This is an exciting opportunity to work for a top performing unitary authority with a reputation for innovation and efficiency. Following an internal restructure in which Adult Social Services became its own Directorate, North Somerset Council is looking to appoint a new Assistant Director of Adult Social Services. We are looking for someone with the determination, skills and experience to make a real difference to service delivery and improve outcomes for our vulnerable adults.
It is an exciting time for North Somerset as it begins work with the Clinical Commissioning Group and key partners on the development of an Integrated Care System and increased joint working between health and social care.
If you have extensive experience of leading and managing adult social care services and a proven ability to innovate and lead transformation, motivating and empowering staff to effectively manage demand and modernise services and packages of care, we would welcome your application for this role.
The successful candidate will have imagination, flair and bring new ideas and a proven track record to help drive forward our transformation program. You will have significant experience of working in a senior level in Adult Services and be a confident leader who is capable of managing complex and challenging issues. You will also bring a wealth of experience and skills to continue our strong partnership working and a real commitment and motivation for the opportunities and challenges ahead.
