Further Information

This is Redcar and Cleveland. We are an ambitious council keen to build on our strong track record of innovation and partnership working, ensuring that we create a flourishing future for the borough and all of its residents. Key to this is a committed workforce who always gives their best. Offering a fast paced, progressive working environment, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is a great career move.

The Adults & Communities Directorate consists of three strands, Adult Social Care, Community Development, and Public Health. Our aims are to continue to provide essential and highly valued services and to build capacity to enable local communities to make lasting change, improve quality of life and prosperity. As a directorate we lead on developing a culture of co-operation and co-production, respecting and nurturing the skills and talents of local people and enabling them to fulfil their potential.

We are looking for a suitably qualified person who can lead our Recovery and Independence Team. The suitable candidate will manage a large team of recovery and independence staff across Redcar & Cleveland to enable people to be supported to remain at home and live independently for as long as possible in the community. They will manage and drive forward the recovery and independence service to support people to regain and retain skills relating to everyday living following discharge from hospital or a sudden injury or illness and they will ensure service users receive a rapid response service and manage this function to ensure a high level of service is provided.

The suitable candidate will be highly motivated, organised and enjoy working autonomously as well as part of a team. You will be required to be responsible to work within legislative frameworks to deliver a high standard of care to users and carers of the service.

This post will require frequent travel between venues across the borough, a full driving license and access to a motor vehicle is required for this role.

The council holds ambassador status for the North East Better Health at Work Award.

We offer very attractive terms and conditions of employment, including generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working hours (where appropriate), membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and access to numerous other salary sacrifice schemes and staff benefits/discounts, including a lease car scheme.
