Healthwatch has been set up across England to give people who use health and care services and local communities a strong voice in influencing decisions about health and social care services. Healthwatch York provides this service across the City of York Council area. We are proud to be part of York CVS, as one of a number of social action projects within the organisation.

Healthwatch York is a small organisation with a broad remit. Our job is to put people at the heart of health and social care in the city. Our success as a team depends on people trusting us to fulfil this role, and our staff team being flexible, co-operative and supportive of each other in meeting the demands and expectations upon us.

We are pleased to be recruiting a Volunteering & Engagement Officer. This is an exciting opportunity to use your people skills to keep our volunteers up to date with all our activities and make sure they can get involved in them. You will also support our engagement activities, working closely with other team members. You will help bring people together to understand what works and what doesn’t in health and social care locally.

Confident, outgoing and happy communicating face-to-face, by phone, by email and on social media, the successful candidate will love to listen and build real connections with people. You will need good IT skills, and a can-do attitude.

If you are up for the challenge and want to make sure what matters to people using health and care services is at the heart of future service design, we’d love to hear from you.
