You will be able to write creative, aspirational and meaningful submissions that reinforce our person-centred approach to supporting vulnerable adults to achieve positive outcomes.
You will be educated to degree level with a first class or 2:1 degree in a literate or relevant subject. A passion for writing and a genuine interest and awareness of health and social care policy/sector will be very useful.
