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 England – South East (HIOW) Commissioning Team aims to help protect the health and well-being of the people in our geographical area of responsibility throughout the course of their lives, by ensuring access to high quality, cost effective screening and immunisation programmes. 

The key elements of this role are assisting with the management of contracts, performance and payments for services delivered by GPs, NHS Trusts and independent sector organisations; it will also involve support to the delivery of a range of related activities.

The successful candidate will be well organised, adaptable and able to manage multiple priorities. It is important that you are highly skilled in the use of computer packages, in particular Microsoft Word and Excel (to intermediate level) and able to interpret, analyse and present a range of complex information. You will be confident communicating with internal and external stakeholders. Attention to detail is essential. Experience of working in a commissioning and/or contracting environment would be an advantage.

The role may require some, but not extensive, travel across the Hampshire, Dorset and Isle of Wight areas and occasionally to our regional Head Office in Reading and meetings in London.
