The NHS is changing. More emphasis on community-based care means there's never been a better time to join us.

The CQC has rated us 'outstanding' and says that our colleagues feel supported, valued and respected, with high levels of staff and patient satisfaction.

Our vision is to deliver excellent local services which improve the health of our communities. To do this we need outstanding people who share our values (CARE). CARE stands for:
  • Compassionate
  • Aspirational
  • Responsive
  • Excellent

It's been a year like no other as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and KCHFT is leading on coordinating the mass vaccination centres in Kent & Medway, working with all of our partners in Health & Social Care. The Workforce, Information & Systems team are looking for a Senior Workforce Advisor to support the e-Rostering/Workforce lead in managing the Vaccination 'Business as usual' service.

We are part of an 'outstanding' trust, as rated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in July 2019. Our organisation values its people - recognising our workforce is our most important asset. We are also a key player in the newly emerging Kent and Medway Integrated Care System.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Workforce Team as a Senior Workforce Advisor on a 6 month fixed term contract basis. We are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative individual to support in the resolution in the many COVID queries from the staff working in one of our 5 mass vaccination centres. The role will involve responding to the complex pay queries for bank staff, roster requirement and shift amendments, processing DBS renewals, resolving queries relating to EASY expenses and managing the email inboxes specifically set up to support the COVID vaccination response to ensure timely resolution of issues/queries. The successful candidate will need the ability to build effective relationships with a number of stakeholders, such as the wider Workforce team, payroll and managers at the COVID hubs.

It is an essential requirement that the post holder will have experience of using ESR and HealthRoster.

We are seeking someone who can problem solve with a positive mind-set toward continuous improvement. Attention to detail and a "can do" attitude are essential attributes, as well as effective communication skills, front-line customer service and the ability to prioritise and organise workload with competing priorities. If you have the skills described and wish to work in a friendly, supportive and dynamic team, we look forward to hearing from you.

Interviews to take place on the 11th May 2021.

Please note the role will be based from home with some occasional travel to one of the hubs, if required.
