Digital Engagement Officer

Job Reference: 459-CCG-5473TW

NHS South Eastern Hampshire CCG
Engagement Officer
Oakley Road, Southampton
£30,401 - £37,267


An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Sustainability transformation Partnership to join the team as the Digital Engagement Officer.

The Digital Engagement Officer will play a pivotal role in the development of the Citizens’ Panel. The panel will provide a mechanism for gathering insight and feedback on health and care issues from a representative sample (around 3000) of the circa 1.8 million population of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The role will be working closely with partners, commissioning teams and engagement leads they will help develop the Citizens’ Panel during its first year. The role will include working with programme leads to develop survey content, writing reports and presenting feedback. The Engagement Officer will also have a remit to further support and develop our approach to online engagement across the system.


Our ambition

As a system, we want to go above and beyond our statutory obligations – to provide local people with real influence and input to services, moving towards a consistent co-design approach across all health and care organisations.

Our Partnership provides the perfect vehicle to help us bring about system change in the way we involve and engage people. We are now looking for an experienced engagement officer with ambition and passion to match our own, to help us kick-start these exciting changes.

The Partnership provides an opportunity to innovate and develop a more collaborative and consistent approach across the whole area in terms of how we involve local people in our decision making and development of our services
