We are actively promoting flexible working options, helping you to manage a work / life balance”.

The IM&T department at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust is looking to recruit an applications architect to join our expanding Enterprise Architecture function.

As one of the largest acute teaching hospital trusts in the country, we are using virtualisation, mobile and cloud based technologies to transform the delivery of IT to our user base comprising around 15,000 clinicians and administrative staff, 8000 PCs and over 3000 mobile devices.

It is an exciting time in healthcare IT and you will work across a range of projects to deliver our "eHospital" vision for UHL, that is to become a digital hospital by 2022. We aim to reduce or eliminate the use of paper across the hospitals by using technology to drive efficiencies, standardisation and enable the transformation of clinical services to reduce unwarranted clinical variation in practice and ultimately deliver better care to our patients. A three year programme of systems consolidation has just commenced and you will play a key role in ensuring data standards are defined and applied consistently across the estate.

As the enterprise architectural lead for the IT applications you will be responsible for setting direction and providing leadership to the IM&T department and wider organisation in relation to clinical and patient administrative applications.

As someone with a passion for IT applications you will be the organisation’s leading proponent for the management of clinical and patient administrative applications and interoperability across systems.

If you're a proactive and creative technologist with excellent interpersonal skills please get in touch.
