Help change the lives of vulnerable people in a high-profile London borough.
At the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we are focused on putting our residents and local businesses at the heart of every decision. From the policy decisions that we're making through to the services that we’re delivering, it’s vital that we put the needs of our community first. We want to give everyone a great quality of life, with access to a comfortable home, sustainable and desirable employment options, and the chance to live and work in a healthy and safe environment. And our Adult Social Care department plays a vital part in achieving these goals.
Joining our supportive, highly experienced team in the heart of London, you’ll deliver customer engagement activities on behalf of our adult social care services. In doing so, you’ll be shaping our service for the better and helping us maintain consistently high standards of care for vulnerable people.
The role has a varied and challenging workload. This includes handling queries about our complaints procedure, preparing complaints statements, processing feedback on our systems and collaborating with Investigating Officers. You’ll also assist with risk assessments and advise managers on the implications of risk for complainants and our council.
The key aim of the role is to deliver a sensitive, high-quality customer service for anyone who wants to know about our complaints procedures. But just as much, you’ll be helping us progress complex cases, collaborating with borough legal teams, information governance teams and corporate complaints teams. It’s a chance to gain a real overview of our service while building the skills to take your career wherever you like.
