How you will make a difference as a LOMP Programme Coordinator

In this new and exciting role, you will be working within a newly created team of professionals to identify, prevent and contain outbreaks of COVID-19 with oversight of testing and contact tracing and swift mobilisation of local testing when required.

You will be part of a team who will oversee and implement the Local Outbreak Management Plan for South Gloucestershire containing the spread of the virus through improved co-ordination at a local and regional level supporting workplaces, care homes, educational establishments, VCS plus our local communities and the people who live there.

You will provide a supporting role within the Public Health Division to help ensure effective programme management and governance arrangements are in place to deliver the Local Outbreak Management Plan.

This will involve gathering and collating project progress information from theme leads, undertaking analysis to ensure it is complete and makes sense, and subsequently preparing governance reports in line with agreed style and procedures. The role will involve recording the actions and decisions at operational groups as well as collating programme information and sensitive case data for operational groups, programme meetings and the Health Protection Assurance Group.

You will ensure there is an auditable process in place for decisions made and may also be required to undertake research and gather relevant information from across the sector and members of the public in line with the COVID-19 contain framework.

What does a typical day look like?

You will be working within an environment of changing priorities and circumstances. This will involve working within tight deadlines and dealing with complex and highly sensitive information from a variety of sources. There will be times when By applying your specialist knowledge, you will make judgements about developing appropriate approaches with outcomes that are monitored and evaluated.

You will be asked to gather different pieces of information and will need to decide on priorities and what needs to be done immediately. This may change as new requirements and demands come in, so you will continually need to manage you work to reflect these. You will need to use your initiative in gathering information from outside parties, e.g. other local authorities, being able to set out questions to ask, interpret information and responses provided and ask supplementary questions depending on these responses. Findings will need to be summarised and presented in a simple way – this requires judgement about what is important/relevant and how best this can be shown.

In gathering information to support programme management and governance, you are likely going to have to communicate at times when individuals do not provide information as required or as expected. In such cases you will need to be persistent but also use your discretion in how best to deal with such cases, e.g. giving the individual more time to provide the information, interpreting the information provided when it has not been provided in the right way.

What we need from you:

You will have experience of working in a relevant specialist environment and ideally be working towards a professional or technical qualification or already be part qualified

You will have experience of using policies, procedures, processes, legislation, and codes of practice in a similar service area.

You will have good literacy skills including written and verbal communication skills with the ability to communicate effectively with customers.

You will have effective numeracy and IT skills.

You will have good team working and relationship building skills.

You will be able to undertake effective research and analysis diagnosing problems and issues, presenting findings by writing clear, accurate and concise documents.

If relevant: you will be able to supervise staff to meet organisational objectives.
