Senior Managers at NHS England and NHS Improvement include finance professionals, management consultants and economists and come from a range of backgrounds including financial services firms, the health sector, large commercial organisations and regulatory bodies. They bring to the role critical thinking and governance. If you wish to challenge yourself, make a positive impact in patient care, whilst also benefiting from a healthy work life balance, our Senior Manager posts within Provider Development may be the opportunity for you.
The Provider Development directorate works with regional teams, local health systems and the provider sector to ensure that we have strong and successful providers, working collaboratively within strong and successful systems, in the best interests of local patients, populations and staff. The Provider Transformation team works closely with NHS providers and with the regional teams across the areas of:
- Diligence and assurance of complex provider to provider transactions;
- Supporting NHS providers and systems to diagnose the challenges facing them and to develop and deliver solutions for the delivery of sustainable services such as via joint management across trusts or developing strategic options for unsustainable providers;
- Developing the future provider landscape, for example designing new organisational forms to support greater collaboration.

This will include commissioning and working with Senior Analysts to undertake analytical work relating to the diagnosis, solutions development, regulatory strategy, assurance and oversight at provider and systems level.
Our approach is based on team and project working using a pool-based resourcing model; this enables people to work both on different types of projects and with different people within the team combined with the benefits of having an individual based line management approach.
