Plymouth Complex Needs Alliance Manager

Salary: negotiable based on experience

Expressions of Interest are invited for a secondment to Harbour for the post of Plymouth Complex Needs Alliance Manager. The Plymouth Complex Needs Alliance (referred to as ‘The Plymouth Alliance’ or ‘TPA’) has been formed to bring together service providers across homelessness, housing and substance use.

Collectively TPA will provide a suite of integrated services that form a more coherent, coordinated and person-centred system than those previously in place, with the key aims of:

  • enabling people to make positive changes to improve their health & well-being,
  • preventing or delaying the need for statutory interventions,
  • supporting the movement of resources from crisis support to prevention and early intervention.

The individual contracts for all these commissioned services are being brought into one jointly commissioned system. TPA partners will therefore work together to plan and provide this emerging system, requiring the post of an Alliance Manager to lead on key activity on their behalf.

The Alliance Manager is, in effect, a senior Operations Director equivalent role, working on behalf of all partners in the Alliance, and will lead on implementation and achievement of the overall delivery plan.

The initial period of secondment will be from January-March 2019, with an extension for two years contingent on award of contract. Interested applicants will need to have agreement in place from their current employer to undertake a secondment.
