Contract Type: Fixed term for 9 months (Maternity Cover)

Are you passionate about partnerships, innovation and improving the lives of vulnerable adults living on the Isle of Wight? If so, we have the role for you.

We are looking for the right person to join our proactive commissioning team as a commissioning assistant on a fixed term contract for 9 months to cover maternity leave.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wishes to learn more about how we commission and monitor services to meet the needs of our most vulnerable island residents. We are looking for someone with a knowledge of adult social care who has a commitment to ensuring the services we commission are of the best quality and deliver the ambitions of the Adult Social Care and Housing Care Close to Home strategy.

You will work with the team to establish and maintain positive relationships and work proactively with provider organisations as well as other stakeholders including, social care, voluntary sector, health partners and most importantly our island residents working together to co-design and co-produce outcome based commissioning solutions.

You will be part of a team working closely with the commissioners and will also be supported to hold your own portfolio of work. You will receive regular 1-1 meetings and support from your manager and there will be opportunities for further training to support your development.

The successful applicant will be based at County Hall, Newport but we also embrace remote working, therefore you will not be expected to be office based 5 days a week.

We are looking forward to receiving your application if you have what it takes to make a difference and share our vision and values.
