If you are an experienced IT project manager with proven ability to get the most from a small team, you can play a central role within the Living Well Partnership. Bringing together seven established GP practices in East Southampton, we’re redefining the way healthcare is delivered – transforming the lives and futures of some 38,000 patients.

In this pivotal operational role, you will be crucial to our day-to-day functioning as you ensure reliable, cost-effective service provision across the organisation. You can expect plenty of variety and constant challenge as you oversee the delivery of a fit-for-purpose, responsive and supportive IT support service – proactively reducing any IT issues and ensuring the effective conduct and documentation of system checks and audits.

Equally importantly you will manage our facilities function, overseeing the established facilities coordinator, engaging with diverse suppliers and third-party contractors to optimise efficiency and deliver best value. What’s more, you can expect to play a pivotal part in quality inspections, health and safety audits and infection control procedures, so we require a high-calibre professional with real hunger for responsibility and the ability to provide responsive line management.

Joining us from an IT or operations background, you will be results-driven, quality-oriented and capable of using your initiative to the full. Needless to say, you will possess comprehensive knowledge of cutting-edge IT systems, a demonstrable ability to set stretching KPIs, ensuring their attainment, and proven flair for extracting, analysing and compiling data. Experience in the healthcare sector would be very useful, as would knowledge of GP processes and systems (including EMIS and Docman 10), but it’s your project management skills that will matter most – enabling you to deliver outstanding support to your clinical and administrative colleagues.

You will enjoy membership of the coveted NHS pension scheme, as well as 25 days annual leave (pro rata), generous NHS employee discounts, free parking and more.

If this is you, we would really like to meet you.
