East Coast Community Healthcare CIC

£24,907 to £30,615

East Coast Community Healthcare CIC (ECCH) is an expanding and exciting social enterprise and employer in the East Anglian region. We provide a range of NHS, community health and social care services across Norfolk and Waveney.

Our purpose: Building Healthy Communities by delivering high quality, professionally led and innovative services.

ECCH is passionate about its cultural development programme, called Evolve, which has enabled us to build an 'intentional culture' within ECCH to help us meet our future challenges and be the best we can be. The aim of the Evolve programme is for all staff to feel a sense of connection across ECCH and share in the collective achievement of our goals. Evolve is based on a set of four signature behaviours that underpin how we do things in order to achieve our purpose:

We Listen, We Learn, We Lead | Work Together, Achieve Together | My Accountability, My Responsibility | Be Cost Conscious, Respect Our Resources

All staff are expected to positively demonstrate these behaviours in the workplace. With our staff engaging and participating in the Evolve programme we have created a culture that we all want to work in and which, we believe, benefits our patients, service users, our partners and communities.
