About the role
East Sussex County Council has recognised that commissioning of individual service providers is becoming a much more important part of the overall provision of services to children and families and so is seeking to build and develop the commissioning team.
Local Authorities provide a broad range of service some of which are quite targeted and specific and it often makes sense to work in partnership with other partners such as sister Local Authorities, Clinical commissioning groups and third sector organisations. So we are looking for someone who has experience of making professional relationships across a range of other groups or companies not necessarily in the public sector but where they have developed analytical and problem solving skills working in partnership with others.
This post is within the Local Authorities Children’s Services ISEND (Inclusion Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and would include working with schools, Health professionals and the voluntary sector. It’s not vital for an applicant to have previous experience in these areas but it is important to have an enthusiasm and drive to improve services for children and young people with SEND within East Sussex.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency’s Points-based Immigration System.
Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
If you require any reasonable adjustments, due to disability, to enable you to participate fully in the process please contact the hiring manager on the contact details above.
Reasonable adjustments include things like an offline application form. If you would like to discuss your requirements further, please get in touch.
East Sussex County Council is an equal opportunities employer. We welcome applications from all suitable candidates, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or age. All applications are treated on merit.
