Chief Executive Officer - Principal Medical

We are looking for an exceptional Chief Executive Officer to join our team at Principal Medical.

PML is a successful not-for-profit, GP-led organisation providing various NHS community and primary care clinical services to patients across Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire. We have evolved as an NHS healthcare provider since 2004 and in the last few years have grown significantly, now employing around 300 staff with a turnover of c. £16m. PML holds GMS contracts, as well as being a GP Federation representing c. 50 GP practices covering approximately 650,000 patients.

The CEO will have overall responsibility for developing and delivering PML’s corporate business strategy, which will include creating a people-orientated, best-culture development plan (patients and staff), that enhances overall performance, improves the “working lives” of the workforce, and ultimately ensures PML’s continued success into the future. The postholder will be responsible for improving our existing clinical services to patients by developing the organisation’s infrastructure, whilst simultaneously capitalising on new business opportunities to provide future NHS services within the local healthcare system.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a pivotal leadership role in an ambitious organisation. As such, we are seeking an experienced senior leader with a proven track record either in a commercial organisation and/or the wider NHS, preferably with a mixture of both. The ideal candidate will demonstrate an ability to influence a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. You will be a compassionate, values-driven leader with strong emotional intelligence and high integrity.

We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from under-represented groups, including disabled people and members of our black, Asian and minority ethnic communities to improve the diversity of experience within our senior leadership team.
