Job Description:

As the Senior Regulatory Engagement Manager (SREM), you will be responsible for delivering frontline regulation, working with registered providers to gain assurance of compliance with the regulatory standards.

You will lead planned and responsive engagement on the largest providers and on cases where there are serious or complex issues including where a registered provider’s regulatory grading has the potential of moving from compliant to non-compliant. As well as direct engagement, you will oversee, support and advise colleagues as they deliver a varied caseload of responsive and planned provider engagement.



As the successful candidate, you will have an understanding of the overall strategy, operations and key processes of registered providers or experience in areas of governance, risk management, service delivery or financial control.  You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills, with experience of managing relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders, as well as strong analytical evaluation skills, with the ability to exercise sound judgement. 

You will be able to evaluate how organisations apply principles of good governance and risk management and the risk environment in which registered providers operate.  You will also have experience of people and programme management, with the ability to develop and inspire your team.
