Full Time
Discovery exists to help each person we support to live a fulfilling life, to be equal in society and active in their community - it means being able to have choice and control in life. It means choosing to go out or to stay in, making friends and having relationships or finding and developing skills and interests. It also means managing a home, voting, staying healthy and being able to pursue employment or volunteering opportunities. It means being an active citizen.

It was the Dimensions Group's track record in proving life can get better for people with learning disabilities and autism that led to the creation of Discovery in April 2017. Discovery's role is to deliver the vision of equal and active citizenship that we share with Somerset County Council. This partnership was a big step for all involved. It is unprecedented for a Local Authority to partner with a single organisation and realise a shared vision on such a scale in this sector.

Following a restructure of our executive team we are recruiting to the exciting and crucial new post of Director of Transformation. We know Adult Social Care is under ever increasing pressure invariably leading to challenges and risk. The solution will involve innovation.

We believe that good is not enough and are striving to challenge the accepted ways of delivering services for people with learning disabilities and autism.

We are looking for a transformation expert to join our team at a pivotal moment in our short history. You will help us to drive change in our current services, to set up new services and ultimately to improve outcomes for the people we support. You will need to know how to deliver transformation, work with commissioners, colleagues, the people we support and their families to create truly exceptional and personalised support. You will truly believe in person centred support and will have a proven ability to impact change and improve social care services.
