Be the link between leading-edge medical software and an outstanding NHS Trust.
Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), is the largest acute and community trust in the UK, with over 28,000 staff that care for over million patients a year. We’re embarking on an unprecedented clinical transformation programme that will revolutionise the way we work. We’ve partnered with a world-class medical software company to introduce Hive, a brand-new Electronic Patient Record (EPR) solution that will bring all our patient information into one easily accessible place and make our services more effective than ever before.
Hive is the largest initiative of its kind and is backed by a significant multi-million-pound investment. It’s also an exciting opportunity to bring your expertise, join us at the beginning of our journey and develop through a challenging, complex project. With your help, we’ll build on our leading initiatives and transform our services for the benefit of patients and staff alike.
As Change Lead, you’ll take charge of the development and delivery of change management projects to support the implementation of EPR across the Trust. You’ll lead and coordinate these projects across clinical and operational teams using sophisticated and polished transformation skills to embed service and cultural change.
Initiating and encouraging new ways of working across the organisation, you’ll support teams to achieve their goals by providing tools and techniques to deliver change in an effective and sustainable way.
We’ll look to you to ensure that a standardised project management approach is built into all aspects of the programme and that interdependencies are identified and proactively managed. Critically, you’ll engage with senior teams to design clinical and operational pathways while factoring in the impact of new technologies and new working environments.
Please note this is a fixed term opportunity to 31/3/23.
Required skills and experience
You’ll need impressive senior-level experience leading complex service transformation and change projects. As well as a history of working with diverse stakeholders from across multiple teams, services and organisations.
A track record of leading and managing complex change at pace and in high pressure environment is vital. As is experience of communicating highly complex, sensitive or contentious information to individuals and large groups.
We’re also looking for substantial transformation knowledge gained in a healthcare setting, and a sound appreciation of NHS strategy, policy and guidance. On a personal level, you’ll be an excellent communicator, motivator and multidisciplinary team-player.
Join us at the forefront of change and you’ll enjoy plenty of opportunities, together with all the benefits you can expect as an NHS employee. Alongside a competitive salary, you can expect a comprehensive benefits package including generous holiday entitlement, childcare support, flexible working and an NHS pension.
Personal development is important to us at MFT, and you’ll also be able to move across different departments within the trust while taking advantage of quality training and learning schemes.
