This vast county – the largest local authority area in England – is home to stunning countryside, castles and coastline. Now the council is on the hunt for talented people to take on key roles that will play an important part in Northumberland’s future success.

The Head of Care Management will not only lead on the Council’s statutory responsibilities around adult social care but thanks to integration also have the opportunity to lead multi-disciplinary teams and get involved in areas such as public health and wellbeing.

As Head of Service for Care Management you will oversee budgets, practice and performance in a number of key areas within an integrated adult social care management system, including responsibility for the management of the care management teams who support older people and individuals with learning/physical disabilities.

The successful postholder will have a professional qualification in social work or a relevant health or social care discipline, in-depth knowledge of relevant legislation and the broader social care and health agenda. You will have well-developed leadership skills and the ability to work in close partnership with a wide range of other organisations, as well as across the Council, are all essential requirements for this post.

Please note that the successful postholder may be appointed as a Northumberland County Council or Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust employee dependent upon their individual circumstances and will be discussed further at interview.
