In just a few years' time, Kettering General and Northampton General Hospitals will have an amazing story to tell… how they turned competition into collaboration, variation into seamless alignment, and CQC ratings of 'Requires Improvement' into 'Outstanding'. It has been done elsewhere, and the NHS Trusts are looking for a first-rate Group Communications and Engagement Director to help make this happen there.

EMR are delighted to be supporting the search as they embark on an exciting journey with a new Group Chief Executive, Simon Weldon and an ambitious goal in sight: coming together as a new hospital group to serve the whole of Northamptonshire and beyond. Together, they will develop hospitals to be proud of, by delivering clinical excellence and exceptional care for local people, working collaboratively with healthcare partners, creating new opportunities for staff colleagues, and developing, retaining and attracting top talent.

Central to the Trusts' ambition is the difference the newly-created Group Communications and Engagement Director will make to staff and patient satisfaction, culture and reputation. Overseeing a group communications and engagement function which serves the distinct needs of both hospitals, and working closely with Board and senior colleagues across the two Trusts, the postholder will fundamentally transform the way in which the group communicates and engages with their patients, staff, healthcare partners and wider stakeholders.

This is a rare opportunity for a politically-astute, inclusive and upstanding leader who not only makes great things happen, but who also brings people along with them on the journey. Previous NHS experience is not essential, however you will have worked at this level and have an appreciation of the healthcare sector.

If you feel you have the right skills and experience please apply now!

Applications close on Friday 12th March.
