As an innovative, dynamic healthcare provider with the spirit of transformation at our core, at Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust (LCH) we are harnessing the opportunities created by the ‘left shift’ agenda which alters how and where care is traditionally delivered. On behalf of the residents of Leeds, we are determined to continue this journey by prioritising effective partnerships and by utilising opportunities. In our next CEO, therefore, it’s natural that we would seek a leader who will build on our success by strengthening and enhancing the Trust’s collaboration across the other agencies and healthcare providers in Leeds. We are seeking someone who can develop and communicate a compelling vision that fully captures the aspirations of our board, inspires our 3,000 staff, and delivers for patients across Leeds and the wider West Yorkshire system.
The experience necessary for this role could be gained in the wider public sector, supported by a sound grasp of the health and care sector, or in a related sector. You will be an effective leader with experience of creating and developing cohesive and high performing teams based on an open and inclusive culture; your leadership journey will include evidence of your positive impact on the equality, diversity and inclusion agenda within your organisation. Reporting to the Chair and operating within a highly regulated environment, you will wish to demonstrate the ability to flourish as the leader of a distributed multi-disciplinary workforce, bringing an evident commitment to transformational change and a track record of an accomplished partnership builder. Your outward-facing credentials should be complemented by evidence of defining and delivering innovative solutions that cross organisational boundaries.
As our Chief Executive you will lead an organisation that provides care to around 5,000 people every day, covering the 868,000 population of Leeds and also some specialist services across the wider Yorkshire and Humber area; our care is always provided as close to home as possible, and is delivered through the three business units of Adult Services, Specialist Services, and Children and Families Services.
