Executive Director, Adult Social Care and Health

London Borough of Lewisham
Up to £164,000

We’re proud of Lewisham’s diversity and our distinct and dynamic communities. Our population is growing and changing, and people are living longer but health inequalities are rife particularly for residents living in the most deprived areas of the borough. We know that tackling these inequalities cannot be achieved by one organisation alone: it must be collaborative. Working within the context of the South East London Integrated Care System, this critical role will work closely with our partners to ensure an accessible health and care system and achieve better outcomes for residents.


We are confident that the quality of our operational services serve residents well and so our new Director will have the space to think boldly and creatively as we face the future and meet the needs of our communities. As statutory DASS, you will join the council’s corporate leadership team and play a critical role tackling the wider determinants of health alongside corporate colleagues and elected members.
