The Bay Health & Care Partners’ (BH&CP) Careers & Engagement Team is responsible for designing and delivering recruitment and engagement projects across South Cumbria and North Lancashire. We work in partnership with healthcare professionals, young people, education providers and a range of other organisations, in order to:

  • Deliver a programme of engagement activity to showcase careers and opportunities across the healthcare system;
  • Support and organise events and projects to inspire our local communities to consider careers in health and care;
  • Inspire future generations and dispel myths about the NHS;
  • Remove barriers and create opportunities for those who otherwise might have been prevented access;
  • Share knowledge and good practice with other Careers & Engagement Teams across the North West.

An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual to support the busy team as a full-time Project Facilitator to cover a Maternity leave of 12 months.

The Project Facilitator will provide comprehensive project support to the BH&CP Careers & Engagement Team. You will need to be flexible and innovative in your approach with excellent interpersonal and organisational skills. Experience of public speaking is essential, and you should have good facilitation and/or training skills. You should be able to multi-task and handle a number of projects/tasks simultaneously in order to meet deadlines. You should be able to work independently and as part of a team.

This role requires a confident and approachable person, who is able to communicate tactfully and effectively with staff, members of the public and young people. You should feel passionate about making a difference and supporting our local communities. The role of Project Facilitator will also include responsibility for the production of communications, resources and reports. You should have good IT skills, initiative, creativity, and a keen eye for detail.

You will be based mostly in Lancaster, but the role will require independent travel across the Morecambe Bay area in order to attend meetings and events.

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
