The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) is the main processing facility and centre of excellence for payment, reimbursement, remuneration and reconciliation for NHS Dental Practitioners, Pharmacists, NHS Pensions and other affiliated parties.

Overseas Healthcare Services (OHS) is a new service to the NHSBSA which provides the administration of social security benefits for the sickness and accidents at work and occupational diseases sectors on behalf of the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC). This includes the administration of entitlement documents and the reimbursement processes between European Union (EU) European Economic Area (EEA) member states and Switzerland. A project spanning several years has been underway to transition these processes into a paperless future. The Electronic Exchange of Social Security Information (EESSI) project is due to begin implementation during 2019, and an exciting opportunity has arisen within OHS for the role of Reference Implementation of a National Application (RINA) Transition and Integration Lead.

RINA is a data transfer and communication system designed by the European Commission to facilitate the exchange of electronic social security information between EU/EEA member states and Switzerland to facilitate timely payments and the exchange of social security information between member states for reciprocal healthcare services and other social security benefits. A key element of this role involves working extensively with internal and external colleagues and stakeholders and the RINA Transition and Integration Lead will need a high level of communication and engagement skills to approach this effectively.

Initially, the RINA Transition and Integration Lead will work alongside OHS Service Delivery Managers and lead on the business transition to electronic exchanges using EESSI via RINA across the EESSI transition period. This will include coordinating efforts between BSA operational and IT teams as well as being a point of contact for coordination with other government departments. Following successful implementation, the role will evolve into leading on the successful integration of RINA into the OHS IT system.

Interested parties should have the following skills:

*Have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with operational teams and stakeholders in a calm, confident and professional manner.

*Make robust decisions based on sound analysis of business processes

*Be able to deal with sensitive and confidential data.

*Develop an advanced understanding of applicable EU legislation, EESSI business use cases, the operation of RINA, and any other subsequent requirements.

*Be able to facilitate change positively in a fast moving environment

*Have strong collaborative working skills and the ability to work on your own initiative.

There is an expectation that flexibility will be required with working hours and occasional international and UK travel may be required.

We offer an attractive total reward package including:
• up to 33 days annual leave;
• flexible working;
• competitive terms and conditions, including access to the NHS Pension Scheme plus
• a range of other benefits to suit your needs.
