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.  

HEE have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all applicants and employees are treated fairly and consistently.  We are proud to showcase our Disability Confident Employer accreditation, being an Inclusive Employer, a Stonewall Diversity Champion, our bronze award from the Defence Recognition Scheme, and we are delighted to support Apprenticeships and Tommy’s pregnancy at work scheme.

Successful digitally-enabled change requires good people. Good leaders, good digital experts and digitally ready users. You are going to help get Health Education England digital-ready.

The Workforce Planning and Information Directorate is looking for an experienced and personable Project Manager to join the Chief Information Officer’s department to coordinate the People Programme, one element of the HEE-wide Information Strategy (IS). This is a highly significant piece of work that will impact on creating a digital-ready organisation staffed with a 21st Century workforce.

You will manage the delivery of the People programme and will therefore develop a profession of informaticians and build a digital ready workforce supported by an environment of effective digital leadership in HEE.

The People programme is divided into three parts: developing a profession of informaticians for HEE; ensuring every employee of HEE is digitally ready; and working with senior leaders to ensure HEE has the right culture and capability to thrive in a world of accelerating change.

The programme will utilise national infrastructure and services provided by the Building a Digital Ready Workforce programme, which aims to support digital readiness across the whole of health and care. In this way the People programme will support HEE to be an adaptable, innovative and fun place to work, staffed by people both willing and able to use data, information, knowledge and technology effectively, led by a board who set a change-positive culture and a clear and captivating vision for the future.

You will bring your significant OD and project/programme management experience to initiating this programme in preparation for a wider implementation across the organisation. This is a new role and you will have significant autonomy to take the project in the right direction
