Newcastle is a great city, one that never stands still. We’re proud of our city and the work that we do.

The last two years have brought significant challenges but also some real opportunities to learn and use that learning to develop the exciting plans we have to improve the way we support both people and the neighbourhoods they live in.

We have a unique opportunity to build on the assets that are found in our neighbourhoods by reshaping the way we commission and procure services to realise and develop their strengths.

We are recruiting a Service Manager to lead our Commissioning and Procurement team and deliver on our ambitions for social care and inclusion.

You’ll be motivated by improving the outcomes for people and have experience of co-production, service design and collaborative working. You will have a good understanding of social care and inclusion services and the local partner landscape. You will be someone who can form strong and influential partnerships, think strategically and make connections across systems. You’ll also need to have strong financial and commercial instincts.

If you are committed to working in a system that supports people to live their best life then this is an exciting time to join us and help shape our future.

You can hear more about what it is like to work as part of our team by speaking with Angela Jamson, Head of Integrated Services on 0191 2116043.

Interviews will take place week commencing 4 October 2021.
