Manchester Foundation Trust (MFT) is now the largest NHS Trust in England and the third largest provider of specialist services. In order to support our sizable workforce, we are investing heavily in a range of workforce tools. We are therefore growing a knowledgeable and skilled workforce systems team to manage both projects and business as usual support. We are looking for an engaged and organised Band 7 to lead our implementation of Allocate Health Medics Optima range and manage our BAU team in the longer term. This is a great opportunity to be part of an exciting future, delivering technology solutions that will drive and maintain service improvements. Engaging with management teams and clinicians across our 6 Hospitals, you will ensure that the programme of work is delivered to time and quality in order to realise business benefits. You will build strong relationships with senior managers and operational teams to foster transparency and consistency, as well as working closely with external suppliers.


You will have a strong background in project management, with broad experience of both technical implementation of workforce systems and change management. Your excellent leadership, communication skills and technical expertise will be key to success, and you will be great at building effective relationships at all levels. A flexible approach and ability to work well under pressure will stand you in good stead. This is an ambitious agenda so you will need to be proactive and set high expectations in terms of delivery. It will be fast-paced, complex and dynamic work but will bring huge job satisfaction.


The successful candidate must be willing to work across three sites.
