NATH (Nottinghamshire Alliance Training Hub)
Hi, I’m Adam and I am an Operations & Liaison Manager working for an NHS Training Hub.
I am an Operations & Liaison Manager, this means I help with a lot of the day-to-day running of the NHS training hub whether it’s running projects, attending meetings or doing school visits.
My Typical Day:
My day starts at 8am and involves attending meetings, reporting to a host of different organisations on how the training hub is doing, helping the team arrange training, answering emails and a lot of other tasks too!
I help run a number of projects, a lot of these have input from Clinical Roles (such as doctors, nurses, physiotherapists etc.) so it remains varied and is an area I can learn a lot from these other roles about the NHS and many other things.
If I have a project going live, I may have a lot more focus on that one area for a week or a month to make sure it’s running smoothly.

What's the best thing you've done in your career?
Lead projects that have benefitted my colleagues and had measurable improvements, like improving digital systems so they break less often or are more useful… and then because I am a bit of a data nerd, seeing statistically how much these changes have helped by seeing less issues coming through or positive feedback.
What or who inspired you to do your job?
No single individual, but I’ve had a lot of help when I’ve wanted to understand something and this has lead to giving things a go, or getting trained! I’ve also approached people, such as other project managers, for mentoring!
If you weren't in healthcare, what job would you do?
Air Traffic Controller!
