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 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.

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic programme development manager to scope and deliver a range of high profile initiatives on some of the most pressing issues facing the NHS.  The initial focus will be delivering a pilot programme on quality improvement, based on a strategic partnership with the Health Foundation. Through a series of events, resources and action learning sets, this will share board level learning on how to embed a trust-wide approach and sustain the improvements made in response to COVID-19.  The post holder will also contribute to the continued expansion of our funded board development offer, with the opportunity over time to scope and deliver other programmes in response to member priorities.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate excellent programme management skills, as well as an understanding of the leadership challenges facing NHS boards.  The ability to lead project teams comprising staff from across the organisation will be critical to success.
