Job Description

MMK Talent Solutions is hiring Policy & Strategy officer for a leading award winning IT Health tech agency who will be responsible for working on national level projects

We are hiring for a Technology Strategy Policy Office for an award winning IT health Tech agency. The candidate will play a critical role in the long-term development of Digital Health strategies and plans in Data and IT.

The successful candidate will be part of a team leading the development and implementation of the Digital Health Master Plan for the healthcare sector, conceptualise strategies to drive digitalisation and harness the use of data, and develop strategic partnerships. To succeed in this role, the candidate will need a good understanding of Singapore's healthcare system in the area of Digital Health, in order to identify gaps and opportunities, that can then be translated into actionable strategies and policy recommendations for our healthcare system.
The candidate will also be involved in policy review and development, such as on the role of strategic systems and digitalisation plans, as well as strategic budget and management of portfolio performance to support IT financing and investments.
As this is a policy and planning role, the candidate will be required to undertake horizon-scanning, literature research, data analysis, and engage thought leaders and stakeholders in developing plans and policies. In particular, you will need to engage widely across public healthcare institutions, ministry divisions and relevant government agencies to understand priorities, business demands and resourcing, connect the dots on dependencies, and align plans for sustainable transformation.
The candidate will also provide staffing support to Digital Health Forums where strategies and plans for the sector will be discussed.

a) must be able to conduct independent analysis through (i) establishing clear inquiry lines, and (2) understanding and synthesising information from different sources
b) must have excellent people skills, in order to develop strong relationships with stakeholders across all levels and different domains whom you will need to work with to align objectives and efforts
c) must be able to communicate complex ideas simply and effectively (both in written and oral form)
d) should enjoy working in fast-paced teams, be comfortable with navigating ambiguity and change, be resourceful, as well as have a strong results-orientation and good time management skills
e) Any prior experience in strategic planning, technology planning and the healthcare sector would be an advantage
