Project Manager - Care and Support Payments and Income Collection
About the role
Did you know that adult social care can be paid for in different ways depending on what people can afford to pay and what help they need? Some people's care and support is funded (either fully or in part) by East Sussex County Council? Other people pay for their care and support as a private arrangement from their own capital and savings.
We are considering how these contributions are collected and are looking for someone to help us make some significant changes and improvements to our policy and processes.
This new role is a real opportunity to have a positive impact on the Council’s finances through changes to the way we pay for some care and support services and how we support people to make these payments.
You will work with colleagues across the whole council and with independent sector providers to identify and implement opportunities to improve our processes to recover debts for unpaid care and support charges. You will make sure our decisions are supported by sound evidence which will include designing and carrying out consultations to seek views from the public and providers and working with finance officers to produce detailed financial modelling.
This role is initially for one-year with the possibility of an extension of up to a further twelve months.
We are looking for candidates who are:
- Self-motivated and organised
- Confident communicators
- Able to gather and critically analyse data from a range of sources and provide management information that supports evidence-based decision making
- Experienced working across organisations and teams
- Able to influence without authority

Interviews will be held at County Hall in Lewes on: 22 June 2023. If you are unavailable on this date let us know and we may be able to schedule an alternative date to interview you.
We offer a diverse range of benefits to help and support you during your employment. More information can be found on our benefits page.
