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.

If the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area supplement. This supplement is not applicable to Executive or Senior Manager or Medical Leader positions. For positions offered on a part time basis, salary and any allowances will be adjusted pro rata.

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

The NHSBSA is responsible for the processing of your application; a privacy notice is attached to advise you on how we will process your personal data.

Personalised Care will benefit up to 2.5 million people by 2024, giving them the same choice and control over their mental and physical health that they have come to expect in every other aspect of their life; it is based on ‘what matters’ to people and their individual strengths and needs. The Personalised Care Group (PCG) is responsible for driving forward the agenda across the NHS in England as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. Universal Personalised Care (UPC) is the delivery plan which is underpinned by six evidence-based and inter-linked components, each of which is defined by a standard, replicable delivery model. Supported self-management is one of these key components.

As a Project Support Officer, you will work as part of a dynamic, fast-paced team, delivering an effective service, providing high level project and administrative support to managers and staff in the Supported self-management programme and across PCG. The nature of the team/role is such that the post holder will be required to adapt to changing priorities and deadlines and to take a proactive approach to their work. You will have the opportunity to make a real difference to this agenda at the national level, along with our wider commitments to ensure that patients and the public are at the heart of strategy and policy making, working closely with stakeholders across the wider health, social care and community sectors.

The post holder is a key member of the team whose goal is to support, promote and enable the NHS to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence (patient activation) a person with long term conditions has in managing their own health and care through systematically putting in place interventions such as health coaching, self-management education and peer support. We aim to do this through the effective use of data, information, knowledge and technology to improve, inform and support a portfolio of projects, services, and initiatives. The precise portfolio of work associated with this role could change with the demands of the organisation, however the immediate workload includes:

  • managing a busy public facing mailbox, forwarding emails to relevant team members and tracking progress;
  • developing and maintaining information systems across the team, accurately logging and maintaining information and data;
  • providing project support to the team by analysing and reporting on data; monitoring the processing of data and information; providing information and data on project matters;
  • arranging meetings, co-ordinating papers and producing and distributing agendas/minutes,
  • providing additional support to senior managers,
  • booking travel and accommodation for the team using in house systems.

This role is available as a fixed term contract up to 30 September 2019.

We recommend you apply for the role early as it may be closed before the closing date if a large number of applications are received.
