Assistant Director – Care & Support (County Wide Services) / Chief Social Care Practitioner
There’s something about North Yorkshire. The place. The people. The lifestyle.
And the opportunities. We are an organisation with a successful track record: performing well and striving to improve; pushing the boundaries to serve our population better.
In many ways we are counter-intuitive.
Whilst having to make significant savings, we have also invested more in prevention, protected mental health services and brought them back into the Council and consciously started to develop our in-house provider services. Inevitably, there are challenges. We serve some of the most remote rural communities in England. Deprivation is hidden but real – on the Coast, in rural areas and even in places like Harrogate – it just looks different from the stereotype.
This role is pivotal to our 10 year journey to support people to live healthier, longer, independent lives.
|Application deadline||25th June 2018|
|Job location||North Yorkshire|
|Salary||£76,526 - £91,658 (plus relocation package)|
As Assistant Director, you will lead our Living Well and prevention services, Mental Health, Provider Services and Practice team. And as a qualified Social Worker or Occupational Therapist, you will advocate, lead and develop confident and consistent practice as Chief Social Care Practitioner. We are looking for someone who is innovative and practical, emotionally intelligent, budget-savvy, and a real change agent. We want you to demonstrate strong personal and professional values and, literally, put those into Practice.
This career-enhancing opportunity is available as a result of retirement and career development movements; previous post holders have progressed into Director roles, so it provides the ideal opportunity for a leading social care practitioner to progress their career, in a large, high performing authority.
If this is you, we would love to hear from you.
