Commissioning Project Manager (PO4)
12 month Fixed Term Contract
Creating a Sustainable Integrated Health and Care Support System
Named as the MJ Council of the Year 2019, and the first London Borough of Culture 2019, Waltham Forest is vibrant and distinctive; a fantastic place to live, work, explore and invest. With a growing cultural scene, more green space than any borough north of the Thames, and great transport connections to the city and beyond it is a vibrant and creative borough. Our ambition is to ensure all of our residents can enjoy a good quality life. We are working at pace to deliver our Redefining Waltham Forest 2020 vision and create a Council that is resident-focused, insight-led, digitally-driven and commercially-minded; a Council that can meet the needs of our existing and future residents. We are looking for the right people to make this a reality and with the Council’s strong track record of providing a variety of career pathways this is an exciting opportunity not to be missed.
We are looking to enhance our integrated commissioning team; a team that is visionary and innovative, has a flare for working collaboratively and most importantly is passionate about delivering improved outcomes for vulnerable people.
Waltham Forest Council and Waltham Forest CCG are currently seeking commissioning project managers to strengthen the integrated commissioning function across both organisations. These posts will be assigned to support key priorities within the team, including supporting specific commissioning and procurement exercises that are scheduled.
Based in Walthamstow, you will be part of an enthusiastic and motivated team and will play a key role in working closely with colleagues across the Council and the CCG, as well as external partners and members of the community. You will take a lead on a range of workstreams that are essential to effective delivery of the integrated commissioning priority work programmes that have been agreed for the borough, with a focus on securing customer focused, high quality, value for money services.
Previous experience of commissioning services in health or social care would be ideal. It is more important that you have experience of project and programme management in public services, are familiar with project and programme management methodologies, and are able to demonstrate impact in delivering sustainable and effective services at pace.
You will be educated to degree level and/or demonstrate relevant work experience and will possess relevant project or programme management qualifications, or equivalent experience which will be utilised in all aspects of delivery. If you are a committed team member, with drive, enthusiasm and a focus on delivery, we would like to hear from you. For an informal discussion please telephone Darren Newman, Assistant Director for Commissioning on 020 84968240
