Role Description

Department of Health Sciences

In 2019, the National Health Service (NHS) Long Term Plan outlined the need to ensure health and care services had enough qualified and experienced staff.  More people than ever before want to train as health and care professionals; this means more learners should expect access to a timely, high-quality placement and learning experience.  

NHS investment has been awarded to the Humber Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership Integrated Care System (ICS) with the specific purpose of increasing the number of clinical placements for Non-Medical Health and Care professionals.  This will enable the ICS, to deliver the future health and care workforce in sufficient numbers and with the skills they need. 

  • Are you seeking a role that enables you to positively influence and coordinate clinical placement expansion through alternative placement models in new environments?  
  • Are you someone who wants to make a significant difference to the way our future health and care workforce learn? 
  • Do you want to increase clinical placement capacity through digital innovation as an alternative placement experience and support people to develop their digital literacy skills?

If the answer is yes, we would like to hear from you! 


These fixed term Project Management posts (5 Full Time Equivalents) are hosted by the University of York, a member of the Russell Group and active member of the ICS who will benefit from this role.  The successful candidate will work collaboratively with other Higher Education Institutes, Health and Care providers across a large geographical region to deliver and evaluate new learning environments and alternative student placement models.
