Director of People - Newham University Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust

Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.

The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.

Director of People – Newham University Hospital

This is an excellent opportunity to help create a leading people function in the NHS and play a key role on the site management team of Newham University Hospital. The Director of People will strategically and innovatively lead the people agenda for the hospital and work with the site’s CEO, Barts Health’s Group Director of People and a network of peers in our other sites, to support the hospital to become an Outstanding Place to Work by fostering the right culture aligned to our values. The postholder will be instrumental in deploying agreed Group strategies, ensuring the effective design of teams and services, and driving forward the effective development of leadership, people management and programme management capability across the hospital.

We are looking for an inspirational and innovative leader with a successful track record of delivery in senior HR roles. You will be accustomed to working with executive teams and have significant experience of complex organisational and workforce change in a multi-professional, multi-stakeholder environment. Your excellent relationship management and communication skills will mean you build credibility quickly and can foster strong alliances across and outside an organisation. Importantly, too, you will bring a passion for improving our population’s health and well-being.
