ADASS is looking for three exceptional individuals to join our central team.

Do you want to join a diverse and exceptionally high performing and committed small team working analytically, practically and creatively within a strong value base? Are you able to respond to a fast-paced national agenda and enhance our ability to respond and to ensure a strong focus on what matters for working age disabled people, older people, carers and families?

The next twelve months are set to be amongst the most challenging that adult social care has ever faced.  We must continue to respond to the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, whilst shaping a better future by influencing the upcoming Spending Review and the wider reform debate. 

To help us maintain this twin focus over the next year we are looking to recruit to a number of temporary positions which will strengthen our administrative support and senior leadership capacity during this crucial period.  Could you play a leading role in helping us to respond to both current challenges and in shaping a better future?
