The Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) is the regulator for 15 health and social care professions. Our purpose is to protect the public. We maintain a register of health and care professionals who meet our standards for training, professional skills, behaviour and health, and take action if their fitness to practise is called into question. The HCPC currently regulates around 360,000 professionals.
This is an excellent opportunity for an individual with strong management skills, who has significant experience of managing a team with case management and investigation responsibilities. The post-holder will have a sound understanding of professional regulation and the law in this area, and experience of monitoring/driving productivity whilst working within a framework of legislation and operational procedures. We are looking for a capable leader, who can maintain a highly motivated team through effective management and maintaining behaviours within the team that support the HCPC’s values.
The Case Team Manager of the Case Resolution & Preparation team will lead, motivate and manage a team responsible for the preparation and presentation of fitness to practise cases. This role will require the post-holder to oversee the management of cases that have been referred to the latter stage of the fitness to practise process, and to ensure that these are undertaken to a high standard. The post holder will also assist the Operational Manager with the day-to day management of the HCPC’s external legal provider.
In addition to overseeing this work, the post-holder will be responsible for the allocation of in-house presenting and managing the three new Presenting Officers recently appointed.
You will have significant experience of managing a team and resources, including demonstrable ability and understanding of performance management and coaching. You will have a high level of written English and verbal communication skills, and an ability to use your initiative to work effectively under pressure. Your strong communication skills will enable you to work effectively within a team and with your peers, to build and maintain positive relationships across a range of internal and external stakeholders.
You will be able to work closely with a range of people involved in fitness to practise cases (including our external legal services provider and the HCPC’s tribunal service), and have a strong understanding of regulation and experience of working with/interpreting legislation. This will be particularly important as you will be required to make sound, evidence based decisions about the HCPC’s position during Practice Committee hearings, and in advising Case Managers in relation to requests for instruction.
All HCPC employees enjoy generous benefits, including 30 days annual leave. You can also take advantage of interest-free season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme, our employee discounts on gym membership and a broad range of retail outlets and favourable consideration of flexible working. We are committed to workforce learning and development opportunities.
