Operational Manager, Band 8b


Full Time: 37.50 hours per week

Bexley Care have been working on the development of a new service delivery model designing an innovative approach to integrating health and social care services with a remit to work differently and achieve positive outcomes for the adult population of Bexley. For our staff this will provide opportunities to work collaboratively with local partners, particularly primary care and to dissolve barriers and reduce duplication of work, improve shared systems, and enhance professional development.

This development has led to the creation of 3 Local Care Networks (LCN) each led by an Associate Director. Our new structure within each LCN includes an Operational Team Manager with overall management responsibility for providing services for mental health across Bexley.

We are looking to appoint to an Operational Manager with a background in Mental Health Care. You will need to demonstrate resilience in the face of change and an ability to develop a cohesive approach to service user need amongst a range of professionals.

You will also form part of the Mental Health leadership team working alongside operational and clinical leaders in shaping Oxleas Community Mental Health Services.

Through effective leadership and management, you would be responsible for the delivery of the Bexleycare Community Mental Health services in accordance with local and national policies, strategies, and regulatory and performance frameworks. You will need to have experience at a senior level in a complex environment, working across teams, systems and building relationships.
