This is an exciting opportunity to join the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership in a permanent role, using your skills and experience to drive innovation and change and help to deliver quality and sustainable services for the citizens of Edinburgh.

We are seeking a skilled individual, with excellent leadership skills, who can coordinate and manage a significant programme of change. You will work with the Service Director Strategic Planning, to provide strategic advice and guidance to the Chief Officer and wider Executive Management Team and the Edinburgh Integration Joint Board.

You will be responsible for ensuring robust business cases and clear plans are developed, risks and dependencies are well-managed and benefits are realised.

You will be well-organised, flexible in your approach and with strong problem-solving skills and the ability to use your initiative to find solutions.

Your role will involve working with a wide range of managers, clinicians, professionals and partners to identify, develop and deliver proposals, so you will need strong communication skills and the ability to present complex information with confidence.

If you believe you have the experience, energy and enthusiasm to take on these challenges, we would welcome your application. If you would like an informal discussion about the role, please contact Tony Duncan, Service Director Strategic Planning via email at
