The Personal Health Record and Citizen Identity Programmes form part of P2020 Domain A. The vision of Domain A is - "Transforming the way patients and the public experience the NHS through new digital services and tools that will help them to take control of their own health and care and reduce pressure on frontline services."

Citizen Identity will provide citizens with a single verified online identity that can be used to log into multiple online health and social care digital services. It is critical to enabling the infrastructure for many other P2020 programmes and could be used by other NHS Digital services and systems, local initiatives, and other Government organisations.

The Citizen ID programme has recently combined with Personal Health Record (PHR) which aims to bring together health information, enable patient self-management and monitoring of health and wellbeing and enable interaction between the patient and health and care services. This creates an opportunity for the health and care system to engage with the patients in innovative ways that can support new models of care and self-care.

The programme uses agile (scrum) as its main delivery method with the team organised into squads. We are a vibrant team working on the main principles of research, learn and validate.

About the role

Forming part of the Citizen Identity and Personal Health Records agile team, the Project Officer will support the delivery and programme teams with planning and organisation. This will include both traditional reporting and planning and agile techniques. The role holder will ensure the product backlogs (JIRA) and sprint boards are maintained and ensure deliverables are centrally recorded and communicated.

The role holder will work in a vibrant team, with a number of opportunities to develop further skills and experience in both project management and agile delivery.

About you

You will have a demonstrable track record of supporting the delivery of agile and waterfall projects within a large, complex organisation and will be highly motivated with excellent communication skills. You will also need to demonstrate appropriate leadership skills and be able to solve problems as they arise.

Your background in project management and support should include information or information technology related deliveries. Proficient in the use of project management techniques (specifically agile methodologies) and processes in the delivery of projects you will understand the differences and overlaps between project, programme and portfolio management.

About the rewards

In addition to a competitive salary you can look forward to an excellent contributory pension scheme, generous holiday entitlement and various flexible working options. Perhaps the most compelling reasons for joining us, however, are the scale, scope and high profile nature of the projects you'll be working on, and the unprecedented opportunity for personal and professional development. Interviews are likely to be held in July.
