The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York is a world-leading research-only department with a successful track record of health economics research spanning almost 40 years. It has around 60 research staff and an annual income of close to £6 million raised almost entirely from external competitive grant funding from a wide range of funders.
The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) wishes to appoint an experienced Project Manager to support and manage the CHE-led Health Foundation REAL Supply Unit. This ambitious, multi-faceted project is in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen, the University of Kent and the Scottish Policy and Research Exchange. The project is split into two phases, spanning seven years in total, and will focus on working with key stakeholders, academic experts, and the general public to identify the long-term drivers of Health & Care supply and associated evidence gaps.
Please note this is a fixed-term contract until 31 January 2025 (subject to funding, with possible extension to 31 January 2030)
As Project Manager you will support the Unit Director and senior academics on the successful management of the REAL Supply Unit, working closely with our collaborating partners and stakeholders.
As an active member of the Unit’s management team you will help develop and promote the Unit’s identity and research strategy; identify and manage project risks; be involved in resource planning and financial reporting; co-design the Unit’s governance structure and communication channels; develop effective monitoring and evaluation tools; as well as managing and coordinating the unit’s capacity building, training and engagement activities. You will line manage any unit-dedicated support staff and provide supervision of any unit activities being delivered by other support staff, both within CHE and in other organisations.
Should the unit be extended to 31st January 2030, you will assist with the submission of the Unit’s Phase 2 research proposals and ensure future project management capacity for any agreed projects, sub-projects, scholarships and internships.
Interview date: 24 April 2023
