Be the link between leading-edge medical software and an outstanding NHS Trust.
Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), is the largest combined acute and community trust in the UK, with over 23,000 staff that care for over million patients a year. We're embarking on an unprecedented clinical transformation programme that will revolutionise the way we work. We've partnered with a world-class medical software company to introduce Hive, a brand-new Electronic Patient Record (EPR) solution that will bring all our patient information into one easily accessible place and make our services more effective than ever before.
Hive is the largest initiative of its kind and is backed by a significant multi-million-pound investment. It's also an exciting opportunity to bring your expertise, join us at the beginning of our journey and develop through a challenging, complex project. With your help, we'll build on our leading initiatives and transform our services for the benefit of patients and staff alike.
As a Cross Applications Lead, you'll manage the cross application of our technical workstreams and make our transition to Hive a success. The role comes with considerable leadership responsibilities, as you'll manage several crucial workstreams including data migration, legacy system shut down and medical device integration as well as their respective subject matter experts.
You'll also be the escalation point for issues and dependency management across the workstreams and the wider Hive programme. As we meet the key milestones of the transition, you'll have created the project plans and processes that get us there, resolving issues and engaging with stakeholders of all levels.
Required skills and experience
We're looking for people with extensive experience in project management, clinical systems, technical requirements analysis and software releases. You'll also have advanced knowledge of hospital workflows and be able to effectively manage others and resolve project issues when they arise.
Exceptional leadership abilities, strong communication and collaborative skills and IT literacy are all essential. You'll also need a degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject, along with a relevant Master's qualification (or equivalent).
Join us at the forefront of change and you'll enjoy plenty of opportunities, together with all the benefits you can expect as an NHS employee. Alongside a competitive salary, you can expect a comprehensive benefits package including generous holiday entitlement, childcare support, flexible working and an NHS pension.
Personal development is important to us at MFT, and you'll also be able to move across different departments within the trust while taking advantage of quality training and learning schemes.
Diversity & Inclusion at MFT
At MFT, our ambition is to be the best place to work for individuals from every background. That's why we're committed to promoting equality of opportunity, celebrating diversity and eliminating any form of unlawful discrimination across our workforce. This way, we can create a truly inclusive environment and make sure our staff represent the communities we serve.
