The role will provide high quality project and administrative support including information and analysis to support delivery of the programme’s objectives. It will require the post holder to work flexibly at both a service line level within the clinical divisions and with corporate teams, particularly within the clinical governance directorate, depending on identified priorities and support required across the organisation

You will need to be highly organised, excellent at working with a range of clinical and non-clinical staff with strong data handling and analytical skills to provide timely and effective project support and reporting. You will also need to develop support tools, templates and administrative support structures to inform the operational processes necessary to underpin high quality clinical governance systems.

Applicants require a degree level education and/or equivalent proven working experience in project management or complex administrative settings and strong problem-solving skills and the ability to think laterally and take the initiative within the context of project delivery requirements.

The role will report to the Associate Director of Quality Governance within Clinical Governance directorate for line management purposes, with strong links to other members of the Project team and senior management within the directorate. It provides an excellent opportunity to enhance your skills and knowledge across a broad portfolio of subjects and to help shape the future delivery of strong clinical governance within the Trust.
