 Working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust are  working on the delivery of an exciting and evidence based project  to deliver robust and sustainable services for people affected by cancer.

We are looking for a self motivated individual who is able to work autonomously using their  initiative whilst being a team player. You should  have the ability and experience  to challenge conventional thinking in a thoughtful and constructive way with the ability to influence and motivate others. You should have excellent communication skills, be able  to work with complex challenges and create strong partnerships and excellent working relationships throughout the hospitals and wider health community.

The successful candidate will  demonstrate specific examples of where they have previously led successful change drawing on change methodologies and tools.

 Training and support will be provided to enable you to reach your individual potential. You in turn will help develop the talent of all staff engaged in the change process, working alongside them in designing, delivering, writing up and presenting their successes.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
