The newly created Health Innovation Manchester (HInM) has a critical and exciting role to play in supporting the Health & Social Care Partnership (H&SCP) in delivering its vision of seeing the greatest and fastest improvement to the health and well-being of the local population. It will bring together the successes and expertise of the previous Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network (GMAHSN) and Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) organisations into a single body. This Academic Health Sciences System (AHSS) will use its collective resources and expertise to achieve its vision to be a recognised international leader in accelerating innovation in health and social care services, and transforming our population’s health and well-being.

Health Innovation Manchester’s Precision Medicine (PM) strategy aims to transform the current reactive, one size fits all patient management approach, into a proactive and agile one, bespoke to the individual. This will support GM H&SC’s priorities to address the significant health and social inequalities, variable health outcomes, and increasing costs of healthcare that exist within GM. Health Innovation Manchester will work to inform and influence the GM work programme to deliver world class diagnostics across the conurbation.

As a member of HInM’s Programme Management Office (undertaking a broader programme of innovation and improvement activity, as required), the post-holder will have a specific remit for leading and managing a programme of work for Precision Medicine across Greater Manchester.

The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic team that design and implement large-scale adoption of innovation and improvement programmes across Greater Manchester.  Working alongside Professor Christopher Griffiths (HInM Precision Medicine Lead), the candidate will have significant knowledge of Precision Medicine, demonstrable experience of programme and change management and improvement methodology, along with practical experience and evidence of supporting and facilitating health innovation and improvement in an academic or healthcare setting. Highly developed motivational, influencing and negotiating skills, along with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively at all levels with a wide range of stakeholders, both verbally and in the written form would be suitable for such a post.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
