Gloucestershire’s Integrated Brokerage Team is looking for a Commissioning Officer who will support the commissioning of placements in residential and nursing homes.

The post holder will work as part of a team of Commissioning Officers to manage and quality assure provision that meet the needs of vulnerable service users and will focus predominantly on one of our care home providers who we contract to provide almost half of our purchased care home beds.
