At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills. UCLH prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), situated in the West End of London, is a high profile and innovative NHS foundation trust providing first-class acute and specialist services to patients both locally and from throughout the UK and abroad.

Due to maternity leave we have a vacancy for an Assistant Contracts Manager in our contracting team until the end of July 2019.

We are looking for a high-calibre professional to manage our transactional relationship with CCG commissioners.  This is a key role that underpins the contracting function and supports the income and accounts receivable functions within the Trust.

You will have a thorough understanding of the NHS commissioning landscape and you will also have an understanding of how to be effective when working in a large, complex and multi-faceted organisation such as UCLH.

You will have a detailed knowledge of the national tariff payment system and the NHS standard contract. You will be organised, methodical and have a keen attention to detail.  You will be highly numerate and be able to analyse, interpret and present complex information in a simple and effective manner, to provide valuable management information for the organisation.

At UCLH we believe that contracts should be used as a key enabler to improving patient care and patient experience.  We are looking for somebody who shares this philosophy and wants to make a difference.

Please note this role’s fixed term contract is for the purpose of covering maternity leave and therefore the end date is subject to change in line with this.
