alike.
Following the appointment of Sam Morrison as our new Executive Director of Adult Social Care and Health, we are looking for a new Assistant Director for Adult Social Care and Health Commissioning and Transformation. At a time of financial pressure and growing need for all in the sector, this role will see you work collaboratively with Councillors, the Senior Leadership Team and colleagues to set the agenda for and make best use of the available resources to support the most vulnerable residents in Kingston.
This is a critical and exciting role where we will look to you to drive our new vision to translate corporate direction into operational plans and strategies across the Adult Social Care and Health directorate. In this role you will work with partners in our system to re-think how we commission; drive effective commissioning; and ultimately drive the transformation of our services to support early intervention and prevention.
In this role you will lead across the commissioning and transformation programmes with a people focus, delivering across the breadth of Adult social care, linking closely with Children’s Social Care, Housing and vulnerable people & families commissioning. You will lead across our partnerships, performance, placements & brokerage. You will also take a lead role in further developing collaboration and greater integration with colleagues in our ICS, both within Kingston and the wider South West London system.
We are looking for an experienced manager or senior leader with strategic capacity who can lead our complex partnerships, ensuring our system continues to work together to deliver better outcomes to those who need us most.
You will be commercially strong with excellent budget and fiscal management experience that will have enabled you to bring creativity and different thinking to how services are commissioned. We want someone that can see the bigger picture and that can work with us to solve a complex set of challenges.
Working with the Corporate Leadership Group and as a part of the Directorate Management Team, you will be a visible leader that gives direction and impact.
