Live Well Wakefield Service Coordinator

We’ve got a brilliant opportunity available in the award-winning Live Well Wakefield team, as a Service Coordinator. If you’re passionate about helping local people to improve their health and wellbeing through personalised care initiatives, this is the role for you!

Live Well Wakefield is an established social prescribing and self-management service, offering person-centred advice to adults across the Wakefield District so they can access an extensive range of non-medical local options to improve their health, wellbeing, and independence.

You’ll be supporting a brilliant service, but also be part of a great team. In our latest staff survey, 100% of the team told us they enjoy working at Live Well Wakefield.


What does a Service Coordinator do?

  • Coordinators work closely with colleagues across primary care, voluntary and community organisations and statutory services, to build effective working relationships in order to promote and develop Live Well Wakefield and local provision. So excellent communication and relationship building skills are essential!
  • They are responsible for line management of a number of Social Prescribing Advisors and Link Workers, ensuring those colleagues are equipped with the skills, knowledge, and supervision necessary to allow them to succeed in, and enjoy their roles.
  • Coordinators also act as a specialist advisor to colleagues, offering social prescribing, and risk management advice to ensure our clients receive the best standard of care.
  • They support the planning of team workloads, and ensure effective caseload management, whilst ensuring operational strategies are in place, and reviewed regularly to support service delivery and development. This is a great opportunity to exercise creativity in planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating new and existing workstreams.


What are we looking for in our Service Coordinator?

  • A skilled, organised and solution-focused person
  • Management, leadership or supervisory experience
  • Experience of undertaking direct work with communities of interest, individuals, or groups to help improve health and wellbeing
  • Experience of planning, delivering, monitoring and evaluating workstreams
