This is an opportunity for a disabled person to work with the Risk, Intelligence & Professional Standards team at the Care Inspectorate on an Intelligence Project.
Accountable to: The Care Inspectorate
Contract: 35 hours per week for 12 weeks (part time hours will be considered on a job sharing basis, hours to be completed by end March 2018)
Closing Date: 13th November 2017 at 10am
The Care Inspectorate regulates and inspects care and social work in Scotland to make sure that services meet the right standards, and helps them improve where necessary. We work closely with other scrutiny and improvement bodies to check how well different organisations in local areas are working to support adults and children.
Our 600 staff work across Scotland, inspecting in the region of 14,000 registered care services. Our inspectors visit every care service we regulate. Higher risk services are inspected more often. Our inspectors talk to people using the service, staff and managers. They watch what happens in the service to help assess the quality of care people receive.
The Care Inspectorate works across early learning and childcare, children’s services, health and social care, social work, and community justice. With new Health and Social Care Standards published in June 2017, and changes in the governance of care, the Care Inspectorate is embarking on an ambitious programme to change our scrutiny approaches. This journey from compliance to collaboration is aimed at improving the experiences and outcomes for people everyone involved in care.
The purpose of the internship is to evaluate some of the intelligence tools (e.g. dashboards, scorecards, spread sheets, etc.) we currently maintain, to see what we might stop doing, and how we can improve some of them.
The intern will:
- Produce an appraisal of our current intelligence tools and an investigation into whether they are still valid (support will be provided.)
- Create efficiencies by recommending better intelligence tools and suggesting alternatives for more effective ways of gaining intelligence for the Care Inspectorate.
Key skills and experience would include:
- Ability to use key office software, especially email, MS word and MS excel.
- Ideally, previous experiences in an online survey package like Survey Monkey (although training could be provided).
- Ability to understand and record people’s views (this could be in person and could be via online surveys).
- Ability to collate and analyse a range of information and draw together conclusions and recommendations.
- Ability to write up and share findings.
