LINC has procured a new laboratory information management system (LIMS) service for 21 laboratories across Wales providing Andrology, Blood Sciences, Blood Transfusion.

An opportunity has arisen for a Programme Managers to support the implementation of the new laboratory information management system (LIMS) to all pathology services across Wales.

Applicants will be qualified in PRINCE2 and Managing Successful Programmes and have experience of managing multiple projects within a programme or portfolio. They will have excellent personal and interpersonal skills, able to engage with stakeholders at all levels especially within the Pathology service and DHCW. Having experience of using MS Project is essential to maintain project plans. They will be able to produce high quality documentation showing attention to detail and the application of MSP / PRINCE2 to the programme.
Although staff are currently working at home, there is a requirement to be on-site for team meetings and at the dedicated health boards. Travel and overnight stay may therefore be essential to carry out the role.
The posts would be suitable for someone who wishes to develop themselves within this field and therefore secondment would be considered. Please note that you would require approval from your Line Manager prior to applying for this post to release you for secondment.
This a two-year fixed term post. It is anticipated that staff will be based at River House although the NHS Wales Health Collaborative has staff bases around Wales.
