“Working together to help you to stay healthy and to care for you expertly and compassionately when you are not”.

This is our mission statement. To help us achieve it, we are looking for an exceptional individual to help us shape the future of our recently formed NHS Foundation Trust – an individual who feels their values match our own and is excited to join us on our journey.

This important role is being offered at an exciting time for our organisation, as we progress our Better Together strategy to meet our ambitions to be a digital-first, research-led teaching organisation that delivers sustainable care to our patients across North, Mid and East Devon.

Our people are at the heart of the care we deliver and one of our core objectives is to be a great place to work. We are proud of the investment that we make into the teaching, training and development and supporting the health and wellbeing of our colleagues.

We are looking for candidates with significant leadership experience in large and complex people focused organisations, with a track record of outstanding service delivery. You will be flexible in approach with an ability to engage and inspire; but, above all, your personal values will be aligned to our own. You will have the vision, integrity, and commitment to support us to deliver the highest quality healthcare possible to the people of  Devon, passionate about doing the best for our patients.

As an inclusive employer, the Royal Devon values diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. The Trust actively encourages applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures.
