The Role

We are looking to recruit a highly enthusiastic, knowledgeable and motivated individual to lead our new West Midlands Gambling Harms Service based in Stoke-on-trent and also take the lead role in developing Inclusion’s approach to addressing the causes created by problematic gambling regionally and nationally.

The post offers an exciting opportunity to make a significant difference to residents in West Midlands by managing the first NHS service of its type in this area with the added benefit of taking a leading role in developing Inclusion’s response but also the ever developing national NHS response to the provision of gambling services nationwide. A key element of this role will be championing service user involvement in all aspects of the service delivery.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to use their specialist knowledge of gambling service provision, building networks and management experience to shape the development of the clinic and respond to the national policy agenda related to gambling and its harms.

Working as a senior Inclusion manager, the post holder will engage in a range of strategic Inclusion/MPFT projects.

The Organisation:

Inclusion aims to combine public service values, which drive the most progressive elements within the NHS, with the commitment to tackling social exclusion shown by the best of the voluntary sector. We deliver a range of both criminal justice and community based Forensic, Mental Health, Substance Misuse, Sexual Health, Problem Gambling and IAPT Services. We are part of Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust which provides physical and mental health, learning disabilities and adult social care services in Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and other parts of England.
