NCVS is at the heart of Nottingham’s voluntary sector, and prides itself on keeping the voluntary sector connected to issues affecting it.

NCVS is currently leading the GreenSpace Green Social Prescribing Test and Learn Programme in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. We are seeking an experienced project manager to explore the learning from the GreenSpace programme, creating opportunities to embed the learning into broader social prescribing activity across the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS).

This work will support the ICS to deliver its Personalised Care vision to maximise independence, choice, control, good health, and wellbeing throughout people’s lives, focusing on ‘what matters to them’.

You will also develop a shared local plan for social prescribing using population health management data and partnership working with commissioners, local authorities and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. The aim is to understand how this information could support improving health inequalities. This will include scoping and developing a system wide digital platform for social prescribing and community development.

It has been agreed by the ICS Personalised Care Strategic Oversight Group that this role will be a partnership approach. The role will be line managed by the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) Head of Social Prescribing and will be employed by NCVS.

We are looking for someone with excellent and demonstrable project management skills. You will have experience of community development and experience of working with a wide range of stakeholders, building influential relationships at all levels. You will have an interest in the benefits of social prescribing and green activity, understanding the positive impact this has on wellbeing.
