Strategic Delivery Manager

Do you have experience of partnership working in the health and care sector, and/or the academic sector? Do you have fantastic relationships skills and a track record of delivering work through others? If so, would you like to help us shape exciting programmes designed to transform health and care in Leeds?

The Leeds Academic Health Partnership (LAHP) helps to transform ideas into life-changing realities so people in Leeds’ communities and beyond can live healthier lives for longer. We bring together three Leeds universities, the city’s three NHS trusts, the Leeds NHS Clinical Commissioning Group and the City Council to:

-improve the quality, efficiency and sustainability of health and care services

-drive economic growth that improves skills, jobs and wealth for everyone, and

-narrow the gap in the health and wellbeing between people in deprived, and more affluent, communities.

Our wider membership also includes the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network, Yorkshire Cancer Research, St Gemma’s Hospice and Leeds City College.

We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Strategic Delivery Manager who will be responsible for working with our partners to shape and plan strategic programmes. Working to our Director of Strategic Delivery and Development, you will help us develop these programmes from innovative ideas into workable proposals that are ready to transition into partner hands.

To do this, you will develop relationships with senior local and national stakeholders and work collaboratively across our citywide partnership. You will need to combine expert skills in understanding and building relationships with a good sense of judgment, and an ability to come up with constructive, practical solutions to problems. You will need to understand how best to align proposals with related work across the city, the region and nationally. You will provide continued support to establish each programme as an independent and sustainable new way of working, and oversee its transition into delivery.
