Further information

The local authority has invested in an innovative and responsive Quality Improvement Service that will be responsible for identifying poor quality service provision, advising and supporting providers to implement improvement plans and avert escalation. Critically the service will support a proactive approach to managing identified shortfalls, and empower providers and staff at all levels to improve service delivery. The ethos of the team will be one of support/advice and consultancy, developing ‘real’ provider relationships, celebrating good practice and providing support to managers and staff where shortfalls in care standards have been identified.

The Quality Improvement Service will also monitor the overall adult social care provider economy supporting local authority decision making through robust accountability and responsibility pathways where non-compliance is evidenced.

In order to achieve the above priorities, we are looking to recruit:

This post will provide expert advice and support to the independent adult social care provider market, helping providers to comply with regulations, meet essential quality and safety standards and develop improved service provision. The post holders will facilitate service user choice, empowerment and independence through personalisation with achievable measurable outcomes.
These roles require detailed knowledge of legislation and practice in at least one specialism within adult social care and an ability to link this knowledge to the promotion of best outcomes for vulnerable adults. These roles would ideally suit an experienced care professional ready for career progression.

This post offers the right individual the chance to broaden their skills, experience and expertise within the local authority. Training will be given and service specific training programmes will be available to support successful candidates.

For an informal discussion please contact Lorna Stockdale – Senior Quality Improvement Officer on 01733 863901.
