You will work within your discipline to promote and create a culture of real participation placing the Service User at the heart of what we do and how we do it. The right candidate will:

  • Cultivate leadership, and plan for succession within those services and create the mechanisms and structures to support the development of frontline staff.
  • Ensure we meet as a minimum all legal, regulatory, compliance and standards in order to continually raise the bar, going beyond expectations.
  • Build and maintain exceptional relationships with regulators, commissioners and external bodies. Represent the very best of our values and our ambitions for service users all aspects of the role, inside and outside the organisation.

If you are interested, we’re looking for someone who is comfortable with detail, delegating appropriately to their team, and enabling leadership to flourish at all levels. You need to be confident in making decisions and in managing complex resources. You should have enough experience to bring technical knowledge of compliance and regulation, service planning and finance as well as strategic workforce planning.
