Executive Director of Quality, Nursing and Healthcare Professionals

Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust

We are looking for an exceptional and inclusive leader to join our award-winning and values-based Trust as Executive Director of Quality, Nursing and Healthcare Professionals.

Pennine Care is a Trust with big ambitions. Working as part of a diverse board, you will play a pivotal role in helping us to achieve them.

You will provide highly visible and inspiring strategic direction, and support service users and their carers to work alongside us, to ensure we deliver outstanding patient care and outcomes for everyone. You will help us to become a great place to work by creating the right conditions for our highly talented colleagues to maximise their potential, and a Trust that gets better and better one day at a time by actively engaging and involving colleagues in improvement work. Given the changing health and social care landscape, partnership working is more important than ever. In this context, you will be an excellent partner to the many organisations and groups we work with to improve health and reduce inequalities and be a strong voice for mental health, learning disability, and autism.

We welcome interest from the most diverse range of potential candidates. Most important will be your values-driven leadership style, appreciation of the importance of an engaging and psychologically safe culture, your ability to work closely with stakeholders to deliver change, your strong interpersonal skills and ability to build credibility with clinicians and partners, your high levels of resilience, energy and optimism and ability to create a positive sense of hope for the future.
