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.

Cancer Alliance Administrator

Location: Fosse House, Leicester LE19 1SX

Are you skilled in providing administrative assistance to a busy and dynamic team?

As one of the 16 Cancer Alliances within England, covering the counties of Derbyshire (part), Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire (with a population of 4.1 million), we are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic individual to join our team.

The East Midlands Cancer Alliance (EMCA) is a collaboration with stakeholders from across health and social care and the third sector, who work together to develop and deliver new models of care, with a view to achieving ‘world-class cancer outcomes’. The outcomes for cancer in the East Midlands have improved in line with national trends, but there is still further work to do.

As an Alliance Administrator, the post holder will work with a dynamic team to provide efficient, accurate, responsive and high quality administrative and secretarial support to the EMCA team based in Fosse House.

The successful candidate will be able to approach tasks in a coordinated and methodical way, ensuring tasks are prioritised and completed efficiently to agreed deadlines. 

The candidate will have comprehensive organisational, planning and IT skills with an ability to engage and work effectively with colleagues and stakeholders, with good written and verbal communication skills. Decision-making and problem solving must also come naturally, whilst acting upon their own initiative to operate effectively under pressure, escalating issues when required.

The successful candidate will have the ability and confidence to cope with the demands and pressures of a busy working environment with a flexible approach to providing high quality administrative support.

This is a full time post, but part time will also be considered and is offered on a secondment or fixed term basis until September 2019 (with the possibility of funding being extended) and it requires some travel across the East Midlands geography.

This is an opportunity to join an established, flexible and reliable team who are committed to making a real improvement and difference to transforming cancer services for the population of the East Midlands.

Successful applicants will be invited for an interview on the 4 December and should be prepared to conduct an in-tray exercise.

 Closing date for applications is 19 November 2018
