This is an exciting opportunity to join the Demand Management Programme (DMP) team in the West Suffolk area, to support the countywide Adult Community Services Demand Management Programme, which is focused on supporting people get the right service at the right time with the right impact to achieve the best outcomes for the people we support.  

This role offers you the opportunity to join a professional and enthusiastic team ensuring the provision of valued quality services to vulnerable adults across Suffolk.

At the present time during the Covid-19 pandemic you will be working from home.  However, your base, once restrictions are lifted, will be the West Suffolk House office in Bury St Edmunds.
