You will have a demonstrable record of service management excellence, information governance and transformational digital innovation and implementation.

With the ability to think strategically and grasp complex policy and political issues, you will have a strong understanding of health and care research policy and practice, and of the opportunities and challenges in maximising health and care research for the benefit of patients and the public.

Your organisational base will be the NIHR CRN Coordinating Centre, with a choice of either Leeds or London locations. The Coordinating Centre encourages flexible working arrangements.

The employer will be the University of Leeds.

Your direct report will be to the CRN Chief Executive Officer.
