About the role
A Commissioning Manager is needed to lead on the re-commissioning of Home Care and Direct Payment Support. The post is offered on a fixed term basis for 24 months to cover for the secondment of the substantive post holder. The Home Care tender is well progressed and this will be the immediate priority of the successful candidate. The value of these contracts is in excess of £30m per annum.
The post holder will be required to oversee all aspects of the commissioning cycle in regards to these service areas so will need a thorough understanding and demonstrable experience of this. Also required is a working understanding of the social care provider market.
This will be a demanding role that offers the post holder a valuable opportunity to help shape these vital and high profile services. A high level of ownership and self management is required but a high level of support will be offered.
