Healthcare Manager

Job Reference: 918-MH3731

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
Tissue Services NW Donation Team
£33,222 to £43,041 pa

For an inspirational supervisor or manager, this is a unique opportunity. You’ll lead a team that coordinates one of our national tissue retrieval services – services capable of transplanting 90 corneas each week. With your help, we’ll safely and efficiently collect and store tissues, comply with regulations, and make the most of these valuable gifts.


Your focus will be on a deceased tissue group, such as Ocular, Cardiac or Musculoskeletal. You’ll take charge of a six-strong team, develop their skills, observe their performance and help them meet targets and improve standards. Naturally, you’ll also be part of rotas – and play an active role in the service.


A BSc in a biological discipline (or equivalent) is essential. But while it would help to bring relevant NHS experience; this is a role that calls for genuine compassion and a meticulous approach. Proven leadership will count most.


Comfortable learning new systems and a natural mentor and communicator, you’ll enjoy the responsibility that comes with being the link between our retrieval teams and the National Referral Centre. It’s also important you can work irregular hours and have a clean driving licence.


At NHS Blood and Transplant, you can be sure of a fantastic working life. The Leeds team is part of a larger UK-wide operations department. There are lots of opportunities to develop new skills and fulfil your ambitions, all within a supportive and friendly environment.


But ultimately, the real reward is the work. Anyone in the country who needs a blood transfusion or a donation of tissue or an organ, relies on us. From recruiting both living and deceased donors to improving our expertise and processes, we’re on an exciting mission to save and improve even more lives. And that’s why we need your help.


This advert will close at midnight on 27th January 2019.


The interview date for this position will be week commencing 11th February 2019.
