The Programme Coordinator for the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Integrated Academic Training (IAT) Programme is a pivotal position within the school's operational framework, supporting the development, delivery, and review of the NIHR IAT programme. The Programme Coordinator will work within the Hull York Medical School’s Executive Office, in partnership with NHS England North East and Yorkshire and a network of regional partners to ensure the programme's efficient and effective operation. 

We are looking for a candidate with proven experience in administrative roles, preferably within the healthcare or education sector, demonstrating the ability to work independently, manage queries, and seek timely solutions to support IAT Programme participants. 

Strong organisational skills and a high attention to detail will be essential for managing the diverse aspects of the programme, including recruitment, budget monitoring, purchasing, and event planning.  You will have excellent communication skills as the main point of contact for the programme and offer advice and support to trainees, supervisors, and trust contacts.  The postholder will have the ability to administer strategic planning processes, such as the NIHR Biennial Bid, and coordinate clinical academic training events, ensuring the programme meets its objectives and adheres to budgetary constraints. 

The successful candidate will be practised in developing and maintaining effective working relationships with multi-agency partners, including NHS Trusts, NHSE, NIHR, and partner universities.  Working within the Executive Office Team, the successful candidate will contribute to the School's wider business and objectives. We support hybrid working arrangements, however presence on campus may be required depending on service needs. The part time position is available at 18.25 hours or 50% FTE.

We are seeking to appoint individuals who align to our values:   

  • Everyone Counts: We promote a culture of diversity, respect and aspiration, and empower everyone to realise their potential.   
  • Pursuing Excellence: We combine a pioneering approach with innovative methods to drive excellence in all we do.
