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.

As an organisation, NHS England's focus is now firmly set on delivering the priorities set out in the Five Year Forward View (FYFV) Next Steps and supporting transformation of the NHS locally through Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs).

An organisational transformation programme has been established to change the way NHS England (NHSE) and NHS Improvement (NHSI) work together to bring them closer. This will help us provide more direct delivery support to STPs and wider health systems and to deliver the above priorities.

The programme is currently mobilising for delivery. We have established a programme structure and currently have a number of key workstreams that are working to deliver the following areas:

• Designing, developing and implementing our new operating model between both organisations;

• Ensuring that the current system moves toward the new operating model and meets all of its obligations in doing so;

• Developing the leadership capabilities and resources required for now and in the future, both across the emerging future system and within NHS England;

• Ensuring we become a more flexible organisation, using our people, estate and IT to the best of their abilities;

• Using continuous improvement methodology to explore how we can make our own internal systems and processes more efficient, reducing waste and duplication;

• Ensuring we have the right communications and engagement to support all of the above.

As a Project Manager within the Joint Working Programme's Integrated Programme Office (IPO), you will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering an effective service supporting Workstream Leads, managers and staff to deliver the objectives and benefits of the Joint Working Programme.

You will provide programme management, delivery leadership and support to programmes driving significant transformational change. The post holder will be deployed to programmes of work based on Joint Working programme priorities.
