Project yourself in to Health in Justice!

Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 3 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2019 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.

As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.

Our core values are; everyone makes a difference, patients are at the heart of everything we do and together we make things better. If you share these values and have transferable skills we want to meet you!

A bit about the role...

As Project Manager, you'll be part of the Health and Justice Project Team, working alongside the National Project Manager to manage and deliver on projects and mobilisations (new services).

You'll be pivotal in the implementation of new service innovations, representing Care UK at external stakeholder meetings with Commissioners and other business partners.

This role will be home based but you will be required to travel across all of Health in Justice sites for meetings, with overnight travel.
Health in Justice have 43 prison healthcare sites, as well as regional offices in Reading, Leeds, Wolverhampton and London (Putney).

This is a full-time role, working 37.5 hours per week, though flexibility is required when it comes to project deadlines and new service mobilisations etc.
The salary for this role is £32,000-£35,000 FTE per annum - dependent on experience.

We can offer you:
• A competitive salary
• 25 days annual leave + 8 public holidays
• Car allowance
• Company pension scheme
• Cycle to Work scheme
• Online shopping discounts

A bit about you...

You'll hold either Prince 2 or equivalent project management qualification, with experience in project management and change management. Experience of working within the healthcare sector (NHS or private) is highly advantageous.

You'll be able to demonstrate your experience using project management tools and reviewing methods, as well as the have the ability to work independently to achieve deadlines in a fast paced environment.

It goes without saying that you'll have excellent communication and rapport building skills with internal and external stakeholders - core project team and work-stream leads, HiJ senior management team, sub-contractors and service providers, commissioners and other internal teams.
