The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the health and social care sector, particularly in relation to individualised budgets. Good communication and presentation skills as well as high levels of literacy, numeracy and IT skills are essential. Knowledge of the Direct Payments scheme will be an advantage, although full training will be provided.
