Assistant Director Adult Care and Integration

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council


Ref: GSe84269.1

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 new services, 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’re building homes that people can afford to live in, in communities people will aspire to live in.

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.

Reporting to the recently appointed DASS, this is a key role within the leadership team delivery the highest quality of care and support to our residents, with a focus on prevention and early intervention, to support people in leading independent and healthy lives. Collaboration and partnership working will be key, both with internal colleagues and stakeholders externally. We already have strong relationships with health partners, and you will be central to developing these further with the emerging ICS, as well as working with strong community groups and third sector organisations.
