Job description

Summary

We have made good progress in improving the quality and standards of diabetes care in recent years. But much more needs to be done.

As a Senior Healthcare Improvement Consultant in our Healthcare Improvement team, you'll play a vital role in helping the NHS across the UK unlock its potential for improving diabetes care. We work with extraordinary people in the NHS and supporting them has never been more important.

Interview Date: 2 June 21

Package

What we can offer you:

  • Generous annual leave starting at 25 days plus bank holidays
  • A Cash Healthcare Plan (giving you up to £1,500 towards a range of out of pocket health expenses like new glasses, dentist, chiropractor or osteopath appointments)
  • Early finish Friday and flexible working as part of our approach to activity based working
  • Discounts on gym membership
  • Employee assistance programme to give you support on any issues that come up in life
  • Annual season ticket loan* (on completion of your probation period and if contract is permanent or longer than 12 months)
  • Very active social scene including sport teams, gardening and other activities
  • Generous pension provision, life assurance and income protection insurance
  • Cycle to work scheme* (eligible for scheme if contract is permanent or longer than 12 months)

*Some benefits aren't available until you've passed your probation period and are dependent on the length of contract.

Main Responsibilities

You will consult and work in partnership with local diabetes health systems, energising and inspiring colleagues and partners to work differently to improve diabetes care. You will grow the charity's skills to facilitate improvement in local systems and drive a culture of high-performance and continuous learning that is relentlessly focused on improving outcomes for people with and affected by diabetes. And you will create high-impact partnerships with forward-thinking organisations that help build the improvement capacity of individuals, teams and local systems in the NHS.

Ideal Candidate

You will be an experienced consultant, used to rolling your sleeves up and working in partnership with health systems on the ground to improve care. You see the process of change in health systems as messy, unpredictable and emergent (rather than planned and controlled). You thrive on challenge and find practical steps to take in the face of complexity and uncertainty. You are experimental by nature and challenge the status quo. And you have a growth-mindset, fuelled by an abundance of energy, compassion and appreciation for those you work with.
