An exciting opportunity exists to join the National Centre for Sustainable Delivery as a Strategy and Impact Manager, working with our teams to deliver effect strategic planning coupled with a focus on demonstrating the value of our work.
The post has three important areas of responsibility.
- The first area is supporting the delivery of strategic planning exercises across CfSD, coupled with providing update reports of progress against plan and escalating areas where the organisation is not on track.
- The second area of focus is on developing and deploying a value and impact framework. This means working collaboratively with colleagues across CfSD to consider how we determine value as a result of our work. It also means taking ownership of deployment of the framework and utilising smart mechanisms to consider types of benefits, set targets and work with teams to track targets. As a Centre it is important to be value focused and articulate this through the work that we do.
- Finally the role will be central to leading governance reporting to key groups such as the Golden Jubilee Board and Strategic Portfolio Governance Committee. The role will be required to work with team members and Directors to generate reports which highlight achievement, priorities, risks and issues in order to provide assurance.
If you are someone who is process driven, organised, analytical and possess strong communication and engagement skills we are keen to hear from you. It is an important post which will play a pivotal role in challenging and highlighting the value of the work of the CfSD.
You should exhibit a demonstrable understanding of the NHS; an in depth understanding of programme/project management and improvement methodologies, experience in strategic planning processes and a strong understanding of benefits realisation and measurement strategies. The ability to work within a highly political agenda, manage to deadlines and respond to changing priorities is essential.
