  • Closing on: Thu 30/06/2022, 0:59 AM
  • Working Pattern: Full Time

The starting salary for this role is £45,734 per annum and is based on a 36 working hour week. 

This role is open to remote working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We're less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we'd welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you. 

People facing multiple disadvantage experience a combination of problems including homelessness, substance misuse, contact with the criminal justice system and mental ill health. They can sometimes fall through the gaps between services and systems, making it harder for them to address their problems and lead fulfilling lives.

As one of the Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) partnerships in England and also having successfully bid for the national Changing Futures fund Surrey is committed to drive forward whole-system change to achieve our goal of facilitating a shift to prevention for those experiencing multiple disadvantage.

The System Partnership Manager, will be one of two roles supported by the Surrey Adults Matter steering group, that will enable an expansion of the local approach supporting improved outcomes for people with complex homelessness, health and criminal justice needs. Managed within Public Health they will work closely with partners, peer mentors and existing services to provide oversight of the people’s whole journey through the system, able to identify barriers, challenge local systems and recognise gaps in service provision or the training needs of providers. Drawing on the work to support individuals supported through the SAM approach, the role will also engage strategically, working with professionals to challenge barriers to engagement of service users and improvement of outcomes.

This is an exciting opportunity to use experience and skills from frontline homelessness, health, criminal justice or drug service roles and bring about genuine change for vulnerable people and the services that support them. This is an ideal role for someone who has experience working or accessing homelessness, mental health or drug treatment services and who is looking for an opportunity to make strategic change.

You will be an excellent verbal and written communicator with a passion for solving problems. You will be confident challenging those around you to think differently and to recognise the value of working collaboratively as a joined up system of support services.

You will understand the difficulties faced by people who experience multiple and overlapping needs when they try to access health and housing support. You will be a strong advocate for asset-based and trauma-informed approaches to working with vulnerable people and you will have a good understanding of the ways that vulnerability is exacerbated by poverty, social inequality and isolation.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
