GatenbySanderson’s Health Practice has extensive recruitment expertise at board level in the NHS. We have an established track record of appointing permanent and interim chief executives, executive directors and senior clinicians to all types of NHS organisations and, as part of GatenbySanderson’s Board Practice, on the appointment of Chairs and Non Executive Directors for Trusts.
We actively encourage and support aspiring non-executive directors through our Insight Programme which provides under-represented groups such as BAME and female candidates the opportunity to gain NED experience. We also support NHS Trust Secretaries through our regular regional networking seminars and LinkedIn group. Our Leadership & Talent Consultancy team supports organisations through restructuring exercises – recent examples have included incorporating Community Services and reshaping clinical directorates. With offices in the South, Midlands and North we have national coverage and excellent local networks.
As well as supporting Trusts with their senior recruitment, we have worked extensively with national bodies such as NHS England, the NHS Transformation Unit and NHS Blood and Transplant. We work with a wide range of other healthcare organisations including charities such as the Kings Fund, Healthcare Foundation and Sue Ryder, and with regulators such as the GMC, the General Pharmaceutical Council and the General Dental Council.
Our approach is characterised by close working relationships with our clients and a very personal touch with candidates. This approach has ensured that we continue to succeed in helping healthcare organisations transform and improve through the quality of their senior teams.
