London Care Services (LCS) is a service of London Councils. LCS helps member local authorities to support looked-after children across London and the South East of England.
The core of LCS work is the annual fee negotiations with over 300 providers of residential and foster care. Agreed rates are then available to members through a centralised contract and a website which also includes information on social care services for looked after children and young people.
London Councils is seeking to appoint a Senior London Care Services Contracts Support Officer who will as key member of the Team, be responsible for undertaking the process of fee negotiation and contracting with a wide range of providers of foster and residential care.
London Councils represents the 32 boroughs and the City of London. We aim to get the best deal for Londoners and to ensure that London’s councils have the resources, freedoms and powers to do the best possible job for their residents and local businesses. We also run a number of services on behalf of the boroughs including the Freedom Pass, Taxicard and Health Emergency Badge.
