Posted: 17 May 2017

oneSource provides shared back office support services for local government and other public services, enabling organisations to make significant savings in back office costs by cutting management costs, reducing duplication and making efficiency gains by re-engineering processes. Its vision is to be the “one source of innovative support and affordable quality to public services”.  

oneSource was originally developed for the London Boroughs of Havering and Newham, who estimate they will save over £14million by 2018-19 through sharing 22 different services and 1,350 staff. Thanks to the initial success of this, the London Borough of Bexley joined oneSource as part of the Finance Shared Service in April 2016.

They are currently recruiting a Strategic Business Partner to lead the business partnering function for Adults and Public Health. The role is pivotal in supporting all aspects of financial advice for the service across the 3 Councils, and will act as a partner to the service leadership teams. Key responsibilities will include:

  • Partnering with services to develop new delivery models to deliver significant cost savings and maximise the outcomes for residents;
  • Supporting the council’s leadership at all levels and developing a strategic and workable response to the financial challenges the council faces;
  • Working with the service leadership to develop, challenge and support service plans and project delivery and taking responsibility for managing and reporting on operational performance;
  • Reinforcing the delivery of a high level, professional customer service across the finance team.

The successful candidate must be a fully qualified accountant, with the ability to engage, influence and challenge non finance staff up to Member level. Previous experience of leading a business partnering team is essential as is exposure to adult social care.
