Knowsley Council are seeking to recruit one enthusiastic and motivated Commissioning Manager to join its Whole Life Commissioning Team. Knowsley is a dynamic local authority which is seeking to transform the way that services are delivered in partnership with other public sector organisations, local businesses, and communities. The Council is committed to reducing local inequalities and ensuring that Knowsley residents are able to access necessary support.

This post postholder will be responsible for ensuring evidenced based, high quality and cost-effective commissioning of services.
