Birmingham City Council is focused around ensuring Birmingham is a great city for Children, Housing, Jobs and Skills and Health. Our aim for adults and older people living in the City is that they should be resilient, living independently whenever possible and exercise choice and control to enable them to live good quality lives and enjoy good health and well-being.

The Commissioning Team within Adults Social Care and Health has a key role to play in helping the Council to achieve this. There is a vacancy for a Commissioning Officer in our Intelligence and Analysis team and we would welcome applications from people with advanced Excel skills, and a track record in extracting, managing and presenting a range of data.

This is an exciting role and if successful you will get involved with some of the following key priority areas:

•Working with social care and hospital teams to ensure efficient transfers of care

•Analysing data from a range of organisations and partners to inform Commissioning activity and interventions to help ensure our citizens are receiving good quality services and to protect them from harm.

•Maintaining, extracting and interpreting complex and varied data sources, using data reporting tools

•Use available information sources to help drive performance and build an evidence base for all services across the Adult Social Care and Health directorate, resulting in improved outcomes for the citizens of Birmingham

A background in Social Care or Commissioning is not essential for this vacancy as we are looking for transferrable skills in analysis and communication with a variety of audiences.

Key skills needed will include the ability to communicate with a wide variety of parties, such as care providers, those in receipt of care, partner agencies (such as the Care Quality Commission and NHS colleagues) and other internal colleagues (such as the Safeguarding Team, social workers, senior managers and elected members).

The improvement of outcomes for citizens sits at the heart of our work and commissioning staff are required to secure the views of citizens and use a range of intelligence sources to underpin decision making and inform their work.

The Commissioning Officer will be required to support the delivery of designated projects and to provide support to a Senior Commissioning Officer. All of this will be done involving our citizens every step of the way, to ensure their experience and expertise are included in all the work that we do, and to ensure the vision for adult social care and health is delivered with them. This is an opportunity to really make a difference.

Right to work in the UK documentation will be fully checked for all applicants. All non UK and non EU applicants are required to apply for a Certificate of Sponsorship from Birmingham City Council and must be approved by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) before any employment offer can be confirmed.
