Barts Health NHS Trust
Salary: £39,885 - £49,704 per annum inc
Location: Prescot Street, London
Closing date: 17 January 2019
With a turnover of £1.4 billion and a workforce of around 16,000, Barts Health is the largest NHS trust in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers. The Trust’s five hospitals – St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City, including the Barts Heart Centre, The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, Newham University Hospital in Plaistow, Whipps Cross University Hospital in Leytonstone and Mile End – deliver high quality compassionate care to the 2.5 million people of East London and beyond.
We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic and highly motivated band 7 public affairs communications manager to join our team on a 13 month maternity cover. It is an exciting time to join our Trust as we continue on our journey to deliver safe and compassionate care to more than 6,000 patients every single day across one of the largest NHS trusts in the UK.
You will be responsible for engaging our external stakeholders, including politicians and key opinion formers within the health community, with a view to understanding their views and priorities, developing their awareness and understanding of our role, and keeping them informed of important developments while ensuring we meet our statutory duties.
We are specifically looking for people with experience leading stakeholder engagement in a large and complex organisation with multiple sites. NHS experience is not essential, although it is desirable. Experience working in a large charity would also be viewed favourably. We would also welcome people that are interested in joining us as a secondment. We are a busy team, so creativity and a can-do attitude are essential attributes of the successful candidate.
