We are looking for a talented, developing leader to support Care City’s work as an innovation centre for healthy ageing, testing and growing the use of digital innovations across health and care services. This is a chance to develop your career, and to make a real difference in an exciting team, where big ideas meet real public services, and help them to do better.
Care City is an innovation centre for healthy ageing, founded by the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham and North-East London Foundation Trust. We research, innovate and educate to enable a happier, healthier older age. We aim to be the innovation partner to our local health and care system.

You have some experience of research, innovation, design or project management, but more importantly, a willingness to learn. You take responsibility for yourself, your work, and your learning and development. You have the relentlessness to make change happen, and you want to make it your career. You are looking for a platform for your career, not a conveyer belt. You have strong people and problem-solving skills.
