Are you interested in becoming a key part of innovative and forward-thinking organisations, developing your leadership skills across traditional health and social care boundaries? If the answer is yes, then we would like to hear from you.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced health or social care professional to join our team of Integrated Neighbourhood Team Managers. Based in the lovely county of Suffolk, this is a key role to support the development of integrated working across health and social care in Ipswich and East Suffolk, through the development and management of the Integrated Neighbourhood Teams, including the associated Connect. The posts will have joint accountability to Adult Social Care in Ipswich and East Suffolk (Suffolk County Council) and to East Suffolk and North East Essex Foundation Trust (ESNEFT).

Integrated Neighbourhood Teams bring health and social care services together to provide a single coordinated care response that is underpinned by prevention, self-care, early intervention, reablement and rehabilitation rather than longer term treatment and lifelong service dependency. The role will be a key player in building relationships within the Connect community.
