All young people deserve the best start in life. But too often, young people with a mental health problem are not able to fulfil their potential. Mental ill-health costs individuals, and society, dearly. And we know that adults with mental ill-health are likely to have already experienced mental health problems in their childhood or adolescence. Mental health problems cause distress to people and all those who care for them. ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision: a Green Paper’ therefore sets out an ambition for earlier intervention and prevention, a boost in support for the role played by schools and colleges, and better, faster access to NHS services.
Health Education England has a key role to play in supporting the delivery of Future in Mind (2015), the NHS Long Term Plan 2019 and the Green Paper and we are seeking a highly motivated and experienced project manager to join our transformation hub team.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a team working to deliver a workforce transformation portfolio primarily focused around Children and Young People’s Mental Health. We are looking for an experienced Project Support Officer to join the Midlands Workforce Transformation hub (secondment or fixed term contract until 31-March-2021). The post will be based at one of our Midlands-based offices although the role will require travel across the region to attend meetings etc. The post holder will also attend national events to represent HEE and the team.
Successful applicants will have demonstrable experience of working in a mental health setting (preferably within the context of children & young people) and have successfully supported the delivery of transformation projects and programmes. You will have the ability to develop strong working relationships across a broad range of internal and external stakeholders and be able to negotiate and influence to reach consensus and deliver the programme’s outcomes. Strong analytical skills and the ability to use technology competently are also essential.
The job description and person specification are an outline of the tasks, responsibilities and outcomes required of the role. The job holder will carry out any other duties as may reasonably be required by their line manager.
Applicants will commence at the bottom of Band 5 with a full-time starting salary of £24,907, with pay step increases after 2 years’ service and 4 years’ service.
These salaries are offered in accordance with NHS Terms and Conditions and the HEE Pay Progression Policy and are subject to annual cost of living review.
Please note: Applicants from within the NHS will be offered on a secondment basis only, agreement should be obtained from their employer prior to submitting the application.
This is a full time, Fixed Term Contract or Secondment and the successful applicant will operate from one of HEE's Midlands bases: Westbridge Place, Leicester or St. Chads Court, Birmingham.
Interviews will take place on the 15th June 2020. We will decide whether to adopt 'in person' or remote interviews nearer the time. If 'in person' interviews are held, these will take place in HEE's Leicester Office, i.e. Westbridge Place, Leicester.
