Job Title: Programme Director – Prevention and Reversal of Type 2 Diabetes across East Region
Grade: Executive Level E (NHS)
Location: Can be based throughout the East Region
Contract Duration: 2 year fixed term contract / secondment
Hours: 37.5 hours per week
Closing Date: 1st November 2018
Salary Scale: £77,313 to £104,327 per annum
This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, creative and dynamic individual to lead a unique interagency collaboration in the East of Scotland (Fife, Borders and Lothian) on a secondment or fixed term basis for 2 years.
Type 2 Diabetes is one of the biggest preventable disease burdens in the region with significant care and cost consequences for the NHS and wider health economy, not to mention the significant personal burden to individuals and their families. Approximately 9% of current NHS budget is spent on diabetes or diabetes related conditions equating to an estimated £194m in the East Region.
The Programme Director will be responsible for leading our whole system transformation programme to deliver the Prevention and Reversal of Type 2 Diabetes, a key strand of the East Region’s Prevention and Better Health Work stream which involves 6 Local Authorities, 6 Integration Joint Boards and 3 NHS Boards.
You will be required to influence the priorities and resources of all the partners involved in the partnership as well as engaging with and harnessing the co-operation of a wide range of other agencies such as Health Scotland, Food Standards Scotland, commercial and business enterprises, research and academic departments, 3rd Sector, and others. Given the Scottish Government priority of creating a healthier population in Scotland through tackling obesity, diet, Type 2 Diabetes and wider health inequalities, links with government policy leads will be essential to maximise opportunities to influence resource allocation, policy development and other enablers such as national communications and evaluation.
You should be educated to degree level with a post-graduate or professional qualification in a relevant area of knowledge. Demonstrable strategic and operational experience at Corporate Management/Board team level in a large complex organisation is essential, with a commitment to co-production with citizens and stakeholders. You should have excellent communications skills, the ability to work with a range of stakeholders at all levels, encouraging and supporting innovation, team-working and creative partnerships in order to engage productively with the wide range of health, local authority, voluntary and private sector and public interests.
Experience of the public service reform/transformation agenda and of working with senior management teams in developing cross agency programmes & projects is also desirable. You will be expected to identify and develop proposals for external funding to further develop the programme using sources such as research grants, lottery funds and commercial sector support.
You will be required to work across the area covered by the East of Scotland Partnership, therefore the ability to travel and manage workload flexibly is essential.
