Senior Programme Manager
£50-65k pa + excellent benefits
Two-year, fixed-term contract
Are you a dynamic, entrepreneurial and collaborative programme manager able to combine thinking and doing to lead complex programmes? If so, Nesta is looking for a Senior Programme Manager to join our high-performance People Powered Results team and help lead the development and delivery of our work in Greater Manchester.
About Nesta and People Powered Results
Nesta is a global innovation foundation. We back new ideas to tackle the big challenges of our time. Our mission is to spark and shape new ideas that improve how the world works for everyone. We use our knowledge, networks, funding and skills - working in partnership with others, including governments, businesses and charities. We are a UK charity but work all over the world, supported by a financial endowment.
Health Lab’s work addresses the challenge of how to support a population living with more long-term health conditions when the health and care system is under serious financial pressure by looking for better ways for people to remain healthy – drawing on their own energy and ideas, as well as the insights of medical science and new digital tools – a vision for the future of the health and care system we call ‘People Powered Health’.
Within Health Lab, the People Powered Results team, working alongside our founding partners, the Rapid Results Institute, have developed a 100-day structured innovation process that supports front-line staff to collaborate and rapidly experiment with new ways of working that achieve real results for people and communities.
About this exciting opportunity
Working closely with the Head of Development and the rest of the team, you will focus on managing the design and delivery of a portfolio of People Powered Results programmes, developing projects and opportunities with senior leaders, and designing complex, place-based change efforts. You will also:
- Design, plan and facilitate workshops
- Coach and support individuals and teams
- Build productive relationships, partnerships and networks with stakeholders
- Represent People Powered Results, Health Lab and Nesta externally in the Greater Manchester region
What we are looking for
You will have a sound knowledge and practical understanding of health and social care or have highly relevant experience from closely aligned fields, plus experience of change and innovation methods and tools, and designing and delivering innovation/improvement programmes in a public service context. An outstanding communicator, both verbal and written, you will also be an effective leader with the ability to support and develop people and teams to achieve their potential.
Strong programme management, problem-solving and coaching skills (including workshop design and delivery), are vital, as is a flexible, approachable and can-do attitude to your work.
Health Lab is growing - and offers a vibrant, stimulating environment, with colleagues who share a passion for social change and helping to create health and care that is for people, by people and with people.
