This is an ideal opportunity for anyone looking to work in the health and social care environment, whether you are new to us, looking to change careers, recently graduated or have already worked in the sector.
We are also currently working remotely and can offer a variety of remote work and office work as offices in North Yorkshire begin to reopen.
Current brokerage hours are Monday to Sunday: 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is a requirement to work weekends, for which an additional allowance is currently payable.
At this exciting time, we are looking for permanent brokers to join our department who are part of our onboarding team, part of our health and adult services directorate. The integration team works across the health and social care system to improve outcomes for people, working closely with internal and external partners.
Our Health and Adult Services Branch is an exciting and friendly place to work, committed to providing services to its local community and providing opportunities for our local residents. We are proud of our successes as a leading provider of care services and are consistently listed among the top performing county councils in the country.
You would join us at an extremely difficult and crucial time for the development of North Yorkshire and County Council. We continue to respond to the Covid pandemic and advance our work with our partners to develop a distinct program of public health and social care for adults. This aims to help more people live longer, healthier and independent lives.
The Brokerage Service is an established county-wide team responsible for sourcing care packages/placements to meet assessed health and social care needs for adults in North Yorkshire. As a broker, you will play a critical role in developing and updating information on local care providers and sourcing care packages, which will include executing contracts and associated financial and administrative tasks.
Brokers work closely with healthcare colleagues to support safe hospital discharges for all NYCC residents. It places huge demands on the brokerage service, so time management skills, the ability to set priorities, use your own initiative and manage your workload effectively will be essential.
The ability to work with spreadsheets and customer databases and quickly assimilate numbers and information will be fundamental. As a team, we are committed to providing an excellent level of customer service to internal and external customers and you will play a key role in ensuring this is maintained.
In return, we are committed to providing quality supervision, support and personal development to our employees. As an authority, we offer generous annual leave and access to the local government pension plan as well as our Everybody Benefits plan. We also offer a flexible leave policy.
