Healthwatch Wigan and Leigh is the borough’s independent health and care champion. We exist to make sure that local health and social care services are shaped by the people who use them. We want to ensure that children and young people are listened to and heard by those responsible for the planning and delivery of local services.
We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Young Person’s Engagement Officer to develop our new Young Healthwatch project. You will recruit, train and support a team of volunteer young people, to design the project and engage with other children and young people through a peer-to-peer approach. It will be a varied and interesting job and no two days will be the same.
We’re looking for an experienced and enthusiastic people-person, with a can-do attitude, who will enjoy being part of a small and dynamic team.
