12 Month Maternity Cover Fixed Term/Secondment Contract 

North East London CCG, the London Borough of Hackney, and the City of London Corporation have been working towards a place-based integrated model for the planning and delivery of health, social care and well-being services to improve outcomes for our residents and patients. This means providers and commissioners working together with clinicians/practitioners and patients/residents in new ways around a population-based budget for services in City and Hackney. This new model for the system is based on the integrated care systems and partnerships being implemented across the country and signposted nationally as the key model for future health and care services. 

Our integrated commissioning and care structure has been in place since April 2017 and the City of London Corporation, London Borough of Hackney and North East London CCG are now making decisions jointly on how to make best use of the overall budgets for health and social care in Hackney and the City. 

This is an exciting programme of work which is transforming the way services are commissioned and provided involving co-production and co-design to improve services and outcomes for residents.

We are looking to recruit a Transformation Programme Manager to support the Children, Young people, Maternity and Families workstream, working directly with the Workstream Director and Transformation Support Officer on a secondment or fixed term basis. Backfill costs will be available to the seconding organisation.

The post is available as a secondment opportunity for staff working within the London Borough of Hackney, City of London Corporation or North East London. We are keen to bring in colleagues with relevant experience, skills and knowledge to help us move forward with our plans.

This is a really exciting opportunity to:

– Help shape the future of health and social care services across City and Hackney, and gain insight into transformation and change management

– Work with a range of clinicians and practitioners from across social care and health sector – including public health professionals, social workers, mental health specialists, GPs and secondary/acute care consultants

– Work directly with senior leaders to help them think through approaches to systems and programme management

– Enable and support co-production with local residents to ensure plans for services are genuinely informed by their experience and insight

– Gain exposure to all parts of the local health and social care economy, from social services to mental health, children’s services to emergency services, public health and primary care

– Play an important role in shaping an innovative model of health and social care, and gain insight into accountable care systems – a key future model for health, care and wellbeing services.

The aim of the role is to provide focused programme management support to the Workstream Director of the Children, Young People, Maternity and Families workstream. 

Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
