About the role

£50,000 - £60,000 per annum

Stoke-on-Trent/Staffordshire

Minimum 2 days per week

Maximum 3 year term

We are an ambitious system with plans for service and system change over the next five years to improve the health and wellbeing of our local people through high quality care delivered in a sustainable way. Our system represents a joint commitment demonstrated by NHS and local authority partners to transform the way we provide health and care across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

You will lead the next stage in our evolution towards ICS status, enabling and galvanizing the work of system leaders to maximise the benefits of collaborative working, shared decision making and effective governance. Ensuring system transformation, you will improve leadership culture by creating an environment of collaboration and partnership working where people will role model positive values and behaviours in working across organisational boundaries. An ambassador of the ICS to the local community and NHS Region, you will contribute to and influence national policy development and act as an advocate for the system.

You will need to be adaptive, comfortable within a dynamic environment and seek to influence. Your long-term view will be focused on transformation of the whole system and primarily accountable to people and communities. This will be underpinned by deep knowledge of Health and social care and the broader public sector, and specifically of complex public service systems and state of the art of system-wide partnership arrangements. You will have spent significant time in a Board level role in a complex, large-scale organisational context, either within the NHS, the broader Public Sector and/or the Independent sector.
