Current vacancies

Clinical Associate (Band 7)

It is a very interesting time to join Horizons as a Clinical Associate (Project Manager) to help us build the clinical transformational capability across the NHS.

This opportunity is ideal for allied health professionals (across the 14 professions), pharmacists, nurses, midwives, doctors, psychologists and healthcare scientists who are keen to increase their leadership and transformational change capabilities. They should be interested in quality improvement and want to bring that knowledge to improve their practice. In return, we offer the opportunity for the post-holder to develop their understanding and practice in large-scale, transformational change. We anticipate that the post-holder will be able to integrate their learning back into their clinical practice during and at the end of their time with Horizons

The post will be key for developing our clinical model for the future.

The post holder (in addition to the generic job specification) will:

  • Act as a project manager and oversee the successful delivery of at least one core project (or element of a project) working with colleagues within Horizons, other teams within NHS England/Improvement and the wider NHS and care sector
  • Provide a clinical perspective to projects led by the Horizons team that support the recovery of health and care
  • Contribute to the development and implementation of learning approaches
  • Work alongside improvement experts, gaining experience of system leadership and large scale transformation.
  • Develop their social influence approach and virtual collaboration capability

The reason for the fixed term of your contract is short-term time limited project. The part time secondment contract is to encourage reciprocal learning.

As part of the secondment opportunity, the post holder will be encouraged to develop their own skills and work on a programme of activity that they can apply during and/or on their return to their substantive role.

The hours offered will be on a part time basis up to 0.5 WTE with the intention that the post holder will continue clinical duties in their current organisation so line manager support for this opportunity will be essential.

Closing date: 23:59, 24 October 2021
