Top job! Senior Healthcare Improvement Consultant

  • Full time
  • £41,792 – £46,435
  • Flexible, United Kingdom
  • Closing 23rd May 2021

Job Introduction

We have made good progress in improving the quality and standards of diabetes care in recent years. But much more needs to be done.

As a Senior Healthcare Improvement Consultant in our Healthcare Improvement team, you’ll play a vital role in helping the NHS across the UK unlock its potential for improving diabetes care. We work with extraordinary people in the NHS and supporting them has never been more important.

Role Responsibility

You will consult and work in partnership with local diabetes health systems, energising and inspiring colleagues and partners to work differently to improve diabetes care. You will grow the charity’s skills to facilitate improvement in local systems and drive a culture of high-performance and continuous learning that is relentlessly focused on improving outcomes for people with and affected by diabetes. And you will create high-impact partnerships with forward-thinking organisations that help build the improvement capacity of individuals, teams and local systems in the NHS.

The Ideal Candidate

You will be an experienced consultant, used to rolling your sleeves up and working in partnership with health systems on the ground to improve care. You see the process of change in health systems as messy, unpredictable and emergent (rather than planned and controlled). You thrive on challenge and find practical steps to take in the face of complexity and uncertainty. You are experimental by nature and challenge the status quo. And you have a growth-mindset, fuelled by an abundance of energy, compassion and appreciation for those you work with.

You will lead on developing our policy positions on addressing the social determinants of health – the underlying causes of type 2 diabetes. You will conduct policy research on the impact of poverty and social exclusion as underlying causes of type 2 diabetes, and on the health outcomes of those living with diabetes. You will need to identify networks and build new relationships for the organisation to support Diabetes UK’s emerging work in this area.

You’ll make proposals about what Diabetes UK and others can do to address these underlying causes of poor health outcomes and inequalities. As a Senior Policy Officer you’ll work proactively across the organisation to ensure consistent policy messages and to inform campaigning and influencing activities by producing briefings, consultation responses, and other content.

The Ideal Candidate

You will have experience of working in a policy role in a charity or similar organisation. You can use insight and research to analyse and investigate complex policy issues and make clear proposals to address these. You will have an understanding of policy relating to social justice and poverty and be connected to relevant networks.

It would be especially useful if you have experience of working on these issues in a health- related organisation or setting. You communicate clearly and can explain policy positions to a range of stakeholders. You are curious and keen to understand and improve the lived experiences of people with poor health outcomes.
