Neighbourhoods Voluntary Sector Programme Manager

The Voluntary Community & Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE) in the Hackney and City is looking for a dynamic, dedicated and ambitious programme manager to have a key role in the Neighbourhoods Programme and lead on the first pilot testing the VCSE structures within the Neighbourhoods model. We are looking for a multi-skilled professional with a strong dedication to the sector and keen to support and develop the local system, especially in relation to social determinants of health.

Neighbourhoods is an ambitious and transformational programme to re-organise how we, as an Integrated Commissioning and Care Partnership (ICC), deliver primary care, community health and social care services across City and Hackney.  We are developing 8 Neighbourhoods across City and Hackney.  Each Neighbourhood will look after a population of 30,000 to 50,000 people through integrated local health and social care services. The Neighbourhoods’ remit is both to meet local people’s needs and keep people healthy through pro-active and preventative interventions.

We are working to ensure that the VCSE input strategically to the ICC plans and that investment locally is built on the amazing assets we have in our community including community action, neighbourhood based VCSE organisations and borough wide VCSE organisations. The pilot will support the development of seamless working of these with transforming statutory provision.

The pilot is for one year with the long term aim to create a structure for Neighbourhood teams across sectors that support people, maximising the use of community and resident led action.
