An exciting and dynamic post of Regional Talent Board Project Manager has been created to support the development of a ground breaking and high profile programme of work in the Midlands and East region. The post will form the heart of the new regional talent management team, responsible for implementing and then running on a ‘business as usual basis’ the regional talent management strategy – itself is part of the national talent management strategy under which every region will have its own talent board.

The Midlands and East is the pioneer for this new way of working and the new team will provide direct support to the Regional Talent Board (RTB). The RTB has defined its vision and begun the programme of work that will deliver it.  The focus is to ensure that the region ‘professionalises’ how it identifies, develops and supports staff more effectively, becoming increasingly self-sufficient when it comes to filling its key leadership positions and ensuring all staff are supported to fulfil their potential.

The post will be based in Cambridge, supporting and working with the Regional Programme Lead and Regional Talent Board Administrator, but the post holder will also be expected to work closely with the national talent management team, colleagues in the Local and National Leadership Academies as well as Health Education England, NHS Improvement, NHS England and provider trusts and clinical commissioning groups.

The successful Regional Talent Board Project Manager will demonstrate a good understanding of programme management techniques along with excellent interpersonal and organisational skills. Comfortable with a level of autonomy they will have the clarity of thought to provide the necessary governance, control and leadership to a still expanding and increasingly complex programme of work.  They must have a willingness to learn, a flexible approach and the ability to influence those around them. The team will quickly use current and acquire new knowledge and insight into talent management processes and approaches, project management, board support and governance and the delivery of an effective high-quality administration and board reporting operation.
