Job description

About YOU:

We are seeking a part-time (4 days) Engagement Lead – Mental Health to ensure that we hear the views and experience of people with mental health needs and their carers/families in Lambeth.

As an experienced engagement professional, you will lead on successfully engaging working age adults with mental health needs and other stakeholders in Lambeth (and further afield) in the work of Healthwatch Lambeth.

You will need to understand how to communicate with and reach specific segments of our potential audience. You will be responsible for ensuring that the voice of the people and their family is heard and used to improve care and support they receive.

Managing some engagement events and experience gathering projects, you will have plenty of opportunity for face to face (suspended due to COVID 19, until further notice) and digital contact with people to raise awareness of our role and gather direct feedback about health and care service experiences.

This position is a key part of the Healthwatch Lambeth Team, alongside the Engagement Manager and Engagement Leads for older people and children and young people, and the Impact and Evaluation Lead.


Healthwatch Lambeth is an award-winning independent health and social care champion for local people. We work to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use health and social care services and to speak on their behalf. We focus on ensuring that everyone in Lambeth can get the support they need to live well.

We work to get services right for the future and in Lambeth that means that we pay attention to the impact of inequalities on the health and care outcomes for our different communities.

This is a part-time post (30 hours per week) with a salary of £32,000 pro rata (£25,599) per annum and 26 annual days entitlement (pro-rata). You will be based at home during the pandemic until it is safe to go back to our office in Brixton, London. There will be some local travel and evening work.

If you have queries or if you want to request the application pack, please email Olivia Nascimento, Business Administrator and Finance Officer.


If you have any questions about the role, please ring us Monday to Friday, 9am to 3.30pm.

Closing on Monday 19th July. 23:30pm.  Interviews will be held on 29th and 30th July 2021.


Please complete the application form and the Equal Opportunities form available on the CharityJob website and email them to us.

Please note that CVs will not be accepted for this role.

Interviews will be taking place via Zoom on 29th and 30th July 2021.
