Location: UK, Manchester
Company: NHS Blood and Transplant
Reporting to the Head of Business Continuity Management, the role involves the management of the day to day resilience and business continuity requirements of NHSBT, and ensuring compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements. The role also involves the management of elements of the ISO22301 certification programme.
The post holder will deliver training, facilitate exercises and represent NHSBT with external stakeholders, and there will also be a need to engage and influence senior management. The post holder therefore will require excellent presentational skills, both verbal and written.
Working frequently with minimal supervision, the post holder will need to be a self- starter, driven to excellence and with the proven ability to negotiate and influence at all levels. Although based at Manchester, the role will not have any specific geographical responsibilities and as such considerable travel across the NHSBT estate is likely and overnights stays will be required on a regular basis.
There will be a requirement for the post holder within the first year in post, to achieve a professional qualification in Business Continuity Management which will involve some self-directed study.
You will be required to participate in an on-call out of hours rota which may include evening, weekend or public holiday working
