Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. Will the Authority consider extending the latest start date from 11th May 2018? The Authority has considered this request and are extending the latest start date from 11th May 2018 to 21st May 2018.
2. Could the role operate on a physical basis of being 50:50 split between being on-site in NHS Digital offices between Leeds and London? As per published documents, the location will be predominantly LEEDS based with some occasional travel to London. The majority of the current team are LEEDS based to this enables a closer and more collaborative approach.

So we would be unable to accept a 50% split with Leeds and London.

The extract from the documents published is quite clear on this:

Some travel will be required to London to meet with Programme Sponsors and their teams as well as travel to relevant events and meetups
Role will be largely onsite in Leeds to enable face to face collaboration with internal teams
3. How important is experience in Health/Social Care sector? An individual with experience in Healthcare would be preferential. However, should a suitable candidate with all the other skills, knowledge and experiences be presented, then this may outweigh the need for Healthcare experience.
