NHS Providers is the membership organisation for the NHS hospital, mental health, community and ambulance services that treat patients and service users in the NHS. We help those NHS foundation trusts and trusts to deliver high-quality, patient-focused care by enabling them to learn from each other, acting as their public voice and helping shape the system in which they operate. We have all trusts in England in voluntary membership, collectively accounting for £115bn of annual expenditure and employing 1.4 million people.
We are looking for a talented and collegiate Director of Corporate Services and Finance to play a pivotal role in developing our Corporate Services directorate, including working with our partners who are modernising our accounting systems. Following a period of review, this is a substantial opportunity to implement a number of changes that are now needed to revitalise and strengthen our corporate support. With responsibility for a cross-organisational budget of £10m, a personal budget of £2m and a team of up to 30 colleagues, you will also be an integral member of our Executive Management Team (EMT), sharing collective responsibility for running a 100-strong organisation.
We’re looking for someone with a relevant professional qualification and deep corporate services experience. Insight into charitable organisations would be helpful, as our situation and the opportunities and challenges we face, may be familiar to you. But whatever sector you are from, you will have plenty of leadership flair, emotional intelligence and will be a natural collaborator and team player with warmth and curiosity. Crucially, you will know what the right infrastructure and corporate support looks like for an organisation like ours, and how it can help us all stay truly influential on behalf of those we serve.
If you believe you have the personal qualities, skills and experience we are looking for, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
