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 individuals with strong decision-making skills, who have significant experience of applying guidance and policies to make appropriate and balanced decisions. The post-holders will have a sound understanding of professional regulation, and experience of providing comprehensive case directions and evaluations whilst working within a framework of legislation and operational procedures. We are looking for capable and effective communicators, who are able to explain complex decisions clearly both verbally and in writing.
The Senior Decision Makers in the Case Resolution and Preparation team evaluate and assess information received in the initial stages of our fitness to practise investigations to make sound decisions in line with our Threshold Policy. This role will require the post-holders to make high volumes of decisions autonomously, which stand up to scrutiny, and are of a high quality.
In addition to this work, the post-holders will be responsible for providing guidance and case direction to case management teams, to support the delivery of high quality and effective decision-making.
You will have significant experience of autonomous decision-making (preferably in a legal or regulatory environment), including demonstrable ability and understanding of applying legislation, guidance or policies, and making evidenced based decisions. 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 and assist colleagues by sharing and applying knowledge as required.
You will be able to demonstrate sound judgement, in circumstances where you will be required to analyse high volumes of case information. This will be particularly important as you will be required to make sound, evidence based decisions about the HCPC’s position when applying the Threshold Policy in written reports which will be sent to internal and external stakeholders.
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.
