MS Risk Project Manager

Project Manager - Multiple Sclerosis Service Improvement Projects Band 6/7 (depending on experience).

N.B Please note it is possible to appoint this post as Band 6 or 7 depending on skills and experience. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Multiple Sclerosis team at University Hospitals Plymouth to appoint an enthusiastic, motivated and dynamic Project Manager/Service Development Specialist to make a significant difference to the health outcomes of people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Initially a 12 month appointment you will be working within an established MS team that includes two Consultants, three Specialist Nurses and an admin team of 7 people to lead the delivery of two strategic projects.  These projects are the introduction of new approaches to the review and monitoring of people with MS and the implementation of a new Infusion facility to support MS treatments. The team work collectively to provide comprehensive care and support for the local MS population and this role will be a key part of the team and their shared ambition to deliver outstanding care. 

The team are looking for an individual with a creative, proactive, problem solving attitude and experience of leading service change in a clinical setting; this is more important than formal project management qualifications.   Experience of the IT systems used within UHPT to support care delivery will be a distinct advantage, as this will accelerate project delivery.  The applicant will also need to be flexible as in delivering the projects, and their outcomes, there will be a need to cover some aspects of clinical administration whilst impact and benefits of the project are assessed.

Excellent communication and organisational skills, flexibility and the ability to work autonomously and engage participation from others will be key attributes in making sure these projects are successful. The projects will provide opportunity to develop and evolve thinking and will have significant benefit for people with MS and the clinical community who support them. 

In addition to the clinical service the wider activities of the MS team encompass clinical, academic and commercial research and innovation projects.  Through these, a wider team is engaged on a long- term basis to work and support multiple projects on a local and global level.  Therefore, for the right candidate there is opportunity to use this initial short-term contract to develop a profile in MS related activities that could establish a longer-term career with many opportunities for career development and progression.
