We save money for the NHS.

We are very proud to be part of the NHS Supply Chain family and the savings we generate directly benefit the patient.

We are a Limited Liability Partnership formed in 2018 and we have huge plans for growth. There has never been a more exciting time to join us.

The Role:

We are looking for a healthcare professional or relevant industry professional to join our team as a Clinical Engagement & Implementation Manager (CEIM). This role is based from home with regular national travel and will represent our Minimally Invasive Surgery Clinical remit and successful candidates will work with multiple clinical and non-clinical stakeholders from across the NHS and Industry.

Using your clinical/product experience and knowledge,your role has responsibility for engaging with healthcare, divisional and procurement professionals in NHS Trusts and providers to: –  Understand their requirements for products based on their current operating preferences, sub-specialty practices, clinical environment and any key issues which may hinder progress.  You will support them in making savings for their area through effective clinical engagement and procurement initiatives in line with CPP rationalisation and standardisation processes.

Build and manage relationships with Supplier / Industry professionals, in particular when working on projects with relevant NHS Trusts.

Build and manage effective relationships with healthcare professionals within NHS organisations/providers to ensure the clinical “voice” is captured when product specifications are developed, and options for clinical change are put forward.  Provide project leadership and support, ensuring the delivery of quality services that represent best value and understand the key strategic direction of the tower in order to ensure that processes are adhered to and projects are effectively managed with a clear understanding across different stakeholders.

Work with clinicians to optimise their product base and care delivery through product change and service provision, whilst ensuring patient centric care is the focus.

Lead on product evaluations with individual or groups of NHS Trusts, developing product specifications as necessary and data analytics to support the decision-making process, ensuring key personnel from any NHS Trust project are engaged and informed.  Participate in and develop own clinical forums and networks to ensure CPP is appropriately represented and engaged in best practice and up-to-date thinking on products and services.  Produce and update project documentation including status reports, ensuring key documentation is up-to-date.

Take shared responsibility for Supplier Relationship Management with the rest of the CEIM team, to build on the partnership with Industry and allow for a better supported process in delivering projects across the NHS.

Who you are:


We are looking for a professional with exceptional communication and stakeholder management skills.  A person with the ability to process information, understand clinical needs, drivers, patient demographics and user experience.  An individual who can gain credibility with clinicians due to product and clinical knowledge, and professional experience.

A general understanding of procurement and contracting would be advantageous.  An understanding of Minimally Invasive Surgery, through experience, as well as Minimally Invasive Surgery product knowledge is essential.

Have an established network of peers within their clinical environment, and/or with the relevant industry.

Experience of managing projects and understanding how products are used in practice, considering varying sub-specialty areas of care.

IT capable, (in particular with excel) with an analytic and attention to detail competence.

Willingness to travel, you will already be a car driver.

A self-motivated individual, comfortable with managing your own diary, gaps in your understanding will be developed and as such being able to take on a new challenge and develop expertise in relation to products is key.
