Job description

Arden & GEM is one of the largest Commissioning Support Units in the country. Our customers include more than 60 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG), NHS England, local authorities and a range of care providers.

With offices throughout the Midlands, North West and South East we cover a core geographic patch that extends to Greater Manchester in the north and Essex in the south. Our services are built on a strong foundation of experienced people who build great relationships, a commitment to NHS values and a thorough understanding of our clients and the challenges they face.

We provide real value to our customers by working at scale, creating the synergies and innovation that ultimately drives improved patient outcomes and makes commissioning resources work harder.

Our cornerstones are quality, value, innovation and complete customer focus.


BAND 5 Covid-19 Vaccination Support Officer

A number of posts

An exciting opportunity has arisen for several organised and highly motivated individuals who are educated to degree level or equivalent to join NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit. These fixed term posts are for six months and will be “embedded” within NHS England and Improvement regional COVID-19 Vaccination Teams. They offer applicants the opportunity to enhance their project management and decision-making skills in a challenging but supportive environment. Preference will be given to those who have recently graduated in relevant subjects such as Business, Sciences, Finance and HR.

NHS Arden & GEM Commissioning Support Unit is one of five commissioning support organisations in England that provide services to NHS England / Improvement, commissioners and care providers across the country. We act as a valued and trusted partner for commissioners, local authorities and providers to tackle the challenges faced in building integrated, high-quality, cost-effective services that lead to better health outcomes for patients.

Attributes that would be advantageous but are not essential in fulfilling these roles include:

  • Ability to work at significant pace
  • Attention to detail and accuracy
  • Willingness to develop rapid understanding of NHS structures
  • Commitment to work as part of a team and understanding team dynamics

Working within NHS England / Improvement regional teams is an excellent opportunity to develop transferrable skills in operational resilience and leadership that will align well with future NHS health and care system roles. These posts will also provide experience that will inform existing policy making and commissioning nationally.

Closing date: Sunday 22 November 2020

Interview dates: 30 November 2020 and 1 December 2020
