Healthwatch Cornwall gives individuals and communities a voice and enables them to both influence and challenge how services are provided in their area.

We also aim to raise awareness among commissioners, providers and other agencies about the importance of engaging with communities in their discussions and decision-making on health and social care issues. 

We currently have a vacancy for an Outreach and Engagement Officer based in Truro, but working across Cornwall so a car owner/driver is essential.

As part of a small outreach team, you will work 21 hours per week on a salary of £23,513 per annum (£14,108 pro rata). This is a fixed term contract for six months from date of employment.


We are seeking a highly motivated individual to work with our other Outreach and Engagement Officers to manage, co-ordinate and deliver a community outreach plan which involves promoting Healthwatch Cornwall, and organising and attending community outreach activity at events throughout Cornwall. You will work with and support a number of volunteers as well as contributing to the wider operational team.

You should have highly developed interpersonal skills together with flexibility, attention to detail and the drive to see tasks through to completion.
