Health Education England is committed to recruiting the best person for the job, based solely on their ability and individual merit as measured against the criteria for the role; through a process that is fair, open, consistent and free from discrimination. Health Education England supports the values and pledges of the NHS Constitution.

We are committed to being a diverse and an inclusive employer and will build a culture where all employees are valued, respected and acknowledged. We strive to ensure that no individual receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of their gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, colour, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital or civil partnership status, transgender status, HIV status, social background, trade union membership or non-membership and is placed at a disadvantage by requirements or conditions that cannot be shown to be justifiable.

Fixed Term (until 31st March 2021).

All young people deserve the best start in life. But too often, young people with a mental health problem are not able to fulfil their potential. Mental ill-health costs individuals, and society, dearly. And we know that adults with mental ill-health are likely to have already experienced mental health problems in their childhood or adolescence. Mental health problems cause distress to people and all those who care for them.  ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision: a Green Paper’ therefore sets out an ambition for earlier intervention and prevention, a boost in support for the role played by schools and colleges, and better, faster access to NHS services.

Health Education England has a key role to play in supporting the delivery of Future in Mind (2015), the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (2016) and the Green Paper and we are seeking highly motivated and experienced programme managers to join our transformation hub team. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join a team working to deliver a workforce transformation portfolio. We are looking for three programme managers to join Health Education England’s Midlands and East Workforce Transformation hub (secondment or fixed term contract until 31-March-2021).  The posts will be based at either our Birmingham, Cambridge or Leicester offices (one post per office) and although the posts will have a geographical focus; you will be part of a single programme team and close working between the post holders and the wider team is expected.  A team and function development programme including training needs, development cycles, talent management opportunities and portfolio governance underpins our matrix working.

Focusing on the children & young people’s programme successful applicants will have experience of working in a mental health setting (preferably within the context of children & young people) and have successfully led and delivered complex change programmes.  You will have the ability to develop strong working relationships across a broad range of stakeholders and be able to negotiate and influence to deliver the programme’s outcomes.  Strong analytical skills and the ability to use technology competently are also essential. 

The job description and person specification are an outline of the tasks, responsibilities and outcomes required of the role. The job holder will carry out any other duties as may reasonably be required by their line manager.

Interviews are provisionally scheduled for:

Cambridge: 22nd January 2019

Birmingham: 16th January 2019

Leicester: 15th January 2019
