Walsall Together Partnership

Walsall

Ref: GSe81922

Walsall Together is a partnership of health, social care, housing, voluntary and community association organisations that are working together to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce inequalities across the borough.

Our aim is to work more closely to together to tackle the widening gaps in health inequalities by focusing on not just health but wider determinants such as housing, education, employment and the vital role that people and communities play in health and well-being. Local voluntary organisations, charities, community groups and the people of Walsall will be at the centre of our planning and decision-making.

We are looking are looking for an outstanding individual who champions our values to Chair our Partnership Board and help lead us forward at an exciting and challenging time of change.

As well as demonstrating a commitment to our values, you will have experience as an effective Board member or public sector Executive in a systems or ‘place’ based environment. Credibility, diplomacy and neutrality are essential qualities needed to lead our diverse organisations and build effective local partnerships.

The commitment is for about a day a week but you will need to be flexible to meet the needs of the Partnership. The post will be hosted by Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust but your accountability is to the Partnership. As national legislation and guidance for Integrated Care Systems and Place Based Partnerships develops, the role and accountabilities for this post may alter slightly.
