This is an exciting and highly influential role within The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. As Workforce Manager, you will manage a Workforce team with responsibility for collecting, analysing and disseminating data and evidence from the workforce projects the RCPCH manages, to ensure the College maintains its profile in shaping the paediatric workforce across the UK.
Responsible for leading the development and implementation of the RCPCH workforce strategy, along with other senior officers and staff, this is an excellent opportunity for a highly strategic individual with in-depth knowledge and experience in workforce planning across health services.
With experience in the management of workforce information systems and data analysis, you will translate this into robust recommendations and develop external relationships with key decision makers to ensure that there are the right number of paediatricians, in the right place at the right time.
This will involve building and managing external relationships with contacts in national and local bodies responsible for child health workforce planning decision making and providing specialist knowledge and advice on a range of workforce issues.
This role is pivotal for the College at a time when there are significant shortages in paediatric rotas across the UK and where there is a compelling case to be made to support RCPCH’s members in delivering safe and sustainable services to children and their families. The role is also being advertised at an exciting time as NHS England begins implementing its ten-year Long Term Plan which includes a much stronger focus on children and young people.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.
The RCPCH has more than 19,000 members and fellows and employs around 160 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
