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

Can you help us transform our Adult Social Care services? Do you want to help lead and shape our services to empower our residents to live the fullest lives possible and contribute to our small but mighty city? If so, then we want to hear from you …

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

Adult Social Care is one of the Council’s key priorities and sits at the heart of the Council. We want to help all our residents and staff 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. This is an exciting time for Stoke-on-Trent and a great time to join the City Council. We want all residents in Stoke-on-Trent to have the opportunity to benefit from this investment, and this is where you come in, enabling people to live well and flourish.

Assistant Director of Adult Social Care

Peter Tomlin


Welcome to the role of Assistant Director of Adult Social Care 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 wellbeing and population health.

Supporting vulnerable people in our communities is one of our main priorities. As a key member of the Senior Management Team you will bring in ideas and ways to be able to help transform outcomes for vulnerable people in the city and help to protect vulnerable adults from neglect and harm. You will work closely with partners and lead on effective planning to meet the wide variety of challenges within the Directorate and to deliver successful outcomes to meet Partnership, Corporate, Directorate and Service priorities in respect of vulnerable adults. 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 someone with a strong background in Adult Social Care who can determine the best models of service delivery, across the division which delivers a high-quality customer experience, achieves high performance and contributes to the council’s ambitions to be a commercial council.

We need someone who is compassionate, caring and reliable at the same time to ensure that as far as possible people are supported in their own homes, services are local, easy to access and designed around the needs of the client, their families and carers, who are involved in their planning and review.

Assistant Director of Adult Social Care will also be able to promote equal opportunities with our communities and staff through personal example, open commitment and clear action; all supporting delivery of the Stronger Together vision and strategy for the city.

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

If you have what it takes to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Stoke-on-Trent then this new chapter awaits you. 

Be the change. Start your new journey and help us shape ours.
