Are you a Senior Project Lead with a can do attitude who can help translate a vision into reality? Do you possess leadership qualities and the ability to work with diverse groups of people in order to deliver results that make a difference? Are you able to think and plan clearly, seeking out the best way forward and motivating others to work effectively as a team?
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a highly motivated and innovative team at the NIHR Clinical Research Network’s National Coordinating Centre, where we are looking to enhance our leadership team within the Medical Directorate to support a number of business projects over the next 2 years.
Purpose of the post
The post involves close, day-to-day working with a wide range of individuals and organisations, including very senior staff and strong, flexible and dynamic working relationships are critically important.
You will have responsibility for managing individual project work streams that cut across Specialties within the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) Medical Directorate, ensuring that projects have robust governance and meet delivery targets in line with strategic objectives. Projects will be allocated based on the specific skill sets and experiences of the Project Leads in areas such as Data Management and Analysis, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), and community-based settings.
You will also be responsible for the management of an administrative team which is currently being built, and for driving and coordinating the involvement of external organisations and stakeholders in project governance and delivery, working at a national level.
As a Cross-Specialty Senior Project Lead, you will directly assist the Head of Medical Directorate and the Heads of Cluster in delivering the Directorate projects and ensuring project outputs are applicable across a range of Specialty areas.
