As Project Manager of the NPDA, you will lead the development and delivery of the audit including the overall audit methodology and production of periodic reports, following project, risk and budgetary management principles of each deliverable through to completion.

Reporting to the Head of Audits, you will drive forward the incremental improvements of delivery of care to children and young people with diabetes by leading the development of quality improvement and patient engagement activities, whilst also leading the development and delivery of systems for public reporting of audit key performance data in the public domain. You will also ensure that the audit findings are disseminated widely and effectively and will take responsibility for delivering presentations on the audit findings to commissioners and funders, as well as clinical and patient stakeholders.

In addition, you will assess the audit's impact, viability, scalability and legacy potential and assist in identifying the potential for future funding and development of tender applications. Ensuring audit contracts and supplier contracts are appropriately tendered, drafted, agreed, monitored and managed, you will also take the lead on the preparation for contract review meetings with commissioners, providing project progress and financial reports as required.

Degree qualified or with equivalent experience within a healthcare or research discipline, you should have proven experience of working in health-related audit or research in a university or NHS setting (or other relevant organisation) and be capable of producing high quality written reports, documentation and promotional information suitable for a range of audiences.

With outstanding contract management and negotiating skills and a recent and successful track record in a management role, you should also have line management experience and be able to take personal responsibility for your projects, whilst delegating, managing and assuring the work of others.

Your demonstrable knowledge of statistical concepts and data cleaning, processing and management, your high level of numeracy and your ability to interpret the interrogation of large, complex datasets will ensure you are able to deliver multiple objectives within short time frames to high standards and to meet multiple deadlines.

Experience of developing and delivering quality improvement and patient engagement activities along with experience of working on the development of an application programming interface (API) to allow software applications talk to each other for the purpose of secure data exchange, would be desirable.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.

The RCPCH has more than 22,000 members and fellows and employs around 200 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.

The College operates a flexible and modern working policy, whereby our colleagues work in the office for a minimum of 40% over a 4 week cycle and the remainder from home.

Closing date: 24 April 2024.
