Salford CVS (on behalf of 10GM - a joint venture between Salford CVS, Macc, Bolton CVS and Action Together) along with our partners Voluntary Sector North West, Unique Improvements, and BHA for Equality have been delivering a VCSE-led Greater Manchester-wide cancer screening engagement programme on behalf of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership since April 2019. Our original Programme Manager recently moved on to a new position and so we are looking to recruit an experienced, knowledgeable and passionate Programme Manager (.8 post) to lead us on the next two years of our journey.

The delivery of this programme is an opportunity for our partnership to build upon our collective experience in this field, our extensive community development track record and strategic commitment to asset-based models of building resilient communities and creating meaningful partnerships.

Our model of delivery is intended to generate additional social value by building capacity across VCSE networks, strengthening co-production approaches with communities and creating multiplier effects across wider health and wellbeing outcomes. 

Overview of the area of work

  • Development and day-to-day strategic and operational management of the GM Answer Cancer Programme
  • Performance monitoring and analysis of the whole programme
  • Financial monitoring of all aspects of programme delivery, supported by the Deputy Chief Executive (Finance & Resources)
  • Progress and performance reporting to the SRO (Senior Responsible Officer), your Line Manager  and key stakeholders, including the programme’s Partnership Board and Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) commissioners ​
