The role

This is an exciting opportunity to work in an award-winning team which sits across the five North London Councils - Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey & Islington – where the aim is to deliver programmes of work that address shared priorities in partnership and to promote a strong local authority presence within North London’s Sustainability and Transformation Programme Integrated Care System (ICS).

A key part of being the NLC Commissioning Manager will be to support commissioning approaches for bedded care services across NCL. You will secure provision in line with local need and to yield cost avoidance and/or financial savings, whilst ensuring the market remains sustainable. The role will also entail working in a matrix way across all domains in the team; supporting the strategic leads and programme managers to deliver system and population wide change.

This post is hosted by Camden Council at 5 Pancras Square but will work with a wide range of people across the 5 boroughs.

This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and will require an Enhanced DBS.

About you

We are looking for an experienced commissioner who is looking to further develop their skills, experience and impact in delivering and evaluating change. You will benefit from direct exposure to senior local government officers and politicians across five local authorities. You will bring an ability to think strategically and support a complex and evolving local agenda. You will also bring the skills required to support the development and delivery of a programme of work that yields benefits for the local authorities, NHS partners and local residents.

To be successful in this post, you will be excellent at building credible relationships across a wide range of stakeholders across the 5 Councils and NHS partners. You will be experienced at working collaboratively and successfully across agencies to deliver improved outcomes and will be confident in developing excellent partnerships across the local authority and health landscape. You will be able to deal with conflicting views including offering pragmatic and palatable solutions.
