The British Heart Foundation's (BHF) primary objective is to fund life-saving research that can help prevent cardiovascular disease. To help to achieve this, the BHF has commenced a project to develop a new central system in order to effectively manage this end-to-end process.

We're looking to recruit a Project Support Officer to lead the coordination of information for this new National Defirbrilator Network (NDN) Programme

As a central clearing house for project/workstream information, you'll be the owner of the management process, coordinating between Project/Workstream level and Programme level to make sure that decision makers have the best information in the most accessible formats.

In addition to this specific project, you'll also support other key projects within the wider IT Programme of work.
