Director of Adult Social Care and Health (East Kent)

Kent County Council
Circa £115k
The size and complexity of Kent, a county some 110 miles long serving 1.8m residents, is a challenging and dynamic context in which to deliver services. Yet it does not diminish our resolve to make a difference every day to our residents. Navigating the complexities and diversity of our towns and cities from deprived communities to Canterbury, one of the most visited cities in the UK, requires agility, pace and ambition.
The Role

We are proud of and committed to the diversity of our workforce. As one of two operational Directors reporting to our Corporate Director for Adult Social Care and health (DASS), you will be responsible for leading a large operational service and a significant budget.

Working closely and collaboratively with a range of partners including the NHS, care providers, public health, and the voluntary sector, you will play a significant role improving community and individual resilience. You will also be a key leader across population health improvement and ensure we put the person at the heart of all we do, focusing on what is important to them, and their families.

We are seeking an ambitious and creative Director with significant experience of working within a complex social care and health setting at a senior level. You will balance your passion for high quality operational delivery with a strategic approach and the ability to explore new agendas such as our ambitious approach to new digital and tech solutions to deliver outstanding social care and health services.
