An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Improvement Hub within Healthcare Improvement Scotland, which is currently developing a range of new approaches to support improvements in health and social care in Scotland. 

We are at a key stage in the future development of the Prison Healthcare Services following a recent Health and and Sport Committee enquiry and the subsequent establishing, by Scottish Government, of a Health and Justice Collboration Improvement  Board and Prison Health and Social Care Programme Board. 

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and positive Senior Programme Manager with excellent programme management skills in project planning, stakeholder management, communications, evaluation frameworks and impact reporting. The role will require a high level of skills and experience in project and programme management and excellent interpersonal skills.

The role will primarily focus on implementation of the strategic intent of the new Boards above, delivery and development of the National Prisoner Healthcare Network (NPHN) workplans, and progression of work streams as delegated by the national programme board and supporting the Chair of the NPHN in relation to recommendations coming from the review of the NPHN. 

As a highly experienced Senior Programme Manager you will have a strong track record in managing emergent complex and highly visible programmes of work with multiple partners. This will require you to gather and analyse complex information from a variety of sources, be a creative and innovative problem solver, confident communicator, effective team worker and have the ability to manage project staff and engage with key stakeholders.

Educated to degree level or equivalent, you will demonstrate proficiency in the planning, organisation and management of a demanding programme schedule, requiring a good working knowledge of Microsoft applications to support project delivery.
