£47,544 - £53,459 per annum plus Fringe HCAS

We are seeking a dedicated person to join our mental health commissioning team. You will be part of a friendly team with opportunities to gain a wide range of experience. The role is full time with a requirement to work flexibly across NHS Surrey Heartlands Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Surrey Heartlands is known as an ‘Integrated Care System’ – a more evolved partnership where health and local government are taking a collective responsibility for health and social care.

Through our unique devolution agreement, we will have greater control over budgets and accountability of the decisions we make locally giving us a real opportunity to maximise, benefits for local people. Our ground-breaking agreement outlines how partners will work together to improve the health outcomes of the 850,000 people living in Surrey Heartlands. It also means more local accountability for the spending of health and social care budgets.

It’s an exciting time to work in mental health commissioning with the National Health Service placing a high priority on increasing and improving mental health services through the NHS Long Term Plan; coupled with the Surrey Heartlands model, this is a rewarding place to work.


We are passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. We know through experience that different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative work environment that delivers better patient outcomes. We welcome all applications, especially those from underrepresented communities, including people with a disability, and those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.

We have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all applicants are treated fairly and consistently at every stage of the recruitment process, including the consideration of reasonable adjustments for people who have a disability.

As part of the organisation’s commitment to achieving equality of opportunity for all staff, Surrey Heartlands CCG will consider all requests for flexible working on hiring. For most roles, the following types of flexibility are usually possible: flexible hours, compressed hours, part-time hours and/or job-sharing, and homeworking.

Many of our staff work flexibly in many different ways. Please talk to us at interview about any flexible working arrangements you would prefer or require. While we may not be able to fully accommodate all requests, such requests will not be referenced during the interview scoring process, and we will fully consider and try to accommodate them for successful applicants.
