Be part of something special.

Be part of Bristol.

North Bristol Trust is looking for its next Chief Executive to take it to Outstanding and to be a key leader in the wider transformation of health and social care.

The impact of Covid-19 and NBT’s hosting of the Nightingale Hospital on behalf of the Severn Critical Care Network, has opened opportunities for a very different conversation, particularly about Acute provision across Bristol and the wider area served by the city’s 2 acute Trusts. The Nightingale Hospital has brought together organisations and clinicians in open conversations and joint decisions, and the legacy must be to continue this work to transform how we deliver the best outcomes for our patients and communities.

The new CEO at NBT must be committed to pursuing these opportunities and will jointly sponsor, with University Hospitals Bristol and Weston, the Acute Services Review which will identify the ways in which clinical and organisational collaboration can transform acute services.

You are likely to already be a CEO or at a senior Board position in a large complex organisation. You will need to demonstrate you have a vision for what a joined up health system could offer and have a collaborative approach to achieving that. At the same time you must be able to evidence your abilities to provide compassionate and focused leadership to NBT, demonstrating strong personal values which resonate with our staff. You should understand our DGH and tertiary business both within BNSSG and the wider region.

You will understand what we need to do to achieve operational, financial and quality performance whilst protecting the reputation of NBT as a compassionate and caring organisation, recognised as “Outstanding” for Caring by the CQC.

You will know the value of being rooted in our communities and will ensure NBT provides system leadership across all the partners in BNSSG. You will understand the importance of clinical engagement inside and outside the hospital and will be able to evidence a leadership style that enables and supports this.

You will be able to convince us that you are an inspirational leader with high levels of curiosity, able to create an inclusive culture which values diversity of thought. You must be able to show how you would calmly and rigorously lead NBT to deliver its’ strategy and ensure it is providing outstanding services for patients and a supportive and productive environment for all staff.
