Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care
Flexible Location | Attractive Package
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England, making sure its health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, and high-quality care, as well as continually encouraging services to improve. The work the CQC does really matters and it has built a strong reputation as a credible regulator of health and social care providers.
Over the past five years, the CQC has radically transformed the way that it works, resulting in greater confidence in the organisation and its findings. However, the organisation is not standing still and its ambition for the next few years is a more targeted, responsive and collaborative approach to regulation so that more people receive high quality care.
The appointment of a new Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care will be critical to this ambition. The Chief Inspector will be responsible for the effective regulation of Adult Social Care in England; setting and enforcing national standards of care and securing the trust of the public in the activities, judgements and effectiveness of the CQC. As a senior leader in the organisation and member of the CQC Board, the Chief Inspector will also contribute to the CQC’s overall strategy, direction and the effective running of the organisation to ensure the CQC’s model meets the needs of a rapidly changing health and social care system.
This is a demanding, high-profile, public-facing, and politically sensitive role. A gifted communicator and natural leader, you will provide leadership to the CQC’s biggest directorate, with a dispersed workforce of c.1000 colleagues. You will inspire and drive cultural change within the CQC as well as across the sector for the benefit of people who use services. You will also work collaboratively with internal and external partners and above all, be committed to providing world-class regulation and positively promoting the CQC’s purpose.
This is an exciting time to join the CQC; the organisation is clear on its future strategy for 2021 and is looking to build on the strong reputation that it has developed. If this sounds exciting to you, we would like to hear from you.
