We’ve got an exciting opportunity available for talented individuals to join our workforce - perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Read on to find out more…
    
Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and we are continually working around the clock to deliver services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
    
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services and recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
     
We will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
    
Nottingham City Council is committed to recruiting a talented workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are a fair and inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and with different abilities. We recruit for diversity and value difference.
     
We particularly want to hear from you if you are from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community, identify within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community (LGBT) and if you are Disabled - these groups of people are underrepresented in our workforce, and we’d like to reflect our local population more through our recruitment processes.
     
We have always been open to flexible working and the COVID-19 pandemic provided us with some new options to work in a completely different way. We welcome a conversation about flexible working at the point of interview.
     
We are looking for experienced commissioners with experience in Public Health , Adult Social care or Transforming Care to join the Commissioning Team here at Nottingham City Council and play a key role in a team focused on improving the health outcomes of the people of Nottingham. 
      
Nottingham City Council provides services across the City.  We take a lead in critical policy areas, and we work in partnership with local businesses, voluntary organisations, other local authorities and health partners in order to provide the people of Nottingham with excellent services.
     
The Commissioning Team  is dedicated to helping the people of Nottingham to be able to live in healthy places, promote healthy lifestyles and preventing ill-health.
       
The core focus of this role is to lead and support the commissioning of a range of services that support the Transforming Care Partnership and the People’s Directorate to meet its statutory responsibilities and priorities, and in turn to improve the health of the wider population. You will be the lead commissioner for a dedicated portfolio that will utilise all your skills across the commissioning cycle. You will work with complex data to monitor trends and identify issues, you will work closely with procurement to help deliver the commissioning of new services, and you will be leading service development.  You will need to maximise value and effectiveness for all services in your portfolio and will need to build strong working relationships with partners both internally and externally to achieve this. You will also have an opportunity to contribute to strategy and policy decisions and will help to shape the future of the People’s Directorate as a whole.
       
To be considered for the role, you will need experience of commissioning services. You will need proven exposure across the full commissioning cycle, and a solid knowledge of relevant policies and strategies. Importantly you will be motivated by the desire to make continuous improvements and contribute towards positive change.
       
We know we’re asking for a lot, but in return we think we have a lot to offer. There’s the role itself, which offers a chance to truly make a difference to the health outcomes of the people of Nottingham. You will have a broad range of responsibilities within a dedicated portfolio of work and will be working with a diverse and constantly evolving population. We might be biased, but we think it is a great role in a great place. If you are still reading, and you think you have what it takes, we would love to hear from you.
      
ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS: 
  • To provide commissioning expertise to all colleagues and stakeholders
  • To collaborate with stakeholders to produce and review options for service delivery. 
  • To lead on the reshaping and recommissioning of services, which are outcome focussed 
  • To provide strategic reviews of services against priorities
  • To be a Critical Friend, providing challenge to senior operational colleagues and scoping potential transformation to best meet priorities.
  • To work to budgetary agreements and guidelines and make proposals for financial re-alignment where appropriate including decommissioning and re-investment.
