Delivery Manager

Digital Innovation and Transformation Team

Band 8b £54,764 rising to £63,862 after 5 years’ experience.

The NHS is one of the best healthcare systems in the world, but it is under extreme pressure to meet the demands of a growing, ageing population, and more people with complex and long-term conditions than ever before.

In Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) a new NHS organisation will be created for planning and delivering health and care for our population of 1.1m people, which will be the Integrated Care Board (ICB), this gives us the opportunity to build upon improvements already made and existing collaboration to do more to address long standing health inequalities that continue to exist across our system.

The ICB is committed to the transformation of our care using digital technologies to enhance experience and outcomes. As part of this commitment there are a significant number of digital transformations that positively impact all of the health and care partners creating capacity to support health and care partners in the up front analysis, strategy development and management of the digital aspects of the transformation programme of work.

A Digital Innovation and Transformation Team is to be created to undertake this work in LLR and initially requires a leader to establish and operationally manage a team of IT specialist roles. This role is the Delivery Manager.

If you have the passion and leadership skills to form and manage this team for the benefit of the whole of the population of LLR, then this role is for you.

Ideally you will have an existing track record of working in digital transformation or digital innovation working preferably within the health and care sector in the UK. You should have a good understanding of architectural principles, for both data and solutions, business analysis, cyber security, user research and barriers to the adoption of digital technologies in practitioners and the public alike. You should also be proficient in writing documents or giving presentation at a senior level for decision.

This role will be subject to hybrid working, the base is in Leicester but a level of home working and on-site meetings within LLR will be required where necessary. The role will initially be recruited to by the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and when the whole team is assembled will be subject to a transfer to the LLR ICB as an employer later in 2022.

No agencies please.
