  • Salary: £53,168 - £62,001 per annum plus Outer HCAS

Organisational context

An opportunity has arisen within NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (SELCCG) for a Partnership Manager within the Bexley Place Based Team of SELCCG.

Bexley is facing significant challenges across the health and social care system which are difficult to solve because of incomplete, contradictory and changing requirements that are multifactorial and highly complex. These issues go beyond the ability of one single organisation to resolve and require significant system-wide redesign, mindset and behaviour change to create the necessary impact.

The Bexleycare Partnership is a vehicle for Bexley’s Health and Care Partners to provide system oversight and delivery of Bexley strategy. Members of the Bexleycare Partnership work collaboratively to develop and deliver health and care across the whole system and to recommend key decisions to the Health & Well-being Board.

The postholder will be expected to work confidently and collaboratively within high levels of uncertainty and ambiguity and will have significant experience of partnership working with local authority, wider NHS partners and the voluntary sector.

As the successful candidate you will have experience of designing and leading multi-agency meetings and events and excellent communication, stakeholder management skills and OD skills and experience. You will also have strong programme management experience in commissioning and experience of supporting and leading transformation of services, including the development of models of care.

Whilst this post is offered on a substantive basis, we will consider applicants seeking a secondment for a minimum of 12 months.

For an informal discussion or visit please contact Diana Braithwaite, Borough Director - Operations (Bexley), please email diana.braithtwaite@nhs.net.

Interviews and a stakeholder panel via Microsoft Teams are expected to take place during the week commencing Monday 19 October.

Previous applicants need not apply and no agencies.

  • Location: Civic Offices, 2 Watling Street, Bexleyheath, Kent, DA6 7AT
  • Reporting to: Managing Director
  • Package: £65,000 salary plus Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)

Background

The London Borough of Bexley has a proud history at the heart of the capital’s evolution and gateway to Kent. With London’s growth moving outwards, the borough is entering an exciting new period and the Council has published ambitious plans to harness the benefits of good growth for existing and new residents and businesses. This includes regeneration, primarily along the River Thames, to create 31,000 homes and 17,500 jobs with new infrastructure including an extended Elizabeth Line from Abbey Wood to Ebbs fleet. The area has the potential to be an exemplar, 21st century suburb.

London's economy continues to grow, with much of that growth now moving outwards, especially to the east of the capital. The London Borough of Bexley is seeking to capture and manage that growth and the opportunities it creates. The implementation of the Council’s Growth Strategy will be core activities for BexleyCo over coming years, in particular regeneration along Bexley’s Riverside supported by new infrastructure.

BexleyCo is a local delivery vehicle formed by the London Borough of Bexley.

BexleyCo’s primary objective is to support the Council in delivering its Growth Strategy, making a difference to Bexley as a place as well as acting commercially to generate additional revenue streams.

The Business plan includes developing at pace an initial phase of sites to provide around 500 quality homes and further pipeline of at least 700 new homes.

BexleyCo's contribution will extend far beyond these numbers. The company will be driven by a strong ethos to deliver quality development, great design, enhanced landscape and place. It will look to support local jobs, the wider skills agenda and will actively engage with communities.

Many of our schemes are located in strategically important places such as Felixstowe Road, Abbey Wood, opposite the new Crossrail station and gateway to Peabody’s Housing Zone.
