Job description

Our Organisation

NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.

At the NHS, we are reminded every day of how important life is. As a flexible working friendly organisation, we want to be sure that you can work in a way that is best for us and for our patients, and for you. Speak to us about how we might be able to accommodate a flexible working arrangement whether that’s job share, part time or another flexible pattern. In addition, although the role advertised may have an ‘home’ office base indicated, we remain committed to supporting flexibility around workplace locations. If it works for the service, we will do our best to make it work for you.

Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.

We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated and talented individual to support the NHS response to the COVID-19 Pandemic in the North West region. The NHS England NHS Improvement North West Incident Management Team has been established to co-ordinate the regional NHS response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK. Within each of the seven NHS England and NHS Improvement regions, an Incident Control Centre (ICC) has been established. The objectives of the North West ICC are:

To ensure the capacity is in place across the NW to cope with the projected volumes of cases in line with the national operating policies and procedures for handling COVID-19.

  • To identify and escalate, where appropriate COVID-19 related incidents and problems being experienced in the region.
  • To ensure good flow of information, both ways, between National Incident Co-Ordination Centre and local health services.
  • To join up at regional level the efforts by different agencies e.g. NHS, PHE.

The role of Project Manager is on a fixed term basis until 31st March 2021 and will be based within the PMO, supporting the ICC to achieve its objectives.

The successful candidate will be required to work within the North West COVID-19 Incident Co-ordination Centre based at Regatta Place, Liverpool on a 7 day shift pattern (0800-2000). There is free parking available at this site. All of our offices have been subject to a formal risk assessment, to ensure that they are safe working environments for our staff. There will also be some remote working.

We welcome expressions of interest from colleagues from our local and neighbouring communities of all backgrounds and identities, who are currently under-represented within our region such as colleagues with disabilities, and Black, Asian and Minority ethnic.
