If successful you will be responsible for ensuring CQC, information governance and GDPR requirements are met, and also monitoring compliance with requirements for NHS contracts. Staff management will also be a key part of your role, including ensuring employment check standards are met for new members of staff.

Training and support will be be given to the successful candidate however you will need to be able to demonstrate the following to be considered-

  • Team leadership skills
  • Firm, but empathetic approach
  • Excellent written English
  • Excellent communication skills
  • IT competent - Including good Word, Excel, PowerPoint skills

  • Process Management
  • Ability to pay high attention to detail
  • Project management experience
  • Proactive and highly motivated with the ability to set an excellent example to staff

The role will be full time (40 hours per week) and will involve covering some evenings and Saturday mornings on a rota basis.
