About the role

Our VCSE Alliance aims to influence and facilitate greater collaboration between the regional health system (Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care System – BNSSG ICS) and the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE) by enhancing the role of the VCSE sector in the delivery and transformation of wellbeing and health, and cementing our sector’s role as a key strategic partner in the planning, design and delivery of health and care, in its widest possible definition.

To enable this ambition, the interim VCSE Alliance Steering Group has envisaged an inclusive and broad model of different levels of VCSE engagement across the BNSSG area, building on existing foundations.

The Strategic Programme Manager’s role is to move this model into a well-articulated and clear process, alongside robust governance procedures. The role will help the VCSE Alliance to work collaboratively with a diverse range of stakeholders, through the creation, development and maintenance of the inclusive BNSSG VCSE Alliance that is effective at system, place, locality and community-of-interest level.

The VCSE Alliance interim Steering Group has recognised that the development and maintenance of a single point of access for the VCSE Alliance is critical so that relationships, expectations and communications with stakeholders are effectively managed. We also aspire to a distributed leadership model, and the Strategic Programme Manager role will work closely with us to pioneer this.

Initially for twelve months, this Strategic Programme Manager role, along with the supporting roles, will continue and refine the momentum of the VCSE Alliance Steering Group in this important and influential role, benefiting people and communities of the BNSSG area.
