Regional Faculty Lead for Advancing Practice

Posted 18 September by NHS Business Services Authority

The NHS Long-Term Plan calls for a step change in multi-professional advanced practice requiring capacity to be built at national, regional and local system level, e.g. in Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs)/Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) or ‘faculties’ to drive change.

Health Education England East of England is looking for an inspirational leader for the post of Regional Faculty Lead for Advancing Practice. This is one of several vacancies across HEE regionally to provide an interface between HEE’s new national Centre for Advancing Practice and the local system. (The Centre has been established to standardise routes into advanced practice, accredit advanced practice programmes and recognise registered health and care practitioners who demonstrate prerequisite capabilities in advancing practice).

Do you have exceptional interpersonal and leadership skills which will inspire, motivate and influence at all levels, an ability to win hearts and minds and a determination to successfully drive forward advancing practice across a local system? If so, we look forward to hearing from you.

This is a high-profile leadership role requiring a passion for and detailed understanding of the multi-professional, multi-speciality advanced level practice agenda and an appreciation of the spectrum of roles in addition to sound programme management expertise.

You will drive the advancing practice agenda regionally and sub-regionally, actively promote advanced practitioners as part of local workforce solutions and be responsible and accountable for the development of the ‘virtual’ Regional Faculty for Advancing Practice and successful delivery of its objectives.

You will be a self-motivated change agent with excellent attention to detail, a natural ability to build strong and effective multi professional partnerships, plan, be keen to apply and grow your excellent organisational skills and be able to communicate effectively with individuals at all levels. Successful delivery is dependent on collaborative working so the ability to demonstrate strong communication skills and develop enduring stakeholder relations across the health and care system is essential.

Educated to Master’s level and a healthcare registrant, you will be able to demonstrate a robust understanding of advancing practice and be able to evidence strong organisational and budgetary skills.

The postholder will report to the Regional Head of Nursing, Senior Reporting Officer (SRO)

The post will be based in the HEE regional office East of England, and under normal circumstances will require frequent travel throughout the region and sometimes nationally.

Applicants will commence at the bottom of Band 8c with a full-time starting salary of £63,751, with a pay step increase after 5 years’ service. These salaries are offered in accordance with NHS Terms and Conditions and the HEE Pay Progression Policy and are subject to annual cost of living review.
