The Joint Commissioning Unit in Havering commissions service on behalf of Adults, Children's Social Care and Public Health. As such there are a diverse range of expectations across different programmes of activity. They require experienced social care commissioners and project managers who can work intensively and accurately to take on carefully briefed pieces of work. You could be experienced in Children's or adults social care, or both.

The work itself may vary from taking forward commissioning exercises to working on projects to improve commissioning systems in place or deliver improvement projects designed to improve outcomes to vulnerable individuals. The posts will be short term, probably for three months from January to March inclusive and therefore will need to be very proactive in moving things forward and, potentially, ensuring they are briefed properly to be moved on from the point reached.

You will be adept at working with a range of stakeholders and being aware of the pressures faced by social care. Understanding of social care and health systems and the integration agenda will be expected. The roles are very much about delivery and will likely require addressing a range of projects. The JCU operates a matrix management system so it may be that you will report to different programme managers for different pieces of work, so will have to be flexible and able to meet differing priorities.
