Exciting opportunity to work at Manchester Local Care Organisation

If you would like to find out more about this role and our vision for integrated health and social care neighbourhood working within Manchester please join us at an open session between 5.30pm and 6.30pm on 22nd January 2019 at Manchester Local Care Organisation, 5th Floor, Barnet House, 53 Fountain Street, Manchester, M2 2AN.

In Manchester we’re transforming the way we work with people in our local communities to transform care and improve health. At Manchester Local Care Organisation - the new NHS and local authority partnership that is leading health and social care integration in the city – we are looking for Neighbourhood Leads who can drive that transformation and bring together health, care and other partners across areas of the city.

By working better together, we believe we will be able to plan and provide better care closer to home. We’ll be able to support the people of Manchester to live healthier, more independent and fulfilling lives. We’ll help them to be part of thriving and supportive communities.

We’re currently working to establish our 12 Integrated Neighbourhood Teams across the city and our Neighbourhood Leads play a crucial role in this. We have already made a number of appointments and are now seeking to fill the remaining roles. You’ll be leading health, primary care and social care professionals who will be working together as one team. You’ll help them work collaboratively with voluntary and community groups to empower people to take control of their care and improve wellbeing. It’s ‘devolution in action’: the people of Manchester taking control of the way their own health and care services best meet their needs.

These roles will:
  • Facilitate each neighbourhood to make positive changes to population health and wellbeing, with genuine co-production with the community. 
  • Lead the quintet of professional leads from different professions and organisations 
  • Develop a team with the right values, attitudes, behaviours, knowledge and skills to support the neighbourhood 
  • Ensure effective partnerships are developed with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector 
  • In collaboration with community partners, understand the needs of each neighbourhood and develop and deliver the long term strategic plan for the neighbourhood. 
Manchester Local Care Organisation is a partnership between Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester City Council, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Health and Care Commissioning, and The Manchester Primary Care Partnership.

If you would like to discuss this role further, please contact Marie Daniel - Executive Assistant (mobile no. 07779 981 001) who will be able to connect you with a member of the MLCO leadership team.

The post is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (amended in 2013). Appointable candidates will be required to apply for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Information provided by you or the DBS will be dealt with in a confidential manner and in accordance with the DBS Code of Practice which can be viewed here. We have a policy on the Employment of Ex-Offenders and it is available upon request.

This post is also subject to satisfactory references, proof of right to work in the UK in accordance with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 and other pre-employment checks where applicable.

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer and we positively welcome applications from all candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
