Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and are 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 at Great Workforce.
We will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a 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!
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 with 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.
For the Commissioning Lead role we are looking to attract someone who has success in nurturing new care markets or has sound interests and creative ideas around this. We want to move away from traditional market approaches. This includes the way we work with the voluntary sector but also the development of an outcomes-based commissioning approach and development of micro-provider and Personal Assistant markets for social care to support people with what matters in their lives – a life not a service.
The successful candidate will need to be able to challenge the market in a constructive and creative way whilst continuing to build collaborative relationships in order to develop and transform the care market.
We are looking for someone who can engage effectively with senior management.   Good experience of working with and providing assurance to executive officers, or a sound understanding of how to do this well would be important. Prospective candidates would need to be comfortable dealing with scrutiny from elected members.
With the policy push towards integrated care, someone who is open to jointly commissioning across organisational boundaries as well as able to ensure a balance of benefits to respective organisations to achieve win-win outcomes. We are keen to find prospective candidates with a history of working collaboratively across council services including with housing, procurement and finance.
We are keen someone with experience of using data and intelligence to inform our commissioning strategy. A ‘can-do’ and expansive attitude coupled with the ability to work well in and foster a culture that is consistent with that we are trying to create in Nottingham City are vitally important too.
1. Collaborate with colleagues to ensure a joint up approach to Commissioning is deployed across the Directorate.
2. Lead on  the reshaping and recommissioning of services for identified areas and influence and negotiate with key stakeholders to ensure achievement of commissioning outcomes
3. Contribute and lead strategic commissioning reviews of adults and children's services delivered internally and externally by the Council to ensure best practice and the most effective use of resources.
4. Lead specific pieces of work to achieve changes to universal services to ensure the majority of individual needs can be met through community resources.
