The role holder must:

  • Be educated to Degree level or hold equivalent experience;
  • Have knowledge of patient and public involvement policy and practice;
  • Have experience of working with patients or members of the public to involve and engage;
  • Have experience of working collaboratively, influencing people from a wide range of professional backgrounds (for example academics, clinicians, patients and/or members of the public);
  • Have excellent organisational, time management and prioritisation skills with a high level of attention to detail whilst maintaining flexibility;
  • Have excellent written and verbal communication skills with an ability to present information to a variety of audiences in different formats;
  • Have a positive attitude with a friendly, supportive and approachable nature;
  • Value diversity and difference and operate with integrity, empathy, patience and openness.
