Communications and Engagement Manager

  • Permanent
  • Fareham

NHS South Eastern Hampshire CCG

Our team has recently taken on new responsibilities and challenges, so we are looking for new people to join us and help us to develop.

To help us meet our new challenges, we need to find a bright, motivated and innovative person who can join our communications and engagement team working across NHS Fareham and Gosport, Portsmouth, South Eastern Hampshire, and Isle of Wight CCGs.

You will play a key role in delivering all aspects of our work – providing the four CCGs with a high-quality, all-round communications and engagement function which includes delivering media relations, digital media solutions, stakeholder relations, internal communications, publications and patient and public engagement programmes. As a Band 7 manager you will be given plenty of opportunity to develop your project management skills and be expected to lead on a number of projects and also contribute fully to the wider work of our team.

We are looking for someone who is self-motivated, comfortable working independently and as part of a team, and who is able to work with colleagues from across the CCGs, and our partners, to develop and deliver effective communications and engagement support.

The successful applicant will be expected to be able to quickly take on all aspects of the role, but there will be scope for professional development. Although we need someone who can support us across our busy, varied and demanding agenda, it is likely that there will be scope for specialising in particular areas of our work.

Prior experience of working in a Communications and/or Engagement environment, and strong communication skills, are essential.

If you are interested in this opportunity and would like to talk to someone about the post, please call Elizabeth Kerwood or Nick Brooks on 023 9221 2442.

Please note the following before applying:

1. Closing date: we reserve the right to amend the closing date based upon the number of applications received. Vacancies attracting a high volume of applications may therefore close earlier than advertised.

2. Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Border Agency requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit UK Border Agency website.

3. Interviews: all shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a face-to-face interview.

4. Unsuccessful applications: if you have not been contacted within 3 weeks of your application, we regret that you will not have been offered an interview on this occasion.

5. Criminal records: due to the requirements of certain roles, a Disclosure and Barring System (DBS) disclosure must be obtained by the organisation. Please be aware that anyone who is included in the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) barred lists will commit an offence if they engage, or seek or offer to engage, in a regulated activity from which they are barred.

6. General: this post will be subject to review under the relevant NHS Terms and Conditions of Service.
