Job Reference: 918-IX4960

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
Solutions Delivery
Filton, Bristol
£37,570 to £43,772

Technology will set you free

Technology roles with this level of autonomy and impact are very hard to find. Join NHS Blood and Transplant as a Digital Service Engineer and you’ll be treated as the expert – with the freedom to act on your ideas, and use cutting-edge technology and innovative tools to deliver success your way. And all with the knowledge that what you’re doing is helping us save and improve lives by meeting the needs of donors and matching life-giving organs and blood to those who desperately need them.

Joining our new Digital Delivery team, you’ll play a vital role owning and managing the technical and service aspects of our digital services, making them impressive and effective for patients, clinicians, scientists, researchers and donors.

Working with talented product owners, customers and suppliers, you’ll be at the forefront of innovative and impactful service design, and managing the transition from delivery to business-as-usual.

We’ll look to you to:

  • manage and communicate with customers, suppliers and stakeholders, ensuring ICT and other communities are closely engaged on key topics
  • be a key contributor to best practice and fit-for-purpose service design activities
  • ensure service users are set up to effectively support and maintain Digital Services
  • take 3rd/4th line support when needed

To really make your mark here, you’ll need impressive experience managing full-service management lifecycles, proven ability to present complex (occasionally contentious) information to technical and non-technical audiences, and a background in digital service design & transition. A thorough understanding of modern digital technologies, issues and techniques is key, as is a track record using project and programme management methods, including PRINCE 2. And your personal skills are just a vital. We’re looking for a natural team-player with excellent communication skills, high professional standards and an unwavering commitment to customer service.

In return, you can look forward to excellent development opportunities and rewards. Our Shine programme covers a wide variety of activities, supporting your personal and professional growth, including leadership skills and management techniques. You’ll also have access to a wealth of impressive benefits, including generous annual leave, an NHS pension, flexible working and childcare vouchers.

The closing date for applications is midnight on the evening of Wednesday 4th December, interviews are anticipated to be held in the week commencing 9th December, subject to confirmation.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) offers a dynamic and friendly working environment where teamwork is highly valued. Personal development is also considered a priority and is supported through extensive training and development opportunities open to all employees.

We’re an inclusive organisation that reflects the diverse communities we work with and positively encourage applications from all sectors of the community.

Together we'll save and improve more lives than ever

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.
