The Sussex Commissioners are an equal opportunities employer, and our workforce is currently under-represented from people from Black and Minority Ethnic and disabled communities. We would welcome applications from people from these communities as our ambition is that our workforce is fully reflective of the communities that we serve. Sussex CCGs are signed up to the disability confident scheme and we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.

Sussex CCGs are seeking to recruit a Programme Manager with experience of workforce development/planning and programme management.

The Primary Care Senior Workforce Programme Manager will be responsible for managing the central Sussex Primary Care Workforce team to gather, analyse and produce data to identify the Sussex wide primary care workforce future needs and to project manage, co-ordinate and align the various local initiatives to maximise the use of resource, reduce variation and improve quality.

This is a new team and will work as part of the Sussex wide Primary Care Directorate, working with the Sussex Primary Care Training Hub, which reports into the Sussex Health and Care Partnership (HCP), Local Workforce Action Board (LWAB) and the Sussex Primary Care Transformation Board.

The post holder will ensure that a range of workforce projects already commissioned from transformation funding are delivered and evaluated. You will be strengthening the links with the Primary Care Networks and their leads and will be supporting network level workforce development.

The post holder will need to have some senior management level experience, and to have experience of workforce planning and development. Significant experience of successful programme/project management experience within a health or social care environment is also an essential requirement.

If you are able to travel around the patch and interested in a stimulating and engaging challenge we would love to hear from you. This role is a fixed term for 12 months.
