If you are Ambitious, Brave and Compassionate there has never been a more exciting time to join our team and lead the people agenda. Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust (BWC) is proud to be by the sides of thousands of patients and families each year; providing the very best care and support available in the NHS and beyond.

Our new Chief People Officer will play a pivotal role in embedding a leadership culture which allows our workforce to flourish, and to push boundaries in delivering our vision of being a world-leading team, providing world-leading care.  Joining an ambitious and highly respected Chief Officer Team, you will work with colleagues internally and across our Integrated Care System to drive a wide portfolio including workforce planning, professional education, organisational development and most critically diversity and inclusion.  As an Executive member of the Board our Chief People Officer will also take a corporate role in contributing to wider strategic leadership; acting as the guardian of our values.
