NHS England leads the NHS in England, setting the priorities and direction of the NHS and informing the national debate to improve health and care. We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations and want everyone to have greater control of their health and wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.

NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for their spending. Our work involves the commissioning of health care services in England, and we support local health services that are led by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). We have devised and are delivering a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View.

Cancer Programme Manager – Band 8C Full-Time – Fixed Term or Secondment until 31st March 2019

The Cancer Programme Manager is a busy and demanding role in the South West regional team which requires managing multiple requests for information with short deadlines, making sense of national policy/strategic requirements to be able to operationalise across the south. In addition, the post holder will design and implement systems and processes to ensure that there is a grip and understanding of cancer performance issues. It also requires establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with our Cancer Alliances in order to influence and support the part they play in building sustainable cancer services across the region.

You will need to enjoy working in a busy environment, managing multiple priorities - some planned but many unexpected – against tight deadlines and therefore you must be able to work under pressure. You will need to be flexible and organised with the ability to delegate effectively, exercise influence, and to work as part of a team with a ‘can do’ positive attitude. The role is part of the Assurance and Delivery directorate and will be working very closely with the regional medical directorate to achieve the programme’s objectives.

Interviews will be in Chippenham on Wednesday 29 August 2018.
