Head of Performance, Change and Assurance

London Borough of Brent
Up to £101,000

Be part of something great in Brent, one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse parts of London, by serving some of the most vulnerable members of our society. We’re building a fairer, more equal Brent for everyone, and these three crucial head of service roles in the borough will provide outstanding leadership across adult social care services. We have excellent relationships with our partners and are proud of the true collaboration that is driving our joined-up work – be part of a great team and help us to continue to tackle social care, health inequalities and improve lives.


The Head of Performance, Change & Assurance will lead the transformation and savings programmes, CQC Assurance responses and oversee innovation activity across Adult Social Care, with other directorate and corporate colleagues, and wider community and voluntary sector partners. A key aspect of the role includes preparing the Council for the introduction of a new quality assurance and inspection regime across Adult Social Care functions.

This will involve establishing and taking responsibility for leading the delivery of the Transformation and Savings Programme to ensure it delivers the key outcomes and savings that are agreed, managing the dependencies and risks (including those that are part of the Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), Corporate Transformation and Social Care Policy implementation), and being accountable for the preparations for CQC Assurance and to oversee the implementation of any improvement action plans that are required following CQC assessment. The successful candidate will also be the lead for driving forward innovation across Adult Social Care, seeking out best practice both regionally, nationally, and internationally to identify innovation that will support Brent to continue to have a sustainable, high quality adult social care model.
