We are seeking applicants who have proven experience working at a senior level and who have implemented and led changes in a supportive and collaborative style working in partnership with Clinical Directors and senior nursing colleagues within the Division.  You will be the main point of contact for all matters relating to the services within your portfolio including operational activity and performance, workforce planning, contract and finance and governance and risk.

If you are interested to use this as an opportunity to further your career, please outline in your supporting statement how you meet the criteria outlined above and how you would assist the Division on its improvement journey.

Working for our organisation

You will need to be resilient, flexible, influential and informative as well as having a ‘can do’ attitude.

This is a pivotal role within the Division. You will join a dedicated senior team working in a rapidly moving but supportive environment as we continue our journey of “Getting to Good”.

The Government has formally announced that it intends to introduce regulations that will require any individuals employed by the NHS where their role involves patient contact, to be fully vaccinated (1st and 2nd dose) against COVID-19 by 1st April 2022.  To achieve this the successful applicant must have had their 1st COVID-19 vaccination by 3rd February 2022. Therefore, full COVID-19 vaccination will be a condition of employment unless an individual is medically exempt. We will ask for proof of vaccination during the recruitment process.
