Job Reference: 321-CSS-PATHPM-B8A

Employer: Department: Pathology and Laboratories Location: John Radcliffe, Oxford Salary: £45,753 - £51,668 per annum

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use V alue Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Project Manager - Pathlake Plus

We are seeking a forward-thinking, highly motivated Project Manager, ideally with significant experience of pathology services or large scale IT implementation projects, to deliver an exciting digital transformation programme in pathology (PathLAKE+) across the four NHS trusts of the South 4 Pathology Partnership.

This will be for a 3 year fixed term appointment (anticipated to commence Jan 2021)

The delivery of this project will involve a wide range of stakeholders including senior directors and managers, pathology clinicians and scientists, and IT / technical experts internal and external to the four trusts. Excellent interpersonal skills, strong planning, the capacity to challenge, and the ability to establish strong and effective working relationships at all levels will therefore be fundamental to a successful outcome. The post-holder will need high levels of self-motivation, tenacity and resilience, and should be experienced in the application of structured programme management processes and interventions. Key responsibilities will include developing and maintaining a robust programme management framework and co-ordinating and closely monitoring activities within it, maintaining oversight of all workstreams, troubleshooting, and accurately reporting progress against agreed milestones.

The post is primarily based at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, but the successful applicant will be expected to work and attend meetings across all 4 trusts in the partnership, so the ability to travel locally on a regular basis is essential. Additional but less frequent visits to other sites for meetings is also anticipated. The post is full-time (37.5 hours a week).

Closing date: 5th November 2020
