Director of Human Resources and Diversity: East Yorkshire
Humber NHS Foundation Trust
Humber is really going places! From the bustling city of Hull, that has seen huge investment in recent years in preparation for its recent reign as the UK City of Culture, to thriving market towns, traditional seaside towns and Yorkshire villages surrounded by rolling countryside.
We’ve also been going through exciting change and the pace continues. We’ve reshaped our organisation, introducing a new distributed leadership model and a refreshed focus on quality, clinical governance and safety. Due to the imminent retirement of our current Director we are seeking to appoint a dynamic individual with proven leadership skills to drive forward and deliver the Trust’s ambitious workforce strategy that ensures we excel as a model employer in developing and motivating our talented staff to deliver the highest standards of care possible.
We provide a diverse range of community services, community and inpatient mental health services, learning disability services, healthy lifestyle support and addictions services, children’s services and a growing number of primary care services in Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire and from the Whitby area to Goole, employing nearly 3,000 staff across over 70 sites. With an ambitious estates programme, the Trust is now responsible for the operation of Whitby Hospital, five GP practices, has recently established a limited company to manage the development of GP services and we are further developing our CAMHS services.
As a Teaching Trust, we work closely with our major academic partners, nurturing a workforce of tomorrow’s health professionals.
Our people are some of the very best – we need to lead them effectively and help them achieve safe, high quality care, despite testing financial times. This is a significant opportunity to play a key leadership role on the Board of a large, complex, vibrant and exciting Foundation Trust.
Reporting to our CEO, this is an exciting and challenging role, which requires an exceptional individual with an excellent track record in OD and HR. You’ll be an established senior leader with significant experience of leading complex organisational and workforce change in a multi-professional, multi-stakeholder environment. Excellent relationship management skills will mean you build credibility quickly, fostering strong alliances inside and outside the organisation. NHS experience is not a requirement for this role, but you must bring a passion for improving our population’s health and well-being.
