Date posted:


Are you looking for an opportunity to work at the cutting edge of public service reform? If yes, then our client could be the right move for you.

Our client is seeking highly-professional, self-motivated and ambitious individual to join their successful and growing team. They are specifically looking for someone to lead their NHS business development drive.

Managing Consultant (NHS): Full-Time Permanent – Salary range – £70-90k (depending on experience) plus bonus and benefits.

Their main offices are in London and Bristol – they are recruiting to both offices.

They are a supportive team, where everyone’s opinion is valued and as such you will be empowered to take responsibility for your work whilst enjoying the support of the rest of the team. As with all members of our team, the successful candidate will have periodic opportunities to buy shares in the company and will be eligible for pension and private health benefits following a successful probation period. 

What They do

Operating nationally, they are a small but growing socially-focused consultancy with a big reputation. Their approach is based on their knowledge and commitment to public services and a ‘can do’ spirit which our clients (mostly central government, councils and the NHS) believe sets us apart from other consultancies.

They have built our reputation on designing and implementing innovative and entrepreneurial new delivery models for public services which enable them to be more “business like” whilst maintaining a strong public service ethos. These new delivery models have usually taken the form of publicly-owned or independent social enterprises e.g. an adult social care service operating as a staff-owned mutual or an entire children’s services function moving to a publicly-owned new company.

But their service offering is much wider than this… They support senior leaders and commissioners to develop overarching Strategies for services. Their team provides Service Transformation and Performance Improvement advice to design and implement the best systems and practice. We also work with established organisations who deliver public services (like charities and social enterprises) to help them grow through winning new contracts, partnership working, investment or demonstrating impact.

The majority of their work has been with Central Government and Councils but they have worked within the NHS and have a developing network of contacts. They see a clear need for our expertise in new delivery and operating models as local areas look to implement their STPs.

Role description: 
Working independently or as part of a team, our Managing Consultants can expect to be involved in/leading a range of projects at any one time providing hands-on support to public service commissioners and front-line teams. Many of our projects also involve coaching and mentoring senior public service staff as they implement change. This particular role will be focused on leading their business development drive within the NHS and in health and social care integration more broadly.

The successful candidate will have:

  • A passion for public services

  • A good degree or equivalent with experience working in a consulting / public service delivery environment is essential.

  • Experience of working for/in the NHS is essential

  • Demonstrable experience of managing projects and teams as well as building successful relationships with clients and delivery partners

  • Demonstrable experience of delivering strategic advice and change to public service organisations

  • Experience in business planning

  • Well-developed coaching and mentoring skills

  • strong networking and business development skills, including the production of successful bids and proposals

  • A detailed understanding of major themes in public service reform

  • Be able to interpret complex data (both hard and soft data, including numerical and statistical information)

  • Have demonstrable experience of facilitating groups and presenting confidently and persuasively to larger audiences

  • Be comfortable with travel and the possibility of overnight stays within the UK
