The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham is seeking two Senior Commissioners to work in the Children’s Care and Support Commissioning Team. This is an exciting opportunity to join a new team and shape the way we work as a commissioning council. Our Children’s Care and Support Commissioning Team works in partnership with operational colleagues to develop and deliver high quality provision and solutions that meet the care and support needs of children, young people and families.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a service that is leading on the development of new models of commissioning and care. You will be able to lead the way in outcomes based commissioning across the council and have a real impact on the services we offer. You will be a creative thinker who can develop innovative solutions to improve outcomes for children, young people and families and provide value for money.
You will have the opportunity to lead on a range of commissioning activity including the commissioning of services for children with specialist educational needs and disabilities, early years, transport, brokerage as well as services for looked after children and care leavers. This is an exciting opportunity to develop creative solutions in a challenging market.
You will have a commissioning, strategy or transformation background. Whilst experience of working within a children’s public services context would be desirable, it is not a requirement.
