My client is ambitious for its young people. Best Start in Life is our public offer for families of 0-5 year olds and encompasses Childrens Centre, Health Visiting, childcare and early help delivery. Its aim is to best use our collective investment to deliver integrated services that help parents to be positive and confident, and ensure that children are healthy and are ready for the next stage in their life - becoming more independent and going to school.

Commissioning Manager - Best Start in Life, This role is the lead commissioner for Best Start in Life, and will continue to shape the offer with Head teachers, Childrens Centre Managers, health leaders, providers and early help colleagues. As this is a high profile initiative, the role will also be crucial in working with residents and Councillors to ensure that the offer is understood and reviewed to ensure that it meets the needs of the children, young people and families of Newham. This role is a real opportunity to work with a positive partnership of providers to help make a real difference.

You will be able to deliver leadership across the early years system, with the ability to develop productive partnerships with Head teachers, Health and Early Help partners. Your strategic ability to identify how services can work together to deliver improved outcomes for children aged 0-5 will also be a strength.

As you will manage a small team, your people management skills will be an important asset, and you will need to use your financial analysis and negotiation skills to ensure that the multi million pound budget is balanced during times of straightened public funding.
