Job description

Advocacy and Healthwatch are powerful allies for change. As one of the UK’s largest providers of advocacy, advocacy-related and Healthwatch services, this new role offers an exciting opportunity to make a real difference, putting people at the heart of what we do.

Advocacy allows Individuals to have their voices heard and respected when decisions are being made about their health and social care. It raises awareness of people’s rights and entitlements and empowers people to advocate for themselves or to speak up for them when they can’t.

Healthwatch uses feedback from the public to better understand the issues facing the NHS and other care providers and make sure people’s experiences improve health and care for everyone – locally and nationally. Healthwatch can also help people to get the information they need to make the right personal choices to get the support they deserve. You can find out more about what we do on our website.

About the role

The Head of Operations will have oversight of all service delivery to ensure people are at the heart of what we do, and we are the best we can be, through:

  • Setting and reaching high standards
  • Promoting collective and personal responsibility
  • Making best practice happen
  • Championing continuous improvement.

What we need from you

We are looking for an experienced leader and manager who is skilled in building and developing effective relationships with colleagues, particularly with a workforce which is geographically dispersed. Looking for a chance to make a real impact, you will have the desire and passion to drive forward the mission and values of The Advocacy People.

As this role is home based with travel, you must have access to a stable home broadband service, good mobile signal, a full driving licence and your own transport as well as flexibility with working hours.

What happens next

If you’d like to know more, the full job description and information about how to apply can be found on our website 

Anyone joining our team is subject to The Advocacy People’s Safer Recruitment pre-appointment checks. Applicants invited to interview will need to bring evidence (photographic where possible) of their right to work in the UK and new employee start dates will only be confirmed once other mandatory checks, including the appropriate DBS clearance and 2 satisfactory references, one of which will need to be from your most recent or current employer, have been received.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Closing Date: 9am on 5 August 2024

Interview Date: 20 August 2024

Interview venue: MS Teams
