Job Details


Is a national membership charity of every Director of Adult Social Services in England, their direct reports and their Principal Social Workers. We are a leadership organisation and are seeking a Chief Executive to play a key, visible leadership role. We exist to advocate for good social policy for all and to share good practice to that end. We want to ensure that people who draw on care and support are able to live good, fulfilling lives.

A unique opportunity to job-share now exists for someone with a passion for social work and social care. The successful candidate will understand how policy is formed and how it is delivered. They will represent the Association in the media and across government. They will be able to engage ADASS members, the public, people needing care and support and with a full range of national partners.

They will need to be collaborative, inspiring and resilient, working with an exceptionally committed Trustee Board and excellent staff team, creating an impact that far exceeds its size.

The appointee will be well supported by the job share partner and Trustees in this offer for an average of three days a week (to allow for good handover and communications). Whilst chemistry with the job share partner is key, we are particularly looking for someone with:
