We need a part-time Communications Officer!

If you are someone with strong communications skills and can communicate with people of all backgrounds, this role may be for you. You will raise the profile of the charity though campaigns across various platforms and venues, develop informative and effective content and draw on your strategic knowledge of different media platforms and branding principles.

This position requires excellent interpersonal skills to:

Healthwatch Lambeth

Healthwatch Lambeth is the independent champion for local people who need and use health and social care services. We believe that for health and social care to really work for people, the views and experiences of people who use services, and people who for various reasons struggle to access them, must be fully considered. Our role is to gather and make use of the widest range of views so that local voices are taken seriously by commissioners and services.

We work to make sure decisions about services take proper account of what’s really happening to people who need to benefit. Promoting equality and fairness and reducing the inequalities and discrimination some people experience in services is at the heart of our work.

We are a small, skilled team, who, along with a thriving network of at least 20 active volunteers, engage the public in innovative and effective ways and carry out high-quality social research.
