Director, IPS Grow

We are looking for a Director to lead IPS Grow, a large-scale programme that is helping to dramatically scale up high-quality employment services for people with severe and enduring mental ill health,  people accessing drug and alcohol treatment services as well as building on the health led trials which will result in more services in primary care. The programme is currently undergoing a significant expansion to allow us to support the growth in IPS services around England. This will take the team from 12 to 21 people with the budget rising from around £1 million to £2 million per year. You will oversee a multi-functional team, including technical experts in the field, operational, product, data, and marketing specialists.

We are looking for an experienced leader with outstanding, team building, strategic management, collaboration and stakeholder management and operational delivery skills. You will be passionate about changing people’s lives for the better but with a strong business sense and operational focus.

We believe this role has huge potential to support the scale-up of the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model across the UK and enable many more people with severe and enduring mental ill health and people accessing drug and alcohol treatment services to enter paid employment and change their lives for the better.
