Do you want a job that makes a positive difference in people’s lives? This is an exciting opportunity to lead a new, pioneering programme which is at the heart of Croydon’s New Model of Care, driving preventative, holistic, people-centred care. The programme is funded by the OBC (Outcomes based Commissioning) Alliance, a partnership between Croydon Council, Croydon CCG, SLAM, GP collaborative and Age UK Croydon. It will continue to be in the spotlight and therefore it is vital that this programme is delivered to the highest quality and is able to demonstrate its impact on the people of Croydon. We are looking to recruit an outstanding project manager to lead a team of Personal Independence Coordinators (PICs). The PICs work alongside health and care professionals, adopting a multidisciplinary approach to working with older people who have long term health and social care needs. Most importantly, they ensure that care planning is influenced by the wishes identified by individuals, so that independence can be either improved or maintained. The Project Manager will be responsible for the operational and strategic management of this project, ensuring the delivery of the programme on time and within budget, in accordance with the programme plan and governance arrangements. If you are passionate about making a difference to the lives of the older people who use our services, and those who care for them and want to contribute to an organisation which is continuously striving to improve, then we would love to hear from you. The important qualities we are looking for are; Excellent communication skills and ability to negotiate at all levels Excellent planning, development and organisational skills A positive attitude and the ability to problem solve The ability to work with and motivate others
