Information & Business Systems Support Manager

Cardiff University - School of Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education

An exciting opportunity has arisen to create the role of Information & Business Systems Support Manager, which will have managerial responsibility for two teams fundamental to the success of Wales Deanery activities and the transition into Health Education Improvement Wales (HEIW).

Please be aware of the following development in relation to the Wales Deanery:

In November 2016, the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Well-being and Sport announced his intention to set up a single body to commission all health-related workforce education and training, mapped to an agreed, nationally-coordinated NHS workforce strategy: Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW).

The creation of HEIW represents a new strategic approach to developing the healthcare workforce across Wales for now and in the years to come.

Staff in the Wales Deanery (and Workforce Education and Development Services (WEDS) and Wales Centre for Pharmacy Professional Education (WCPPE)) are expected to be transferred under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (TUPE) arrangements out of Cardiff University and into this new body, a Special Health Authority (an NHS organisation), in October 2018. To clarify, when the transfer takes place, Wales Deanery staff will no longer be employed by Cardiff University.

The location of the HEIW offices has not yet been determined and it is expected that the Wales Deanery will continue to be based at UHW until late 2018.

You are required to evidence/demonstrate, in a supporting statement, how you fulfil each of the Essential and Desirable criteria shown on the Person Specification.

Please be aware that Cardiff University reserves the right to close this vacancy early should sufficient applications be received.

Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who have the ambition to create a University which seeks to fulfil our social, cultural and economic obligation to Cardiff, Wales, and the world.  In supporting our employees to achieve a balance between their work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
