Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the amazing #TeamNorthMid
We want the best but more importantly, the right people to join North Middlesex.
We are looking to recruit leaders who want to understand and celebrate the diversity of our local patient and staff populations. Leaders with a growth mindset – who choose to see that there’s always a solution to a defined problem – and have the skills to coach for improvement and motivate the individuals and teams around them to perform at a highest level and embrace our Patient First Management System.
Our learning from COVID has focused North Middlesex to be innovative and more open to testing different ways of working and delivering services to our patient populations across Haringey, Enfield and their bordering boroughs. Our partnership with the Royal Free London and our relationships with partners at the Place level and across the evolving North Central London ICS are opening up even broader possibilities for us to redesign and reconfigure services to benefit our local communities.
We now have exciting opportunities for three exceptional operational leaders to join the senior team at North Middlesex in the role of Divisional Director of Operations (DDO):
These roles report to the Divisional Clinical Director (with a professional line to the Chief Operating Officer) and work closely with clinical, operational and corporate colleagues across the Trust and beyond with a variety of external partnership organisations.
These are tough roles and the successful post holders will need to have strong personal resilience to deal with the day-to-day pressures of leading large and complex services through the busiest time the NHS has ever seen. You will join a team of passionate and talented people who are highly committed to providing the best care to the people of our community.
In return, we will support you to develop into this role professionally with a significant personalised development plan which includes exposure to executive directors and board-level decision making. Here at North Mid we offer successful values-driven apprenticeship programmes at all levels including Masters. All successful candidates will have access to these development opportunities through our portfolio of programmes.
Our vision is to provide outstanding care for local people, delivered in line with our values of caring, fair and open. We need exceptional individuals to help us deliver our goals, broadening our diversity of thought, skills and experience as a senior leadership team.
Through this recruitment process we want you to make just as good a decision to join our organisation as we will make to appoint the successful candidates.
We want our organisation to reflect the diversity of the population we serve. We actively welcome applications from people from all backgrounds, particularly from underrepresented groups including people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and those with disabilities.
