This is an exciting new opportunity working in a leadership capacity as part of an integrated care team reporting to the senior manager for regulated services.

The post holder will have responsibility for the operational management of the CIS. This role includes responsibility for

  • The management of the social care workforce to provide timely, responsive services working at all times to a reablement philosophy, enabling clients to remain as independent as possible;
  • Providing leadership and direction to team leaders, ensuring that safe, compassionate, responsive and effective services are delivered across the pathways and within budget;
  • Delivering structured rehabilitation and reablement programmes to clients in their own homes or in transition bedded units;
  • Responding rapidly to someone identified as being at risk of an acute admission, providing the care and support required alongside other health and care professionals;
  • Enabling staff to assist clients in a range of daily living tasks;
  • Promoting health and safety for service users and their carers.
  • Leading the team(s) in accordance with the principles of the Vanguard Method for Systems Thinking (VMST), ensuring continuous improvement of the system's capability to deliver against its purpose.
  • You will be given learning opportunities to grow and support your use of this approach, requiring you to:
  • Focus your leadership and the team(s) on the delivery of the service's purpose, through action on the system and development of staff
  • Ensure that decisions are based on facts and data, using a PLAN approach (proportionate, legal, accountable, necessary)
  • Have a thorough understanding of the type and frequency of demand within this model, ensuring you a) equip the team to understand the concepts of value and failure demand and b) enable them to act on them appropriately
  • Have a good understanding of how the work flows through the system, what the barriers are (known as system conditions), which activities provide value to the customer and how to switch off waste (encouraging a 'why do we do that' questioning culture within the service)
  • Ensure that measures are used to understand and improve performance of the system, are derived from the work and are accurate, demonstrating variation over time, are visible to the team as a whole, and are used by leaders to actively act on the system (identifying new measures as required)
