Job Title: Head of Adult Disability Accommodation (Commissioning)
Location : Hertfordshire
Salary Range: Circa £75,000 per annum
Hours: 37 per week
Contract: Fixed Term Contract until March 2023
Appointments will always be made on the merit of the application and performance in the selection process – however, we are particularly encouraging applications from females and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates who are currently under-represented at senior level.
Hertfordshire County Council is launching an ambitious accommodation strategy for adults with disabilities and are seeking an experienced individual to lead this transformational approach to property for this group of citizens.
Committed to co-production and ambitious about creating homes that support people to be connected to their communities, you will be responsible for the strategic delivery of the strategy and the development of relationships with all key stakeholders. You will develop partnerships with borough and district councils, care providers, the NHS and most importantly the people who use our services and need accommodation. You will also ensure key strategic relationships are established with children’s services, other corporate colleagues, elected members and a wide range of housing providers and developers.
The new ADS Accommodation team will be leading on the modernisation of over 100 HCC owned properties, many currently occupied by our in-house supported living service, as well as overseeing new build capital programmes in partnership with partners across the housing sector. There is an expectation you will make best use of Council assets and deliver against Hertfordshire’s wider growth and sustainability agendas.
This new Head of Service will work as part of the Adult Disability Directorate and therefore have key links with commissioning and operational heads of services but with excellent working relationships to colleagues in older people’s services and the in-house transformation of day services, which also have significant property programmes.
