Here at CQC, we make sure health and social care services provide people with effective, compassionate and high quality care and encourage services to make improvements. We monitor, inspect and regulate services to ensure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and we publish what we find to help people choose care. Join our committed team to help us deliver our strategic objectives and our vision for the future of quality regulation.
About the role
As an inspector you will be part of a vibrant team, you’ll enjoy a varied, challenging remit as you inspect and regulate an allocated portfolio of primary medical services to make sure they are safe, effective, responsive, caring and well led. The inspections typically require on-site activity, gathering evidence and working with partners to reach a shared judgement on the quality of services being provided. You’ll ensure all is in order by maintaining an audit trail of key records and information on a regular basis.
Primary care in England is dynamic and with changes in the NHS more care will be delivered in the community. We have the opportunity to influence that, regulating what is currently being delivered and driving up improvement where it is needed.
We require our inspectors to be highly autonomous and have the motivation and drive to apply initiative and discipline to your work. You will work as part of a geographically dispersed homebased team and as such we are looking for people who are self-driven and have the energy to manage the dynamic of life in a non-office based environment.
This role is challenging, interesting, and rewarding; inspectors are required to be confident and informed about what good care looks like.
With the ability to use analytical information and risk-based methodology to inform decision-making, you’ll ideally have a clinical or leadership background within a primary care setting, or health and social care, and experience of managing challenging scenarios and difficult conversations. Experience in being regulated would be advantageous although not essential.
You will be required to evaluate evidence, be computer literate, understand specialist terminology and interpret this ready for publication, be competent and confident and able to communicate at all levels. Most of all you’ll be enthusiastic, motivated and willing to lead by example in the achievement of personal, team and national goals.
