Reporting to the Head of Business Continuity Management, the role involves the management of the day to day resilience and business continuity requirements of NHSBT, and ensuring compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements. The role also involves the management of elements of the ISO22301 certification programme.

The post holder will deliver training, facilitate exercises and represent NHSBT with external stakeholders, and there will also be a need to engage and influence senior management. The post holder therefore will require excellent presentational skills, both verbal and written.

Working frequently with minimal supervision, the post holder will need to be a self- starter, driven to excellence and with the proven ability to negotiate and influence at all levels.
