Are you passionate about making a positive and lasting difference for the people of Hull? Hull City Council children services are looking for exceptional individuals like you to join the newly formed Children’s Integrated Commissioning Team.

The Children’s Integrated Commissioning Team will ensure the effective design and delivery of policy, solutions or services. The best commissioners have the confidence to challenge the status quo, take on radical change, collaborate effectively with internal/external stakeholders, gain a deep understanding of the need and target resources effectively to meet those needs.

The Children’s Integrated Commissioning Team will be fundamental to the review, design and implementation of services for Children, Young People and Families in Hull. You will contribute to the development and delivery of the commissioning, quality assurance and contract monitoring mechanisms within children services.

The successful candidate will need to be able to evidence success in health and social care commissioning and have experience of working with multi agency partners such as Clinical Commissioning Groups, Police and the VCSE (Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprises) market.

Duties will include problem solving, spend/budget analysis and you must have strengths in the collation, analysis and presentation of financial/performance data. The role will be far reaching spanning across the whole of children services core directorate functions, with the postholder having the confidence and capability to independently investigate new areas of work and lines of enquiry.

The successful applicant must have a good standard of general education and be an effective and experienced operator within financial and health and social care sectors. Core competencies include extensive experience in producing fully researched formal reports, service specifications and liaising with public facing stakeholders.
