Executive Director of Workforce
Since its formation in 2002, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust has grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of community and mental health services. Our vision is to deliver the best care to patients, people and families in our local communities, by working effectively with partners to help people to live well. We employ just fewer than 6,000 staff who provide care to 1.3 million people across six boroughs of Greater Manchester.
These are challenging times for all NHS providers, with operational, financial and workforce pressures reaching unprecedented levels. However, such challenge also offers exciting opportunity. We are looking for a new Director of Workforce to play a central leadership role on our Board and guide the workforce through a period of significant and sustained change ensuring we engage and maximise the potential and commitment of our large and talented workforce.

- Lead the HR team ensuring it works as a true business partner across the organisation, enabling the delivery of the highest service standards and creating the environment to attract and retain the most talented and high performing staff.
- Significant senior management and leadership experience with a track record of successfully leading major workforce and transformation programmes in a complex service driven environment, preferably within the public sector.
- Strong interpersonal skills and extensive experience of developing and maintaining successful partnership working arrangements; expertise in leading collaborative working and engaging with internal and external stakeholders.
- Creative and delivery orientated with a background in planning, developing and implementing OD and cultural change strategies.
