Southern Health is one of the largest providers of mental health, learning disability and community services in the country. Although the past few years have been challenging for the Trust, there are now strong foundations to build on and we have a very real opportunity to move forward.
In the last 12 months, the senior leadership team at the Trust has been strengthened and transformed. A new Chair, Chief Executive, Non-Executive and Executive Directors have all been appointed. This leadership team now incorporates greater clinical leadership, mental health expertise, and includes leaders who have joined us from outstanding NHS organisations.
We are looking for exceptional individuals, with a broad range of strategic skills and significant experience of building successful teams and bringing about change in complex organisations. We want board colleagues whose capacity to constructively challenge can inspire, motivate and influence – both internally and externally – and who can communicate effectively with all types of audience.
Beyond this, they will need a deep understanding of mental health services and learning disabilities, and a true passion for supporting patients, service users, their families and their carers.
We positively encourage applications from all sections of the community and we are committed to developing a workforce fully representative of our communities at all levels. We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under represented in chair and non-executive roles.
To find out more, please contact Paul Draycott, Director of Workforce, Organisational Development & Communications or Anna Williams, Company Secretary.
Applications close on 17 August 2018.
