If, like us, you care about inequalities in health and social care and would like to play an active role in being an ally to all those unheard or unrepresented at the heart of health and social care decision-making, we love to hear from you.

This is an exciting new post at HWNN at a time when the whole team is embracing new and innovative ways of working for HWNN to be the best it can be for our community & health and social care partners. You will be expected to promote and amplify the work of HWNN among community groups and partners while listening to and bringing in their concerns for HWNN to act upon them as appropriate.

You will be motivated, passionate, organised and a proactive communicator, with a track record of working in a community setting or working with communities among other partners. The role will require dynamic working which embraces the vision and values of HWNN in delivering for our communities, scrutinising the work of our health and social care commissioners and providers, and making a difference for our public and patients. You will be a self-starter with extensive experience in community work and partnership building who is at ease with leading and working with volunteers.
