Listen To Act
£50,000 (£62,000 fte)
Four days pw, permanent
London and hybrid working
Our mission is to listen to the experience of patients, residents and carers and bring about meaningful change in service provision for the communities we serve.
Under the former name of Healthwatch Central and West London we have spent over nine years championing what matters to residents, patients, and carers living in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster and we continue to deliver a successful Healthwatch contract in Enfield.
We have achieved significant and lasting impact in people's lives through meaningful engagement. Our well respected community research, and consistently high quality reporting has influenced the ways in which local providers have developed the delivery of health and adult social care services, addressing inequalities in access and outcome.
We are an organisation that is changing, adapting and seeking to have a greater impact for more people across a wider geographical area.
As we enter an exciting time of growth and development, building on our years of expertise and engagement with local communities and public services, we will be moving to a more commercial approach, diversifying our income, reducing our reliance on public sector procurement and growing our range of patient and public engagement services.
We are looking for an innovative new CEO, who can work with staff, volunteers and Trustees to shape the future of the organisation, secure income from a range of sources and generate positive outcomes for communities and service providers.
Ideally from a voluntary sector background, the new CEO will be an effective leader, with an understanding of income generation, experience of generating surpluses and able to operate commercially.
All of our work is founded in relationships, so the new CEO will need to be someone who is able to quickly build and sustain positive and effective working relationships with a range of stakeholders, including children and young people, older people, local community groups, service leads, and Councillors, Directors and senior management of local authorities and the NHS. The new CEO will take our work to the next level, raising awareness, increasing income and turning Listen To Act into the go to organisation for proper, effective patient and public engagement.
