We are at a key stage in the implementation of our workplan, with the focus over the next few years on supporting improvement across primary care settings including health and social care. This work will be innovative and complex and these roles will be instrumental in engaging with a variety of health and social care organisations to deliver this programme of work.

Successful candidates will demonstrate expertise in the design and delivery of improvement programmes and knowledge in the application of improvement methodology in a variety of care settings.

Candidates should be educated to Masters level, or have equivalent training in an aspect of implementation and improvement science or extensive practical experience of supporting implementation and improvement programmes.
