Vision… We want you to have it and to use your vision to help steer, drive, support and deliver service improvement within the Surgery Division here at Northampton General Hospital. Innovation is key, and you will be supported to be creative and brave.

As a Directorate Manager you will be exposed to lots of different things, so there will never be a “standard day”.  As part of your role, you will work closely with the Clinical Director and Matron for General & Specialist Surgery and you will also be supported by the Senior Divisional team.

In order to be successful in this role, you will need a desire to learn and to push the transformation and service improvement agenda.  You will also need to be able to get people “on board”, in order to achieve financial and non-financial targets, as well as delivery of the Directorates annual plan which will enable you to demonstrate your change management expertise.

Having some knowledge about managing surgery is obviously useful but, this is not essential as support and guidance will be given to the right candidate, who has the desire and passion to learn and develop.

This is a secondment/fixed term post for 6 months initially to cover maternity leave and may potentially extend up to one year.
