We are recruiting!

A fabulous opportunity for someone with Project Management experience to join our great team at Healthwatch Cornwall

Are you passionate about how health and social care services are delivered in Cornwall?   If you believe that the voice of service users has a vital role to play in shaping how services are delivered and can improve, think about what you could achieve through this role.

Healthwatch Cornwall is an independent, publicly funded organisation with statutory duties and remit to ensure health and social care services in Cornwall are the best they can be. 

Accessibility

We are keen to ensure that our staff are representative of all sections of the community and the people of Cornwall, and we especially welcome applications from those from a black and minority ethnic background, those with a physical disability or are neuro-diverse, and working age people as we are currently under-represented in these areas.

Our offices have disabled toilet facilities, shared office space and a meeting room on the ground floor but we recognise the entrance is limiting for those who require wheelchair access.  As we are now operating in a hybrid working environment, we are happy to offer a combination of home working / meeting face to face / team meetings in more suitable accessible venues.
