An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced senior learning manager with substantial experience in the creation of Masters-level education and deploying effective learning technologies to engage remote learners. You will manage the programme to establish a Clinician Researcher Credentials framework (and related academic qualifications) with our university and professional partners.

The NHS needs to develop and retain a much broader cadre of clinician researchers to provide local leadership and delivery of high quality clinical research. We know that patients benefit from receiving care in organisations where clinical staff are involved in research. There is, however, a suboptimal match between the concentration of clinical research and the geographical distribution of disease burden.

The NIHR, which is funded through the Department of Health and Social Care, is fully committed to maintaining a vibrant and dynamic research landscape. Working with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC), Royal College of Physicians and several universities, the NIHR Clinical Research Network is establishing an AoMRC-NIHR accredited framework for inter-professional clinician researcher credentials. This will support the upskilling of experienced clinicians working in everyday settings; enable them to deliver clinical research and develop as local research leaders.

The Senior Learning Manager post is a national role based within the NIHR Clinical Research Network Coordinating Centre (NIHR CRNCC) based in Leeds or London. You will bring a wealth of experience in leading Learning and Organisational Development to the role. You will have the excellent project management, interpersonal and stakeholder engagement skills required to deliver this high profile programme. Experience in developing blended-learning academic qualification programmes would be beneficial, as would insight into master’s level education and workplace learning (particularly in clinical workplaces).

The employer for this role is the University of Leeds
