Diary Manager (to the directors)

Salary: From £26,500

Contract: Permanent

Location: London (Westminster) - currently working from home due to COVID-19. We encourage flexible working and therefore do not require you to work from the office full time.

Closing date: Noon Monday 24 January 2022

Interviews: Thursday 27 and Friday 28 January 2022


NHS Providers is the membership organisation for the NHS hospital, mental health, community and ambulance services that treat patients and service users in the NHS. We help those NHS foundation trusts and trusts to deliver high-quality, patient-focused care by enabling them to learn from each other, acting as their public voice and helping shape the system in which they operate. NHS Providers has all trusts in voluntary membership, collectively accounting for £92bn of annual expenditure and employing more than one million staff.


The purpose of this role is to provide an efficient and comprehensive diary management service to the director of policy and strategy, and the director of communications, working closely with their senior executive assistant (senior EA). This newly created role would be ideal for a well-organised and enthusiastic candidate who is looking for the next step in their business administration career. The post-holder will also work closely with other diary managers and senior EAs in the chair and chief executive’s, and directors’, offices - and will be a key member of a busy, but collaborative, executive support team (EST).


The successful candidate must have relevant experience providing administrative support at a senior level. They must have experience of working with senior stakeholders and the proven ability to prioritise a busy workload. They must have experience of complex diary management, planning travel itineraries, working with confidential information and documents, providing excellent levels of customer care, and servicing meetings. Experience of working within a membership organisation or the healthcare sector is desirable, but not essential.


All NHS Providers staff are currently working from home. However, we are planning a phased return to our offices in Westminster, in line with national guidelines. In the longer term, it is anticipated that the post-holder for this role will – like others in the organisation – have the option to work from home on some days, if they prefer (depending on business need and subject to agreement with their line manager).
