Do you want to be involved in supporting NHS organisations to respond to HR challenges currently facing the NHS? Do you have an understanding of the NHS and the workforce and employment practice issues it faces? 

We have an excellent opportunity for a positive, motivated and organised person to join our development and employment team as a senior programme officer.

At NHS Employers, people are our business. We work with HR teams from across the NHS to help them to be the best employers they can be; to look after their staff and get the most out of them. Look at our NHS Employers website to find out more about what we do.

You will also be responsible for managing specific projects as required.

In line with our core values (Assured, Bold, Leading, Expert and Respect), we expect and encourage all team members to use their initiative to develop ways of working which assist them in their day-to-day work and support us in achieving our goals.
