It ensures that the shape and skills of the future health and public health workforce evolve to sustain high quality outcomes for patients in the face of demographic and technological change. HEE ensures that the workforce has the right skills, behaviours and training, and is available in the right numbers, to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and drive improvements through supporting healthcare providers and clinicians to take greater responsibility for planning and commissioning education and training.

What does the team do?

The NHS is facing one of its biggest workforce challenges ever. The NHS has experienced an unprecedented increase in demand in recent years and waiting lists are at their highest in 10 years. Coupled with, this staffing numbers are not keeping up with service demands, vacancy levels are at an all-time high and student numbers are dropping. The Workforce team aims to support the transformation work in London within the NHS to analyse workforce numbers across the whole health and care system, observe trends, identify shortfalls and undertake modelling to predict future need and suggest different ways of working to address workforce issues now and in the coming years.

About the role

As the Strategic Workforce Modelling Lead you will support workforce transformation across London by building workforce models and sharing these with colleagues within the organisation, with other Arms-Length Bodies as well as to many stakeholders across London.

Who are we looking for?

You will have a sound knowledge of the importance of good information analysis to support strategy. You’ll therefore be able to translate business requirements collected from stakeholders into fully operation workforce models presented before relaying the information back to stakeholders through meetings and workshops. You will be a confident and credible communicator with experience of working with senior colleagues and stakeholders in a range of organisations. Experience of workforce modelling or any other system modelling is essential and stakeholder engagement, management and communication is a key component of the role as you will be supporting our partners in developing strategic plans in line with the wider transformation agenda of the NHS.

You will need a demonstrable knowledge and skill in the use of data, intelligence and information related to the health and care sector and ideally be experienced in the use of the NHS Staff Record (ESR) and other data sources available through NHS Digital, Skills for Care and Skills for Health.

You will have a high level of experience in the use of knowledge and information including the acquisition, organisation, and provision of the data and also have experience of developing and mobilisation of modelling solutions in large complex organisations / systems.

As a senior member of the team, you will be a key player in the shaping and development of the function and will be pivotal in how the team aligns and interfaces with the Business Intelligence and Informatics team. You will be responsible for the line management of more junior staff in the team, therefore managerial experience is desirable with the ability to supervise and delegate work appropriately.

Interviews will take place in week commencing 12th March 2018.
