Permanent, Full Time – 36 hours a week
Salary: £44,080 – £47,969
The Nursing and Midwifery Council sets and regulates standards of education, training, conduct and performance for nurses and midwives in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and supports the delivery of high quality and consistent healthcare. Dynamic regulation is central to our work, and our energies are focused on promoting standards of care and practice, protecting patients and the public effectively and efficiently.
As Policy Manager, you’ll lead on the analysis of political, healthcare and regulatory developments that could impact directly or indirectly on the functions of NMC. You’ll develop evidence-based policies across our regulatory functions, identifying any emerging issues or potential gaps and ensuring we respond quickly to changes in legislation, heath policy or other influencing factors. It’s a wide remit that could include issues as diverse as assessment levels for nurses and midwives, or the potential impact of Brexit on our professions. You’ll produce formal policy responses to engage key decision-makers in government and with other stakeholders, and build strong professional relationships with colleagues in the Department of Health and other regulatory bodies. You’ll ensure that our policies are well informed and legally sound, commissioning research and legal advice as required to support this.
It’s an opportunity that demands previous experience in developing and implementing regulatory policy, and an understanding of the value of stakeholder engagement. You’ll need excellent all-round communication skills – in person and in writing, and to be able to build rapport and trust with multiple stakeholders. It’s essential that you are well organised and self sufficient – able to manage different projects and priorities simultaneously. As well as being degree educated (or equivalent), you should also offer strengths in critical reasoning, analytical and conceptual-thinking.
We offer a full range of benefits, that includes:
- 30 days’ holiday and eight days’ paid bank holidays
- flexible working arrangements
- child care vouchers
- cycle to work
- staff discounts with high street retailers
- subsidised on-site restaurant
- season ticket loans
- BUPA regulated Employee Assistance Programme
