About Digital Social Care
Digital technology helps care services spend more time caring. It helps the people we support keep control of their lives, and of their care. And in recent months, the need for information to be shared securely and efficiently between health and care services has become even more apparent. But there can be risks – for example how information is kept safe and secure, and what happens if a digital system fails.
This is a shared role across Digital Social Care (DSC) and Better Security, Better Care (BSBC).
DSC is run by social care providers for social care providers. It is a dedicated platform for providing advice and support to the sector on technology and data protection. BSBC is a support programme to help adult social care providers to store and share information safely through the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT). The DSPT is a free, online self-assessment for health and care providers to evaluate and improve their data and cyber security.
The BSBC programme supports the sector with resources hosted on DSC and assistance provided by local partners to help care providers complete the DSPT. It’s an ambitious programme which aims to have all Care Quality Comission-registered adult social care services completing the DSPT at least once a year. The programme is delivered by a diverse group of care sector organisations, including many local care associations, with colleagues from the NHS, the Association of Directors of Social Services and local councils also involved.
About you and the role
As Engagement Manager, you'll play a key role in ensuring the successful delivery of the DSC and BSBC programmes. You willprovide key insights and support to our national project team and Local Support Organisations to enable them to engage with their health, social care, digital and tech stakeholders, liaising with our partners and grantees and addressing all manner of different challenges. You'll manage programme-critical functions and will take an entrepreneurial approach to improving our stakeholder engagement and management. You'll report to the Programme Director and work closely with the Programme’s Communications Manager and Digital Social Care’s Project Manager. The role is fully remote but there will be some national travel and event attendance required.
Here’s a taste of what you’ll do:
· Stakeholder mapping. Taking the lead on developing, drafting and implementing a stakeholder mapping process.
