Practice Development Unit (PDU) Events Coordinator

The role is initially for 12 months with a possible extension dependent on funding. Secondments will be considered.

Hours: Full time, 35 hours per week
Salary: £26,945 to £29,945 per annum
Closing date: 12 noon on Monday 15 April 2024
Interviews: week commencing 22 April 2024

We are looking for an individual who can support the development and growth of the Practice Development Unit (PDU) so its learning offer can engage with and reach a broad cross-sector audience, in close collaboration with voluntary and statutory sector partners. NCVS has hosted the PDU in partnership since 2017, originally with Opportunity Nottingham and since 2022 with Nottingham Changing Futures.

We have secured funding to develop the PDU learning offer and to upgrade and relaunch our online hub. This is an exciting opportunity to support the PDU in its next phase of development, to grow our membership to influence system change and embed the PDU as a shared learning tool and resource for the local system.

This role will help ensure that people working in Nottingham and surrounding areas understand how to best support people who experience Severe Multiple Disadvantage (SMD), and that services and staff from a wide range of organisations feel confident to deliver approaches that work.

The role involves:

  • Coordinating PDU meetings and learning events to ensure a thriving, productive and cooperative practice development unit.
  • Supporting the delivery and facilitation of ongoing communities of practice to influence system change agenda, ensuring learning does not remain siloed from the wider membership.
  • Curating learning series and events so that PDU members can develop core knowledge and understanding of priority topics relevant to SMD.
  • Attending partnership meetings and relevant networks to strengthen PDU alliances and help grow PDU engagement and membership.
  • Encouraging partners to contribute expertise/learning to the PDU and to regard the platform as a shared resource of the local system that is valued and peer-led.
  • Supporting regular reporting and monitoring of PDU events.

Our ideal candidate will understand why a system wide approach is needed to address health inequalities experienced by people with SMD and be committed to partnership and multi-disciplinary working in order to achieve this.

People with lived experience of SMD are central to the Changing Futures programme. It is therefore important that your values reflect what people with lived experience of SMD want to see from those working in the programme.
