We are seeking to appoint four skilled, enthusiastic, and experienced Contracts officers to work as a member of the Market Management Team, part of the strategic commissioning team for Integrated Adult Social Care in Devon County Council.

• Work with colleagues who are passionate about improving the lives of people we work with in our communities.

• Be part of a strong, professional organisation and play an active role within a supportive team working alongside our provider market.

• Develop and lead robust contract management process and build positive relations within the market.

• Have access to attractive terms and conditions, including flexible working arrangements.
