The NHS faces unprecedented challenges, financial, operational and structural. There is no more important time than now to lead and effect change and to make a difference for patients for generations to come.   Likewise, there are few roles as crucial as being Chief Executive of the organisation that faces square on to these challenges.

In a role requiring resilience and strength of character, the Chief Executive of NHS improvement will need to take difficult decisions under significant public, media and political scrutiny, co-piloting the NHS through a challenging programme of cost and productivity improvement, whilst also championing quality, sustainability and transformation partnerships. This individual will play a vital role in producing more integrated health and care services across traditional boundaries.

The Chief Executive will need to be a leader with an unblemished record, deep experience in, and understanding of, the NHS, together with drive, energy and ambition to leave behind an unparalleled legacy.  Communication skills and the ability to manage a highly complex stakeholder landscape in a collaborative and galvanising manner, will be vital characteristics for the successful candidate.
