    Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

Ref: GSe81578

Rotherham is a borough with its sights set on the future. This is an excellent time to join us. We’ve come through the global pandemic in the best Rotherham traditions, working hard, looking out for each other and protecting the most vulnerable. As we face up to the coming years, the Council’s role in our community should live up to that ethic. We’ve come a long way in reforming our social care services, investing in bricks and mortar, staff and provision.

We’ve started a huge programme of regeneration, investing in transport, town centres, villages, libraries and local neighbourhoods, and we are committed to ensuring every community realises the full benefit of this investment. We are building homes that people can afford and creating localities in which people aspire to live.

We also know that some members of our community need more support than others, and we must support them to live independent and fulfilling lives. Our Council plan is clear about the benefit we will bring to every resident in every corner of the Borough, including those in the greatest need of support, to ensure that their voice is heard and that they have equal opportunity to realise their ambitions.

As the Strategic Director of Adult Care, Housing and Public Health, you will be a key part of the Strategic Leadership Team, working collegiately to deliver our Council plan.  You will be a key member of a number of partnership teams across the Borough and more widely in South Yorkshire and beyond. Team work and partnerships is how we work here, and you will be central to delivering cost effective and outcomes focused  social care and public health services, taking responsibility for shaping how we best support our communities.  You will also provide strategic support and direction that will help us transform the Borough through the delivery of decent homes that provide a safe place to enable people to thrive and achieve their potential.
