Waltham Forest Borough Council in Partnership with the Waltham Forest and East London (WEL) CCGs are implementing a new integrated commissioning structure and arrangements. This exciting development comes at a time when the health and social care sectors are looking to commissioning to support many of the local responses to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Implementation of the new integrated model is underway with the assimilation of existing staff into new roles that have been designed to think and work across the health and social care spectrum, and who are adapting to their new ways of working. The new team currently has a number of vacancies as follows:
Integrated Commissioning Manager (X3) Agenda for Change band 8a / Local Authority PO8
The integrated commissioning managers are considered flexible roles, with the capacity to shift and alter their portfolios and responsibilities according to the demands of the system and the workflow. We are therefore seeking candidates with strong generic commissioning skills, and experience of delivering commissioning programmes in either health or social care but with significant experience of navigating the decision-making processes and governance arrangements of both. The initial focus for one of these roles is likely to be on NHS children’s services with some support offered to other agendas. The second role will support within the mental health portfolio, and the third will focus on Learning Disabilities.
Successful applicants for both the Head of Integrated Commissioning and the Integrated Commissioning Manager positions will have the choice of being employed by either the WEL CCGs or Waltham Forest Council. The Commissioning and Supplier Relationship Managers will be employed by Waltham Forest Council.
For further information on any of these roles, please contact Darren Newman, Assistant Director of Integrated Commissioning at Darren.firstname.lastname@example.org
