Are you a good listener and communicator? Are you excited about talking to people in Gloucestershire about their experiences of using health and social care services? Are you passionate about working with diverse communities and making sure their voice is heard? If yes, you could be part of our team.

About Healthwatch Gloucestershire

We are the county’s independent health and social care champion. We believe that health and social care providers can best improve services by listening to people’s experiences, and we believe that everyone in society needs to be included in the conversation.

We listen to the issues that matter to local people and hear about their health and care experiences. As a statutory body, we raise issues and make recommendations to NHS leaders and other decision makers to improve standards of care. We can also help people find reliable and trustworthy information and advice.

The role

This is a varied and interesting role and no two days will be the same. You will engage with people across the county, raising awareness of our work and encouraging people to share their feedback to help improve local health and care services. You will build networks and productive relationships with voluntary and community sector organisations and service providers. You will develop and manage engagement and research projects and analyse and report on project findings. This role adds to our existing team and will focus on understanding how well health and care services join up in the ‘One Gloucestershire Integrated Care System’.

Who we are looking for

You will be a people person with excellent communications skills, able to connect and work with a wide range of communities and stakeholders. You will understand how to plan and deliver robust and impactful community research and engagement projects and analyse and report on your findings. You will be enthusiastic with a can-do attitude and will enjoy working as part of a small and dynamic team.
