We are looking for an outstanding leader to become the new Chief Executive of Healthwatch Lambeth. The successful candidate will join not only an excellent and highly respected local organisation but an effective and committed borough partnership with strong relationships across statutory and voluntary organisations including with our main commissioner Lambeth Council. 

The Chief Executive will work with the Board of Trustees to lead and further develop the organisation so that Healthwatch Lambeth:

Externally, the Chief Executive is responsible for excellence in public engagement and further developing the strong and influential relationships we have with local and national stakeholders.

The successful candidate will be an experienced and empathetic leader who will inspire and empower others.
