Your spotlight on local services

Recruiting: Projects and Outreach Officer


In this role you will gather the views and experiences of people who use NHS and social care by planning and delivering a programme of outreach and engagement activities.  For many people the Projects and Outreach Officer will be the first contact they have with Healthwatch Richmond so a key aspect of this role will be to promote the organisation by explaining what Healthwatch is and encouraging people to sign up to receive regular communications. 

You will work with the Chief Officer to identify trends from the community feedback you gather that require further investigation. Once agreed by the Board, the Projects and Outreach Officer will recruit and support a team of volunteers to undertake projects with the aim of developing an evidence base for how local services could or should improve. Our work is challenging and constantly evolving so the ability to pick-up new skills and approaches, adapt and find pragmatic solutions is essential. As part of a small charity the role will develop within a small team and experience a wide range of the organisation's work.
