Sellick Partnership is delighted to be working in partnership with a large Governance and Scrutiny Team that is based within a local authority. This client is seeking a Scrutiny Officer to join their sizable team. This role is ideal for those seeking policy and scrutiny based work with a proven track record.

The ideal candidate will have experience working as a scrutiny officer, or a similar support role with work focused on public health and scrutiny. Previous local authority experience would be preferential, but not essential if you have worked in a support role providing support to health policy professionals. Experience in any of the following areas would be beneficial:

  • Governance
  • Policy briefings
  • Health policy related work
  • Scrutiny

The role is quite technical in nature and there is lots of liaison with various internal senior stakeholders and NHS clients. On a daily basis you will be working as part of a close team, undertaking tasks such as arranging meetings, clerking meetings, conducting research in relation to policy and scrutiny, and liaising with stakeholders. The successful candidate will undertake research and provide briefings on a wide range of topics related to health scrutiny. You will be able to collate, analyse and interpret information for the purposes of supporting policy development. You must be able to effectively summarise and present to the team and Members.

Evening meetings are not part of this role and the client can offer remote working. You will have the advantage of being able to assist in surveys, consultations, questionnaires to support the Scrutiny Meetings.
