Would you like to work for a dynamic organisation which seeks to empower local communities to secure improvements to health and social care services affecting over 300,000 residents of Enfield?

Healthwatch Enfield was established in 2013 to act as the statutory, independent consumer champion for health and social care services in the borough. We’re here to amplify the voices of local people and to help them navigate the complex systems of health and social care. Everything we say and do is informed by our connections with Enfield’s residents. A key focus of Healthwatch Enfield is on understanding the needs, experiences and concerns of people, who use services, so that we can speak out on their behalf in order to seek improvements in services. Although engagement is fundamental to the way Healthwatch Enfield works during the Coronavirus pandemic it is vital to ensure that all the disadvantaged groups are heard. New and creative methods of engagement are crucial and we want to focus on a project management approach to ensure we can deliver key messages from the community to stakeholders.

We aim to ensure that all those who plan and provide services in the borough listen to the voices and experiences of local people directly, or via Healthwatch Enfield, to shape high quality services that meet individuals’ needs.

Each year Healthwatch Enfield undertakes an extensive programme of work, which aims to have a positive impact for individuals, communities and the wider system.

The role of Project Manager /Engagement is pivotal to the work of Healthwatch Enfield. You will be responsible for maintaining the profile of Healthwatch Enfield in the London Borough of Enfield in order to reach new audiences and build relationships with the local communities.
