DigitalHealth.London Accelerator Project Support Officer

We are looking for a Project Support Officer to support delivery of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to be part of a ground-breaking strategic team, developing the London digital health economy. The successful applicant will combine formal programme administration skills, with the ability to manage relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders.

DigitalHealth.London is a partnership, expert in accelerating the adoption of digital innovation by linking health and care organisations with digital health innovators for the benefit of patients and populations. The ambition is no less than to bring the transformation that we have all seen in our daily lives through digital advances, into London’s NHS. The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator is the first major programme. The programme is designed to provide a cohort of eligible small to medium sized start-ups and SMEs with access to the support they need to innovate and grow – including, uniquely, early access to the NHS.

Despite the array of talent and resources available, market failures related to poor collaboration and coordination between SME’s (SMEs) and the health system are stifling London’s competiveness in digital innovation. The Project Support Officer will work strategically, creatively and flexibly with the Accelerator Team to support administration of the programme. This will involve working with both NHS and Industry partners and liaising with all DHL Accelerator Funding and Strategic partners.

The accelerator programme will:
• Create a connected and supportive innovation ecosystem.
• Help SMEs understand demand, and test innovations from an early stage.
• Provide SMEs with the knowledge and experience to better understand the UK health market – particularly prescribers, clinicians and patients
• Help the NHS to take a vital step towards creating a better environment for digital health businesses to form and flourish
• Establish London as the place to develop next generation digital health products.
• Create jobs and contribute to wider economic growth and wealth creation by bringing new products and processes to market.

The programme is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the successful applicant will need to be able to contribute to the compliance process related to EU funding. The Project Support Officer will be required to support the administration of tasks associated with ERDF compliance, under supervision of the Compliance Manager.

Health Innovation Network

The Accelerator team are hosted by the Health Innovation Network (HIN) - the AHSN for South London. The HIN is hosted by Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

Our diverse membership includes all healthcare providers (community, acute, mental health and primary care), commissioners, local authorities and higher education providers within South London. In all our work programmes there are strong relationships and collaboration with both patient and industry partners.

Interviews will take place in London on Wednesday 12th July. Shortlisted candidates will be informed the week prior.
