A Vacancy at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust.
Are you a Project Manager who is ready to develop your skills with an exciting new opportunity? We are looking for someone who can demonstrate their creativity and ability to put new ideas into practice.
There has never been a more exciting time to join Bristol Health Partners Academic Health Science Centre, a dynamic collaboration between the city region's universities, major health and care providers and commissioners, covering the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) area. The newly published NHS People Plan sets out ambitious transformational plans to improve workforce experiences, increase the supply of those working in health and care, and ensure race equality.
Our vision is to unite our excellence in healthcare provision, research and innovation, education and training to deliver healthier lives, through improved prevention of illness and disease and better integration of health and care services. We want our region to be known for:
• Equal and fair access, experience and outcome, by tackling health deprivation and inequalities;
• The excellence of the care we commission and provide, underpinned by cutting edge research and innovation, education and patient and public involvement.
In this role you will work with health and social care researchers, commissioners, policy makers and members of the public across the Bristol City region. You will collaborate with a range of organisations, including the NHS, universities, local authorities, and voluntary and community sector organisations.
Bristol Health Partners is seeking an individual who has a track record of setting and achieving targets and impact, to take on this varied and rewarding role in supporting our Health Integration Teams (HITs).
This is a 2 year fixed-term appointment and we may consider secondment applications for 6-24 months. To apply for the position as a secondment, you must secure agreement from your current line manager.
This is a 4 day per week role. However, applicants wishing to work full-time will also be considered.
The post will be based within the Bristol Health Partners core team and work specifically on providing effective Senior Project Management support to the Bristol Health Partners HITs. You will use your project management skills to ensure HITs
are managed effectively, progressing well against plans and reporting progress to the Bristol Health Partners Chief Operating Officer and others.
The post holder will be able to demonstrate significant Project Management knowledge/experience (PRINCE 2 or MSP qualifications are desirable) along with a proven track record of liaising effectively with a range of stakeholders across various organisations, including at very senior levels. You will also have experience of working in and directing cross-organisational and cross-functional project teams. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential.
We would be particularly interested to hear from you if you have experience of health and care project management, combined with an understanding of race equality and the wider EDI perspective.
The post holder will be responsible for managing HITs to the highest possible standards and will be expected to work under their own initiative, seeking guidance and advice where necessary.
There will be a requirement to work flexibly e.g. at various locations around Bristol
with occasional evening and overnight stays.
