Would you like to be part of our talented highly skilled team, making a difference to people’s lives every day?
In Derbyshire we are moving adult social care forward for better lives. We are ambitious for local people and want the best outcomes for them. We’ve started to do things differently and as a member of our senior team you will be involved in helping us shape our service for the future. We are on a four-year journey to transform the way we work across the service.
We have redesigned our structure and as a result have some new posts together with key leadership and management roles that we are recruiting too.
We want people to have the opportunity of having what we would all want. To live in our own home in a familiar environment, in a community we know, surrounded by friends and family. Our approach is person centred and strength based, helping people achieve their goals and supporting them to be independent, resilient, and well.
We are proud of our colleagues and what they’ve achieved particularly over the last 18 months. Managing a social care service during a pandemic and keeping people safe has been challenging- a challenge they’ve risen to.
We’re realistic about the challenges, and we’re passionate about how we can support you to meet them. We are friendly, professional, engaging, and full of Derbyshire spirit , we are proud of our beautiful county, the diversity of its landscape and character of our architecture. From the Peak District (Britain’s first National park) and the Dales, to the crooked spire church in Chesterfield, and Chatsworth House it is a stunning place to live and work.
What will I be doing?
You’ll be leading or (be part of) one of the teams who are embedding and shaping our Adult Social Care offer. You can work flexibly, and some of our teams have opportunities for remote working; our technology platform and equipment are first class enabling you to connect and collaborate with colleagues.
