But we need to ensure that everything is in place to support our cutting-edge digital innovation - and this is where you come in. Join NHS Blood and Transplant and you’ll be treated as the expert, with the freedom to act on your ideas and use your influence and experience to help us deliver success. Your work will help us save and improve lives by meeting the needs of donors and matching life-giving organs and blood to those who desperately need them.


As Technical Co-ordinator, you’ll work across the Technology Services team, planning, co-ordinating and contributing to a variety of complex project activities across ICT. This will include securing and managing resource, monitoring and reporting progress and identifying any potential issues that need to be addressed. Representing the interests of Technology Services, you’ll act as a business improvement co-ordinator, working closely with other ICT directorates to develop and establish new processes. Your technical responsibilities will also include co-ordinating the preparation of designs and specifications, creating and updating project documentation including engineer notes, equipment schedules, and test and commissioning plans. You’ll also arrange and manage technical workshops and demonstrations.


You should be educated to postgraduate diploma level or have equivalent professional qualifications and relevant experience. Experienced in managing project workstreams and budgets, you should be able to build strong working relationships across multi-directorates and with internal and external stakeholders at senior management and operational level. Along with strong people and financial management skills you’ll need the ability to analyse, interpret and communicate complex technical information, to produce reports and make recommendations. Ideally, you’ll also have previous NHS experience and knowledge of NHS policy and procedures.


You may be required to work Irregular hours, including occasional evenings and weekends, and travel extensively (including overnight stays).


Your learning and development are crucial to us. When you join NHSBT, your manager will discuss your career aims and we’ll find the right opportunities to support your personal and professional growth.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

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.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
