The Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health Trust with a focus on Training and Education alongside a full range of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Psychological Therapies. The Trust is committed to improving mental health and emotional wellbeing, believing that high quality mental health services should be available for all who need them. Our contribution is distinctive in the importance we attach to social experience at all stages of people’s lives, and our focus on psychological and developmental approaches to the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of mental ill health.

An exciting opportunity within busy, high-volume and friendly National Workforce Skills Development Unit awaits the right candidate. The Unit supports and facilitates the development of mental health and learning disabilities workforce while supporting the mental health and wellbeing of health and care workforce. In doing so, the Unit specifies, manages, and is accountable for national projects with a national focus on strategic workforce issues throughout the NHS in support of the NHS part of its Five Year Forward View.

Reporting to the Programme Operations Manager, you will be responsible for managing and administering a full range of project services and logistics to support delivery of projects on time and to the budget. This will include organising, compiling, and maintaining information and project documentation and planning and implementing information to ensure compliance with projects briefs. You will help to minimise cost and implementation risks, liaising with the team and diverse groups of stakeholders to ensure effective communication and governance.

A proven track record of delivering multiple projects and managing large disparate groups of internal and external stakeholders is essential. Knowledge of NHS and social care would be helpful. You will need to be able to work in a collaborative fashion and respond to different perspectives while taking a cross-organisational perspective. A flexible approach is essential to support the priorities that may alter within the projects life cycles. You will be required to respond quickly to changes in processes while suggesting ideas to improve service which means that the role may develop and change overtime according to the Unit’s demands. Any specific responsibilities will be agreed and set at review meetings. Our past-paced and supportive environment will offer you flexible working arrangements and opportunities for training and development.
