At the Royal College of Nursing, we're an optimistic organisation. And we've got the good reason to be. We all share the same voice when it comes to changing the shape of the health policies of the future. And as the largest trade union of nursing staff and students in the UK - with around 435,000 members - all we can see are the infinite possibilities for a brighter future. Join us and you will too. 

We're number 15 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations to work for, with Two Star Best Companies Accreditation for 2017 and are accredited by Investors in People Gold Standard.

As our Quality Improvement Project Facilitator, you'll use your positive attitude, your knowledge of stakeholder management and your ability to deliver projects to support our quality improvement activity. The work is based on improvement methodology, using a 'Plan, Do, Study, Act' (PDSA) approach as part of the breakthrough improvement model.

You will have the opportunity to work with a range of stakeholders from across the organisation - including staff and members - to improve the experiences of our RCN representatives and promote wider member engagement. Your work will support our aim to promote and value the contribution of our representatives, ensuring they feel valued, acknowledged and supported in their practice. You will be able to use a range of creative approaches to identifying how we can improve the experience of our RCN Reps across the UK, and encourage wider member engagement to support their activity.

As our Quality Improvement Project Facilitator, you'll manage some organisational wide projects. A key part of what you do will be to work with a range of stakeholders to identify great ideas for improvement and the means to make them happen.

We expect you to look after our members. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. As well as a whole range of learning and development opportunities we can also offer you an impressive range of benefits. We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days pro rata.

Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. All employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact on their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.

The ability to foster strong professional relationships and encourage close collaboration between departments is at the heart of this leadership role.

To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything's possible.
