  • You will have a good understanding of health and social care services and of the community and voluntary sectors. You will understand the influence these services can have on improving a client’s health and wellbeing and possess the skills to create rapport, influence positively and support clients to identify and achieve personal goals.
  • You will be educated to degree level or have at least 2 years’ experience working in a health, social care or community development role.
