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.

About the Role

Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.

The Yorkshire and the Humber local office of Health Education England is seeking applications for a Deputy Postgraduate Dean due to upcoming retirement of the existing postholder. This post will require a commitment of up to 3 days/week (6 PAs) and we welcome applications from all clinical staff with appropriate knowledge and skills.

This role is a senior leadership position with designated portfolios and the successful applicant will need to be flexible to provide cross-cover to colleagues as well as deputising for the Postgraduate Dean as required.

Key attributes of the successful applicant include:

We are wishing to appoint a leader with a proven track record of innovation, strong interest in developing the wider workforce, experience of supporting trainees to achieve their maximum potential, vision and great team-working ability. This role demands an individual with strong influencing, negotiating and communication skills, with the ability to work effectively with colleagues both within HEE and external stakeholders.

Whilst the portfolios are strategic in nature, the role does require visible presence at local offices and hands on management of postgraduate medical educational issues and support for workforce transformation.

The successful candidate will work in either the Leeds, Sheffield or Hull office, but will be expected to travel to other offices and to London as required.

Interviews are planned to take place on 27 March 2020 in Leeds.
