NHS Orkney is looking for a suitably experienced IT specialist to join its IT Team on an 18 month secondment basis. This is a secondment opportunity for current NHS employees.
The individual whilst, reporting directly to the Head of eHealth and IT, will work closely with the New Hospital and Healthcare Facility Project Team to:
• advise on the resources required for the upgrade of ICT equipment prior to the move to the new hospital and healthcare facility
• direct the planning and procurement of major ICT infrastructure
• manage the migration planning for the new facility including provision of services across two main sites during the transition period
• liaise with NHS Orkney IT infrastructure and desktop leads on current and future ICT requirements
• be the main contact on ICT requirements for the new facility

The secondee will play a key role in the new build programme, which is heavily dependent on ICT solutions, to deliver NHS Orkney’s eHealth/digital health agenda and to support care and treatment in an Island setting. The build programme is well underway with a handover date of spring 2019.
This secondment has been banded at AfC Grade 8a and a discussion will be held with the successful candidate around accommodation and travel. This may include one return journey to the Scottish Mainland or main Island per month and assistance with accommodation making up the recruitment package.
