Our plan is to make the most of the economic growth of the borough, build sustainable communities, improve services to get things right first time, find new solutions to long standing complex challenges and bring strategic leadership to strengthen and build new partnerships.

As the Head of Adult Safeguarding & Care Management you are at the heart of delivering the Camden plan and we will need you to transform the way we do things, identifying new and innovative ways to achieve this.

As part of the Senior Management team you will lead, manage and provide strategic direction to develop and deliver an assessment and care management service for older people that is designed to give them independence, choice and control by helping them meet their needs and live a good quality life.

Committed to making adult services a top priority they need you, a skilled professional determined to transform services for this London Borough.

We need a doer. Someone used to being operationally strong and experienced with social care practice but also confident in taking the strategic lead on work across the service with experience of delivering tangible improvement and a passion and commitment to work through the challenges.

If you have a degree and knowledge of front line social work that’s a bonus, not a clincher.
