We are looking for an experienced Events Coordinator to support us to deliver a major two-day ADASS event, in partnership with a commercial partner, in September 2022.  The Leadership in Care summit will look to build on the strong foundations provided by the inaugural summit which took place in 2021.  This is an opportunity to work with a cutting-edge national organisation to deliver a genuinely innovative event and explore crucial issues relating to leadership in social care.


This is a vital time for adult social care, with critical work underway to recover from the pandemic, shape reform, respond to the next phase of personalised care and sustainable systems and ensure a renewed focus on delivering more care and support in people’s homes and communities. This event will play a key role in exploring what this means for neighbourhood, local and system leadership.

  • Working closely with a commercial partner
