When thinking about what drives you every day in your job, what keeps you motivated and passionate about your work, what comes to mind? For 3000+ people at the CQC, we end each day knowing that we have made a difference to the lives of those most in need in our communities. We make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage care services to improve. We are looking for people who are caring, demonstrate integrity, and work well as part of a team, to join with us and share in this sense of achievement. If you would like to help us make a positive impact to health and social care within England, then read on.

Why this could be a great role for you

As a Children’s Services Inspector, you will be part of a highly skilled, specialist team; you’ll enjoy a varied remit as you inspect children’s health services in a number of single agency and multi-agency inspection programmes.

You will carry out a small number of regulatory inspections, however you will be predominantly responsible for leading on, and contributing to, national inspections. You’ll undertake on-site activity, analyse evidence, assess risks and produce high quality written reports, maintaining an audit trail of key records and information on a regular basis.

It’s a role with plenty of autonomy and team-working too, so you’ll need to be able to work successfully at all levels both internally and externally.

Of course, you will live with our vision, objectives and values in everything you do. It’s a challenging, unpredictable environment, so you’ll need to be flexible and willing to travel to a variety of locations and stay away from home on a regular basis. You will be based at home when not on inspections.

What you will bring…

With the ability to use analytical information and risk-based methodology to inform decision-making, you’ll ideally have leadership background within health services, with knowledge and skills in child safeguarding, children with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and the multi-agency landscape of children’s services. You will have experience of managing challenging scenarios and difficult conversations.

Computer literate and an excellent communicator, you’re confident at articulating coherent rationales for action, based on robust evidence.

You’ll come from a professional health or social care background, where you will have gained a thorough understanding of the needs of people who use these services.

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, home-based 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. 

So, if you’d like to join us as a Children’s Services Inspector, please apply via the button shown.
