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 NHS Genomic Medicine Service approved by the NHS England Board in March 2017 will be world leading through its intention to introduce cutting edge genomic technologies up to the level of whole genome sequencing into routine care in the NHS by October 2018. This builds upon the NHS contribution to the 100,000 Genomes Project and the establishment by NHS England of 13 NHS Genomic Medicine Centres and will encompass ongoing genomic projects inclusive of those emerging from the Life Sciences Industrial Strategy and those genomic projects linked to research and development both nationally and internationally.

We are currently recruiting three new Genomics Policy Managers who will sit a new team within the Genomics Unit.

 The post holders will work as part of a new team to support the development of NHS England’s policy and strategy across all aspects of genomics. The post holders will need to work within a fast-paced environment to ensure NHS England’s approach is informed by evidence and aligned with all statutory and regulatory requirements.
