Interim Project Manager


The Department of Health’s Growing Capacity programme aims to set up new surgical and diagnostic units run by independent operators under the jurisdiction of Strategic Health Authorities.

It involves a new approach to procurement, and as a result, the Department of Health needed suitably qualified experts to support NHS commissioners in the development of project specification and invitations to tender. It asked Alium to find an Interim Project Manager to contribute to the formulation of the core contract documentation and work with the relevant Strategic Health Authority and local health trusts to make local refinements.

We identified immediately available senior interim managers with NHS and finance/contracting experience, who could work both with the Department and with local providers. Four candidates were put forward and one selected to work with a University Hospital NHS Trust on the establishment of one of the first Diagnostic and Treatment Centres (DTC).

The interim project manager guided the preparation and signing off of a Memorandum of Information to deliver a fully operative DTC facility onsite at the hospital. The Memorandum of Information was handed over on schedule and specified into the Department of Health central framework, having been endorsed by the NHS commissioners and local clinicians.

Alium is by far and away the most professional interim recruiter I have come across to date."
