Human Resources
£45,753 - £51,668 per annum

Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is looking for a Programme Manager for a Race Equality Experience Project. This is a senior role in the People & OD Directorate.

Due to an administrative oversight, there was a short closing date when the role was initially advertised. We sincerely apologise for this and want to emphasise that this was not intentional. The Trust is committed to open, honest and inclusive recruitment. This role is extremely important to us and is part of a wider approach to supporting the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion agenda.

The Job Title has also been changed upon feedback and reflection, to make the title more reflective of the job purpose and inclusive of all groups.

Reporting to the Deputy Director of People and OD, the role will be responsible for the management of a project to improve race equality and experience for our colleagues and patients at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. They will undertake project management, conduct project research methodology, obtain budget support, and evaluate learning to ensure the work will be embedded into strategic future plans for improvement.

The postholder will regularly communicate and establish effective working relationships with a range of colleagues including the BAME & Ally Network Group (name under review) and the Board of Directors.

The successful candidate will have experience in project planning from conception to execution, sourcing and analysing complex data, have the ability to foster positive working relationships, and negotiate and educate race as a lived experience and its impact, and knowledge on the interrelationship of intersectionality.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of only three independent specialist paediatric hospitals in the country. We provide dedicated healthcare for children and young people across community, mental health and acute specialist settings. We are committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and improving equal opportunities between different groups, whether they are colleagues, patients or the public.

The Programme Manager role would make an exciting secondment opportunity or is being advertised as an 18-month fixed term role. We particularly would welcome applicants from underrepresented communities, including racial and ethnic groups.


Interviews will be held w/c 17th of May.


22.5 hours per week.
