Young person in the workplace

Welcome to Stoke-on-Trent City Council

Welcome message from Cllr Abi Brown, Leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council

Do you want to work for an ambitious local authority that puts adult social care, health integration and wellbeing at the forefront of everything it does? Do you want to help make a difference and shape our service offering to empower our residents? If so, then we want to hear from you …

We are seeking a passionate and dynamic Director of Adult Social Care, Health Integration & Wellbeing, with a ‘can-do’ attitude to drive service improvements and care standards across the city.

Adult social care, health integration and wellbeing are part of the Council’s key priorities, so that we can help all our residents to live more independent and fulfilled lives.

As a city, we are the litmus test for the Government’s levelling up agenda and all services can benefit from the levelling up investment and positive change this will bring. It's therefore a very exciting time for Stoke-on-Trent and a great time to join the City Council.

Welcome message from Jon Rouse,
City Director of Stoke-on-Trent City Council

Jon Rouse


Welcome to the role of Director for Adult Social Care, Health Integration & Wellbeing here at Stoke-on-Trent City Council. We are delighted you are showing an interest in joining our senior leadership team as we move forward in our development of good and outstanding services.

So why join us here in Stoke-on-Trent? We have an ambitious programme for transforming the wider wellbeing of the city and its residents. There is a genuine energy and commitment throughout the organisation and with our partners to deliver improved outcomes for adult social care and population health.

Promoting health and wellbeing is one of the four principal objectives in our City Prospectus. The planning, vision and roadmap for adult social care improvement has been well developed and we are working successfully towards progressing those outcomes as part of an exciting and resourced three year transformation programme. That said, we recognise that there is still much more to do and that is where you can be part of our journey. We are looking for an experienced candidate with a passion for developing quality adult social & public health support services. We are looking for someone with a strong background in either the adult social care or public health system, or perhaps even both. We need someone to lead the Directorate in its delivery of the Council’s vision of Stronger Together, supporting all five key priorities, with a particular focus on supporting the city’s residents to fulfil their potential and supporting vulnerable people in our communities to live their lives well.

This role offers a unique opportunity to develop professionally and make a difference.
