Associate Consultant

Consultancy and software SME looking for new fully-remote team member to help us tackle the challenges faced by the health and social care sector.

Who we are

We are a consultancy and software SME working in health and social care. Our mission is to improve healthcare quality, value for money and market sustainability.

To achieve our mission, we develop collaborative commissioning solutions underpinned by bespoke data analysis and software. Our solutions improve efficiency, support information sharing and provide greater care quality assurance.

We collaborate with our clients to understand their requirements and deliver innovative solutions to complex problems.

We care about our team and support the on-going growth and professional development of every team member. This is one of our core values.

How we work

We are a fully remote team. We combine our remote working with London-based in-person social events and workshops. Our virtual daily stand-up meetings each morning help keep us connected.

We are a small, diverse and tight-knit team working closely together regardless of role, experience or seniority. Our flat organisational structure gives everyone opportunities to shape the way we work. The diversity of perspectives makes us more creative, innovative and effective. We actively create opportunities to share learning and grow collectively. We value collaboration and partnership working, and this extends beyond our team to our clients and stakeholders.

CarePulse is the software platform we have designed and built to deliver our services. We develop CarePulse through continuous, agile, co-development with our clients and partners.
