We have an exciting new opportunity for a Service Delivery Manager's to support our Acute Paediatrics and Gynaecology Service management teams. You will enjoy problem solving and want a role that presents you with fresh opportunities regularly. You will be organised and work in a methodical manner as you will need to provide responsive and effective management support to the specialist services across both acute sites.

Main duties of the job

The roles entail operational delivery, financial management, service development & improvement and the implementation and monitoring of national policies including RTT targets and Key Performance Indicator requirements.

The post holders will have a degree of autonomy at the service level and will work on service development and service transformation, working closely with the General Manager, Service Manager and Clinical Leads.

This is expected to be a challenging role to meet the service demands, so experience within Paediatrics or Gynaecology will be an advantage but it is not essential.

You should be able to demonstrate all the criteria outlined in the person specification but also demonstrate a desire to develop this role and deliver excellence and quality in all operational and strategic objectives for the specialty areas.
