Due to the nature of the role, regular travel to, and on site working at our plasma centres will be required.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is a Special Health Authority dedicated to saving and improving lives. We are an essential part of the NHS providing a wide range of services making the most of absolutely every donation – from blood and organs to tissues and stem cells, plus our role in manufacture and supply of Special Medicines and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products. Few organisations have the ability to reach so many, delivering the best possible service to patients, donors, and the NHS. The range of our work providing diagnostic and therapeutic services, organ donation & transplantation, and blood supply, demands that our operations are world class, providing a safe, reliable and efficient supply across the UK by working seamlessly with an unparalleled range of stakeholders including government, volunteers, the health sector and academia.

We were formed in 2005 by bringing together the National Blood Service and UK Transplant. We are now one of the largest and most effective organisations of its type in the world.

A recent Government decision to legislate resumption of fractionation of UK plasma for plasma-derived medicinal products (PDMPs) to be supplied exclusively to the NHS for UK patients benefitting thousands of patients has opened up a fantastic opportunity for NHSBT as the main provider of plasma in the UK. NHSBT has been instructed by the Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) to immediately build an end-to-end supply chain capability for  Plasma For Medicines  (PFM).

Meeting this challenge requires a strong and robust project management strategy, looking at how we deliver the plan ensuring high levels of processes, capability and skills dictated by a highly regulated clinical environment.

To support our plans, we are looking for two programme managers to manage programmes or portfolios of related NHSBT projects from inception through to completion.

You will be responsible for planning, supporting and monitoring the progress of programmes and managing internal resources and external suppliers and consultants to ensure that programme and project deliverables are tightly linked to the achievement of strategic initiatives.

You'll also be accountable for the planning, structuring, leading and execution of programme objectives and you will participate in the development and improvement of portfolio programme and project management tools and methods.

Candidates should apply for this role through the NHS Jobs Website.

Closing date: 3 October 2021.

Panel interviews will be held in the week commencing 18th October 2021.
