How you’ll make a difference as a Business Support Manager ….. by being a positive, enthusiastic, motivated individual with a ‘can do’ attitude to lead and offer strategic change and oversight of the Business Support function for the Department of Children, Adults and Health. You’ll help front line teams deliver some of the most important and valued work done by local authorities including supporting social workers to deliver services to vulnerable Clients.

What does a typical day look like?

Our business support function is critical to the services we deliver to our most vulnerable residents and service users and also provides a wide range of public-facing services to include statutory safeguarding (children and adults) and education support responsibilities. Initially a main focus of your role will be to bring together the business support management team, ensuring current practices and processes are working efficiently and consistently, whilst sustaining an excellent service.

Currently we have four main business support teams who are managed day to day by experienced Business Support Team Leaders and these will form part of your team who will be line managed and supported by you.

You will lead on a number of cross departmental functions, such as service and business planning, committee support, departmental communications, equalities, business continuity planning, accommodation and other departmental initiatives.

You will have the opportunity to develop and grow the service, by using your initiative and innovate ways of identifying improvements to the way we work.

Leadership and Management experience, including motivating staff to achieve organisational objectives and ensuring they understand the changing environment in which they are delivering services

Proven ability to develop in-depth understanding of legislation and to critically apply this knowledge to recommend and implement improvements in service planning and monitoring.

Significant in-depth experience of business, equalities planning and monitoring and development and business continuity management in a Local government or other public sector setting.

You will have excellent strategic awareness including the ability to see the bigger picture, and have proven skills and experience in the monitoring and quality-assuring of business and strategic plans against corporate and statutory requirements.

You must have proven ability to use initiative, and to work independently and to established headlines.
