About the work

Early market engagement
None has taken place.
Who the specialist will work with
Specialist will be working with a small multi-disciplinary team to deliver the programme.

Subject matter experts include programme managers, finance leads, communication leads, commercial leads, benefits leads and technical leads.
What the specialist will work on
Develop a business case using the standard government five-case model (experience of this is essential).

Develop financial forecasting models and an NHS investment justification paper.

Understand and plan activities for NHS approvals and assurance activities which include an iterative process of feedback and redrafting over a number of cycles and by various approving bodies.

Work setup

Address where the work will take place
Principal location will be Leeds, UK (LS1 and LS11 postcode areas), with limited opportunities for working away from these locations occasionally.

There will be a requirement for infrequent (once or twice per month) travel to London for meetings.
Working arrangements
The main objective is to develop a business case for a national initiative that has a very high profile, and ensure that it is successfully passed though the approvals process.

This will mean multiple revisions, with appropriate controls, and liaising with internal and external experts to gather feedback.

Face to face meetings are important, as are meetings with customers and industry suppliers, but we generally work in busy open-plan offices which can make technical document drafting difficult.
Security clearance
Standard NHS Digital ID verification will take place.

Additional terms and conditions
Necessary business travel will be reimbursed.
