COVID-19 Vacancy Clinical Service Manager

Band 8b



Job overview

We're looking for an experienced professional senior healthcare manager to support the Dorset wide vaccination programme for Dorset Health Care NHS Trust. 

The post holder will work as the clinical services manager of dynamic teams in delivering a safe and effective service for the mass delivery of vaccinations across all age groups across Dorset. You’ll be responsible for clinical and non-clinical oversight of our sites and its operational planning and delivery.

Based at Kings Park, the postholder is expected to work across other fixed and peripatetic bases during the week. Flexibility to travel across Dorset will be necessary.  

Employment in this post requires a Standard Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. 


Main duties of the job

Currently registered as a healthcare professional and with senior management experience, you'll be a strong and supportive leader to ensure clinical governance, compliance and quality is at the forefront of our patient centred approach.  Accountable for clinical standards, you'll ensure that robust systems are in place for clinical supervision and development, ensuring that teamwork and staff management is undertaken in line with Trust values.

You'll use your excellent communication skills to manage, lead and develop the vaccination teams across Dorset. You'll help develop initiatives, collaborating with stakeholders such as NHSE&I and Dorset NHS amongst others, to increase vaccination uptake including hard to reach communities.

Whilst having a strong operational focus, you'll also contribute to the delivery of the Dorset System vaccinations programme strategy. This includes future planning of the National COVID vaccination Programme which continues to evolve and expand. Working in partnership with Commissioners, Lead Clinicians, Advisors and other Senior Managers in partner organisations including cross agency working will form a key part of your role.

Working for our organisation

At Dorset HealthCare we’re on a mission to empower people to make the most of their lives through our outstanding, joined-up healthcare services. We’re a dynamic, forward-looking Trust, running 12 community hospitals, specialist inpatient facilities and a wide range of integrated community and mental health services for a population of almost 800,000 people. We do things differently here – it’s one of the reasons the CQC rated us ‘outstanding’ in 2019. It’s also why 95% of patients across our services say they have a good or very good experience of our services and 89% of staff feel they can really make a difference. Whether you’re looking to work with us in one of our bustling market towns, vibrant urban locations, thriving seaside spots, or among the rolling hills of Dorset, there are lots of ways you can make a difference in our communities. Our 7,000-strong workforce is at the heart of what we do and our success is a testament to our brilliant people. We're all about building a workplace for the future, we believe in equal opportunities and we celebrate diversity. We’re an inclusive workplace, where everyone is welcome, everyone can be authentic, and we are all encouraged to be the best version of ourselves.
Working with us you’ll be part of a strong team, challenge yourself, build a career, and teach us what we don’t know. And you’ll be working towards our vision to be better every day through excellence, compassion and expertise in all we do.
