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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join the Direct Commissioning Operation’s directorate of NHS England – North (Yorkshire and the Humber) as a Commissioning Support Officer on a fixed term basis.

As part of a dynamic commissioning team, the Commissioning Support Officer is a key member of the team who will actively support the development and delivery of effective primary and secondary care dental commissioned services across Yorkshire and the Humber.

Roles and responsibilities will include:

  • Secondary care data analysis and support and all ad hoc reporting as required
  • Development and management of dental commissioning reporting systems
  • Management of the public health reporting systems
  • Dental year end and mid year review data analysis and process
  • Monthly risk register
  • Community Dental Service data analysis and support
  • Development of primary care contract directory of services
  • Flexible commissioning strategy support
  • Line management of Band 5 posts


This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who is enthusiastic about the quality of health care services and as it is a fixed term post (until 30th September 2019 initially) it is suitable as a secondment opportunity.


The post holder can be based in Leeds, York or Rotherham but will require a flexible approach to travelling across the Yorkshire & Humber region as a presence at internal and external meetings across the area is expected.


If you would like more information about the post, please contact Jane Ollerton on 07876 869466 or email:


It is anticipated that the interview dates will be week commencing 4th March 2019.
