At North Yorkshire County Council, we are looking to appoint to the pivotal position of Head of Social Care Provider Services, who will lead and further transform directly provided Adult Social Care Services.

We are a high performing authority with a reputation for delivering high quality services- over 97% of our inspected locations rated as good. Far from complacent, we are hungry to achieve more. Our success provides a unique opportunity a new Head of Social Care Provider Services to shape the future of our services, through sustainable and transformational change.

Where other authorities have outsourced all of their provider services; given the size and scale in North Yorkshire we are committed to directly providing services alongside commissioned services; to ensure that our residents have high quality, outcome focussed support and choice, in particular for those with the most complex needs.

Whilst Yorkshire is wonderfully diverse and with this comes great opportunity, variety and scale this conversely brings complexities and challenges in delivering high quality, accessible, equitable services across this large geographical area and its dispersed population.

As a key member of our Leadership Team, you will play a lead role in shaping strategic transformation, contributing to and championing the development of our provider services function.

Your passion for and relentless focus on improving people’s lives, particularly those with complex or niche requirements, will drive you, building effective strength-based, localised health and social care communities. A real champion of quality you will know what outstanding care looks like and will support and challenge the service to achieve this. This will be underpinned by high expectations and standards and a strong performance focus.

Forming deep collaborative partnerships is the platform from which you will realise your success, working seamlessly together with our partners across the entire system. As a high profile leader, you act with integrity, leading by example and taking pride in promoting your service internally and externally. An ambassador for NYCC, you will ensure we have a presence locally within the council and with key stakeholders, regionally with key partners and nationally, making sure we have a national voice and are at the forefront of the national agenda.

We know that we have to continue to innovate if we are to adapt successfully to the challenges this service will face over the coming years, so developing a culture of continuous learning and facilitating sustainable and continuous transformation, where learning and improving is ongoing will be a priority. You and your teams will champion digital developments and modernisation.

Ensuring workforce capacity and resilience will also be fundamental. You will have the ability to identify nurture and develop talent, creating the workforce of tomorrow. In order to achieve this, you will create and offer good work and be an advocate for ensuring careers in care become a career of choice.

We are looking for passionate and talented individuals with resilience, determination and commitment who want to help bring about real change and help develop a "best in class" Adult Social Care model. People who can identify potential in others, who are adaptable and flexible, and who can truly lead by example, motivating their teams every day and embracing the digital agenda.

To be successful, you will have experience of leading and transforming the adult social care services within a large complex organisation within the public sector or delivering to the public sector.

Whilst this is a challenging role, the rewards could be tremendous, both professionally and personally. You will feel a genuine sense of achievement in knowing that you have made a difference to people’s lives, in one of the most beautiful places in the UK.

If you have the vision, leadership and the drive to meet our challenges head on, we look forward to receiving your application.
