Fellows of Practice Opportunities

The Government Outcomes (GO) Lab is once again accepting applications to join our Fellows of Practice network.

GO Lab Fellows of Practice contribute to the continued development of the Lab and assist in our objectives of conducting world leading research into outcomes-based commissioning (OBC), supporting local commissioners, and engaging practitioners and academics to raise awareness and understanding of OBC.

Past Fellows have offered experience, honed in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors, and have supported the work of the GO Lab through a broad range of activities, such as supporting local commissioners, contributing to working papers and policy briefs, participating in roundtable meetings, and presenting at GO Lab events.

The Lab provides an opportunity for Fellows to work with other leading professionals and engage in work that leads the broader development of outcome commissioning.

In the current round of recruitment we particularly welcome applications from those looking to contribute in the following areas:

  • Developing commissioning practice in SIBs: For example, the development of “how to” guidance, design and delivery of master classes and reflective learning events, designing improvement in practice e.g. cost benefit and value analysis, outcome measurement and designing payment and commercial frameworks.
  • Opinion shaping: Contributing to a series of “think pieces/blogs” that utilise insights to shape opinion.
  • NHS commissioning: To support the Lab’s outreach to NHS commissioners and assist us in identifying and tackling barriers to the adoption of OBC
  • Learning and communities of practice: Helping us to shape a programme of learning and peer-led development for commissioners involved in SIBs or other forms of OBC

We are open to proposals on other work you consider might be of value to the Lab.

If you are interested in joining the Fellows of Practice Network, please send a CV and covering letter (no more than 2 pages) setting out your experience/expertise and how you propose to contribute to our work to by 20th October. Decisions will be made by mid-November. Please note that being a Fellow is a pro bono position and is for a one-year term. We provide some reimbursement for travel and an honorarium for time on lengthier engagements, both by prior agreement.
