Job Description

NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.

At the NHS, we are reminded every day of how important life is. As a flexible working friendly organisation, we want to be sure that you can work in a way that is best for us and for our patients, and for you. Speak to us about how we might be able to accommodate a flexible working arrangement whether that’s job share, part time or another flexible pattern. In addition, although the role advertised may have an ‘home’ office base indicated, we remain committed to supporting flexibility around workplace locations. If it works for the service, we will do our best to make it work for you.

Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.

We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.


As a Project Manager, the post-holder will support the Leadership and Learning team in delivery of the agreed work plan. Specifically, the post holder will support the team to ensure that the work programme is planned and managed effectively.

  • Ensure accurate and open communication and co-ordination with a range of organisations and individuals, researching and drafting correspondence and papers and ensuring the management of specific tasks, lead reporting and analysis across a range of specialties, functions and projects;
  • Support the continued development and administration of networks which are the responsibility of the Leadership & Learning Team e.g. STP/ICS Leaders; STP/ICS Clinical & Professional Leaders
  • Support the completion of all corporate business returns;
  • Draft content for publications as required, and support the development and collation of content, as well as design and further development of, the Integrated Care Learning Network
  • If required, help support the wider System Partnership team, to deliver similar tasks to above.
