NHS England leads the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We set the priorities and direction of the NHS and encourage and inform the national debate to improve health and care.

We want everyone to have greater control of their health and their 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 spending this money effectively for patients and efficiently for the tax payer. A lot of the work we do involves the commissioning of health care services in England. We commission the contracts for GPs, pharmacists, and dentists and we support local health services that are led by groups of GPs called Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). CCGs plan and pay for local services such as hospitals and ambulance services.

We have devised a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View. And now, with our partners, we are delivering that vision. This vision shows that we are getting serious about prevention, identifying and delivering improvements in health care, redesigning the NHS so it continues to meet the needs of patients, ensuring the NHS is financially sustainable and engaging the public in this whole process.

We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations.

Please note, if the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area Supplement. If this post is an Executive or Senior Manager (ESM) role or Medical Leader position this supplement is not applicable.

We will not accept applications for this position by CV or via recruitment agencies.


The Chief Clinical Information Officer area within the Operations and Information directorate shapes our health service to be open, responsive and transparent and give patients, carers, public, and those who serve them, the information and support that they need to make the best decisions and choices they can. It puts the NHS Constitution at the heart of all NHS and patient decision making and transforms patient experience with information and technology.

As the PMO Manager you will be responsible for coordinating planning activity and delivery reporting, including business planning, across the area. This will require you to work collaboratively across group business teams to understand requirements and help build, deliver and assure plans at both strategic and operational level. You will also coordinate oversight of work packages for commissions into NHS Digital.

In line with these responsibilities, you will need to adopt a matrix approach with other corporate areas such as finance and programme delivery and develop strong relationships with policy and strategy teams across the directorate and wider organisation.

Please note that interviews will be held on the 11th May in Quarry House, Leeds
