This is an exciting opportunity to lead a local authority trading company. Southend Care Limited is one year old and we are looking for somebody to take the company forward.
Southend on Sea Borough Council are the single shareholder in the company and in 2017, transferred the Adult Care services delivered by the council to Southend Care Limited. The transition has been smooth and there will be opportunities to grow and develop the company. The Managing Director is a key member of the team and also a board member.
Approximately 220 staff transferred from the Council to deliver this £7m turnover adult social care business. Most of the company’s income is via a block contract with the Council and it is proposed that this contract runs initially for four years. There is also potential to develop new and different contracts.
Essentially, we need an enthusiastic and innovative Managing Director to drive our new business.
This is an exciting chance to be at the forefront of contemporary social care provision and I very much look forward to receiving your application.
Chairman, Southend Care Limited
