Our transformation agenda in Norfolk Children's Service is succeeding for children and young people. In line with our strategic vision and with a track record of successful projects and delivery of benefits we want to focus further on enhancing our early help offer for families in Norfolk. To do this we want to implement the nationally recognised Family Hub model framework in Norfolk. We see this as being a key contribution to the delivery of the partnership led Prevention and Early Help Strategy in Norfolk.
This is an opportunity to be part of our highly skilled team with the focus to drive forward transformation at pace. Now is a fantastic moment to join our team:
- You will have the support from and direct access to our senior leaders who are fully supportive of the model, open to new ideas and people who think differently
- We have a substantial investment fund to deploy and a mandate to make change happen
- You will be joining a strong transformation team with a great reputation, where we will invest in your development
- You will have a chance to collaborate with a wide range of organisations in Norfolk who are focused on supporting children, young people and their families
As the Family Hub Programme Manager, you will be responsible for the delivery of the Family Hub Model in Norfolk. This will include translating the overall Family Hub vision into a coherent programme of delivery. Of particular importance will be enhancing the experience of families when accessing early help and through working in partnership with other professionals across the Norfolk how services are joined together so they make sense from a family's perspective.
This is an exciting opportunity to deliver a truly innovative version of the Family Hub model in Norfolk, building on and extending the principles that have been implemented in other areas of the country. To do this you'll convert ideas into ambitious proposals to formulate strong, evidence based and robust business cases, with confidence in the idea to secure sign off. You will build teams that will drive development and delivery and will initiate handover to business as usual at the optimum time with clearly articulated plans to realise improved outcomes for families and reduce demand for specialist services.
Appropriate challenge and support to senior managers, business and workstream leads is a key part of this role. You will coach colleagues in various change techniques to develop a transformational culture and ethos in children's services.
With a track record of change management and leadership, you'll evidence your creativity in developing new solutions, applying concepts from one area to another and making it happen. As a strong communicator and influencer, you'll build energy around the agenda with financial acumen to understand financial triggers in a complex organisation.
Public or private sector - you'll be the person with exceptional change and transformation skills. You'll have the intellectual curiosity to systematically change outcomes for children and young people.
