The Role: Clinical Project Manager
We work closely with organisations who wish to activate a population that they support to embrace digital health solutions as a means of better managing their overall health and wellbeing or any specific conditions that they have. At the heart of this is a suite of innovative digital tools that support this drive and make finding, comparing and using Digital Health much simpler.

We also have a suite of Professionally focussed solutions that support the integration of digital health solutions into day to day clinical and care practice and pathways.
Our clients include, health and care organisations in the UK and wider afield, charities, universities, colleges and schools and major employers.
The Clinical Project Manager role is all about supporting the implementation, roll out and ongoing support of our products and services across this diverse client base. This is much more than a ‘task and finish’ style approach. Our Clinical Project Managers are a key part of the success of each client engagement and service implementation, they are required to understand the specific needs of each client and support them to develop a practical and effective strategy for the roll out of our services. They are of course required to effectively manage the practical steps in an implementation, but nurturing relationships with a diverse array of client representatives, both clinical and none clinical is equally crucial and the key to achieving this successfully.
This team are on the front line on a daily basis, working in GP surgeries, hospitals, care providers and the like, with a wide array of clinical and none clinical teams and often with direct engagement with patients and service users. They also however work directly with System Leaders and Senior Managers within the client organisations and need to be able to operate at all of these levels with confidence.
They are very much seen as experts in the area of Digital Health and the application of this amazing new frontier in medicine to the day to day challenges of modern day healthcare systems and are required to be proactive in their engagement style and approach, helping clients to reach practical and effective integration, activation and engagement strategies.
No two days are the same with a hugely diverse array of clients, stakeholders and areas of focus ensuring that every day brings a new set of challenges and opportunities to grow.
What do you need?
The most crucial skill you will need for this role is relationship management. Whilst great project management capabilities are a given, if you are not able to forge strong relationships across a wide array of stakeholders this isn’t the role for you. If however, you are really a people person and love to meet new people and take on new challenges, this could be the role for you.
You will need in addition however great energy and enthusiasm for healthcare in general and the world of Digital Health in particular. You don’t need to be an expert in Digital Health now. We will provide a lot of training and support to ensure you have all the knowledge and insights you will need, but a genuine interest in the area is essential.
A clinical background, or deep understanding of the health and care environment – including an understanding of the front-line delivery approaches and challenges – is also crucial. To be genuinely expert in Digital Health, requires you to firstly understand the wider health and care context in which these great solutions can sit. Being able to talk to health and care professionals at all levels, about their world is a key part of this.
We are a friendly bunch and very much try to foster a fun and supportive environment. It is however fast paced and we are constantly in a change cycle as we iterate and reiterate what we do to support new clients, new jurisdictions and to take account of the constantly changing and developing environment we are working in, so if change isn’t your thing, it’s probably not the place for you.
On a more practical front, this role while notionally based in our amazing offices in Daresbury, Cheshire will require a lot of travel to support projects across the UK. We will wherever possible work to ensure that members of the team are covering sensible geographic areas relating to their home location, but it’s important that you can easily manage the travel commitments and can work flexibly enough to support the different challenges and priorities.
