Commissioning Officer – Adult Social Care Improvement Team P04 £40,653 - £43,503

Are you looking for an opportunity to play a key role in delivering high quality services to those that need it most?

Islington Council and the Islington Clinical Commissioning Group’s Commissioning services are instrumental in ensuring that services provided directly match the needs of local residents. In order to continue to do so, we are seeking a Joint Commissioning Officer who will work within the Adult Social Care Improvement team.

The successful candidate will support the Head of Adult Social Care Improvement in developing, implementing and monitoring commissioned services.

About you

Whilst commissioning experience is desirable in order to be successful within our Commissioning service, we place equal weight on experience of having worked closely with service users within a commissioned service. Ideally, you will have had experience in working with a range of providers delivering services to older adults, learning disabilities and/or mental health cohorts. Additionally, we are looking for candidates who are solution focussed, with a positive attitude and committed to the provision of excellent services for all residents.

We are looking for individuals who will place the complex needs of the people of Islington at the centre of everything they do, ensuring that services are accessible, of the highest quality and represent value for money. Confidence and assertiveness will be key to your success as you develop and maintain a range of effective working relationships, both internally and externally. You will also bring a strong understanding of health and care services and a firm political sense.

About us

Islington Council and Islington Clinical Commissioning Group’s Commissioning Service is firmly committed to ensuring that public money is spent in ways that directly match public needs. Careful assessment of needs, combined with effective partnership working, allow us to provide outcome focused and cost-effective services.

We hold our commissioning service in high regard, recognising it as a key service which has an extremely positive impact on the quality of life enjoyed by Islington residents.

We commit to our staff and provide a wide range of learning and development opportunities as well as a supportive and collaborative working environment in which people can thrive. In return we simply ask that you share in our commitment to the residents of Islington.
