Job Description

People Source Consulting have been asked to recruit an interim Sustainability Project Manager for a NHS organisation in the Thames Valley.

Focused purely on sustainability within the NHS, this project manager will work within the context of the National 'Greener NHS programme' and against a backdrop of a need for supply chain sustainability and security due to the impact of the Global Pandemic.

Specifically, the role will focus on organising and enabling the efforts of both regional and local healthcare partners who are trying to create a more sustainable NHS.

The Role will be split into 3 main parts:

*Engagement - link up across the regional health and care system on major initiatives on sustainability
*Representation - be the sustainability programme lead for the Region, to represent the programme team in local and national forums on sustainability programmes
*Delivery - this is not a coordination role - the programme manager will need to deliver on a number of substantial sustainability programmes working with the local and National sustainability networks

The Sustainability Lead will ensure that all major programmes have calculated the environmental impact, including the carbon footprint and wider ecological implications, on the NHS and that there is a sustainability case produced in a consistent manner using an agreed methodology (e.g. NICE methodology and working with the NHS Sustainability Development Unit).

This is an exciting opportunity to make an impact locally and Nationally, on the security and future of our healthcare system as well as Climate Change.

The challenge will be to prioritise opportunities, focus on key areas to influence and deliver tangible benefits. As the UK emerges from the COVID-19 crisis this role will be important in helping to build the sustainable and secure supply chain for the future.
