Human Tissue Authority

The regulator for human tissue and organs

Stakeholder Engagement Manager Job Vacancy

We are the national independent regulator for organisations that remove, store and use human tissue for research, medical treatment, post-mortem examination, teaching and display in public. We also give approval for organ and bone marrow donations from living people.

We aim to maintain confidence in the system by ensuring that human tissue is used safely, ethically, and with proper consent. We were established in 2005 following events in the 1990s that revealed a culture in hospitals of removing and retaining human organs and tissue without consent, so ensuring appropriate consent in the use of human tissue is one of our guiding principles.

The interests of the public, and those we regulate, are at the heart of our work – and we are looking for a Stakeholder Engagement Manager to continue to drive and develop our programme of activity engaging with our stakeholders, and anyone who is interested in our work.


Who are we looking for?

You will need to be a self-motivated individual who works well with others, and on your own initiative, to successfully drive a wide range of engagement activities working with colleagues across the organisation.

You will have a creative approach to developing and planning tailored campaigns that involve and engage care professionals and other stakeholders.

As an expert communications professional you will be able to provide expert advice and guidance on how best to engage with our stakeholders in a meaningful way.

You will be a calm and confident manager of media - and other stakeholder – enquiries; working with colleagues to ensure we remain an open and accountable organisation, responding to enquiries in a timely, fair, and transparent manner.

You will assist the HTA’s Policy and Strategy team to strengthen our horizon scanning capability, allowing for better use of data and intelligence across the organisation; to do this you will need to be outward looking and understand the wider system within which the HTA operates.

You will need a flair for building relationships and confidence to influence at a senior level, both inside and outside of the organisation.

You will have strong interpersonal skills, and the ability to establish yourself quickly in the role.

You will also have experience of analysing complex data, and the ability to translate information to deliver clear briefings and other written material.

You will have a common sense approach to prioritising conflicting tasks and not be phased by managing a demanding workload. This is essential to successfully lead day-to-day activity alongside supporting longer term policy and quality improvement projects.
