NIHR RDN Workforce & Organisational Development Director

University of Leeds - National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR)

Location: Leeds
Salary: Competitive salary
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 21st February 2024
Closes: 7th March 2024
Job Ref: MHNCC1550

The University of Leeds has been chosen by the UK government to lead the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Research Delivery Network Coordinating Centre, and will be joined by 12 new Regional Delivery Networks, hosted by NHS organisations across the country to form the NIHR Research Delivery Network. The new NIHR Research Delivery Network (RDN) will operate as one unified organisation across England, balancing regional context, expertise and leadership with national coordination and strategy involving government policymakers.

As part of the RDN national leadership team, this high-profile national role will provide visible and effective senior leadership, direction and oversight for workforce and organisational development of the RDN.

You will shape and lead the development and delivery of inclusion, workforce and organisational development across the RDN. You will lead the development of a highly-skilled professional workforce and a culture of continuous improvement, shared learning, best practice and inclusivity across the RDN. 

You will be responsible for embedding inclusion throughout RDN culture and practice, for driving innovation, continuous improvement, shared learning and best practice, and for providing an RDN workforce with excellence in knowledge, skills and professional practice. This role requires knowledge and skills in both strategic thinking and planning, and in the effective operational implementation of workforce and organisational development. 

You will work alongside the other Directors as a high performing team to lead the organisation-wide shift in ways of working and culture that is required to ensure the network functions as a single organisation with a shared purpose and vision across England, as well as leading your own Directorate team through the period of transformation and beyond. 

The RDN is a multifaceted, diverse and ambitious organisation, so you will be able to provide credible leadership across organisational boundaries and be comfortable working out with conventional management hierarchies. Working with health and care organisations, staff and professional groups, you will have presence and will be able to demonstrate inspirational leadership and influence in a host of settings. With the ability to think strategically and grasp complex policy and political issues, you will have a strong understanding of health and care research delivery policy and practice, and of the opportunities and challenges in maximising health and care research for the benefit of patients and the public.

This national role requires substantial national travel and may require some international travel.
