Contract Project Manager

Self-employed contractor:  budget £54,000 over 27 months, including VAT

Contract length: 27 months from October 2021 – January 2024

Hours of work: average 2-3 days per week during the set-up phase, 1-2 days a week once the work packages are established.

Base: home working – with occasional travel for project visits

Reporting to: Head of grants and research

We are seeking an experienced contract delivery manager to be responsible for the overall management of the ‘Tackling Covid-linked health inequalities in North Central London’ project. The postholder will be working with a broad range of stakeholders, partner organisations and local delivery partners to ensure delivery of the work packages is to time and budget.

Previous experience of project delivery management and stakeholder engagement is essential. Local knowledge of the target delivery areas (Tottenham and Edmonton) is desirable.

The purpose of the role

The projects cover three themes agreed in consultation with our NHS charity peers in North Central London: culturally appropriate mental health supports for young people, especially young Black men; support for those affected by long Covid in the most deprived communities; and tackling digital exclusion in the most deprived communities which prevents engagement with increasingly tech-enabled health and other services.

The RFC is the lead charity for this initiative on behalf of the 14 NHS charities in North Central London ICS. The role will involve working with the ICS inequalities team and three local umbrella groups to identify, fund and support up to 20 grassroots charities embedded in these communities across two years.

The project will support a range of communities who are not always well served by the standard NHS and statutory offer and who have been disproportionately impacted by Covid. Co-production will be an important element of delivery.

If you feel excited by this opportunity, we would like to hear from you.
