NHS Improvement is the operational name for the organisation that brings together Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, Patient Safety, the National Reporting and Learning System, the Advancing Change team and the Intensive Support Teams.

 

NHS Improvement’s Policy Team consists of around 20 policy professionals, including Policy Directors, Senior Policy Advisers, Policy Advisers and Policy Associates. We help NHS Improvement understand and solve the challenges facing the healthcare system, focusing on where we can have the greatest impact and take good decisions based on the best possible evidence.

 

As Policy Associate, you will support strategy and policy projects by using your problem solving and analytical skills to inform evidence-based decision-making. This involves working with key internal and external stakeholders on specific projects usually with support from a Policy Adviser or Senior Policy Adviser.

 

Experience of managing tasks and projects and the associated risks, and experience in data collection, quantitative and qualitative analysis and research are essential, as is the ability to distil complex information and evidence into briefings and recommendations.

 

If you are a motivated self-starter with a desire to build knowledge and expertise in health policy at a national level and are keen to work in a challenging, fast-paced environment we would be delighted to hear from you. 

Interviews will take place in November in London. If you have any further questions, please contact Patrick Fraher (p.fraher@nhs.net).
