A great opportunity to lead an outstanding organisation that is transforming cancer care. The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is one of the UK’s leading cancer centres, employing more than 1,200 staff members and treating more than 27,000 patients each year.

The Trust has ambitious plans to deliver a £162 million capital build programme that will take our organisation and staff into an exciting new chapter in our history. We are transforming our services and creating a new clinical model. This will ensure we continue to deliver outstanding, responsive and safe care to our patients while also maximising our opportunities for closer working with regional partners and delivering ground breaking research and innovation in cancer treatment that is internationally recognised.

To achieve this vision we need an inspirational Chief Executive with a track-record of leading transformational change. Someone committed to what we want to achieve for our patients who can engage with our workforce and our partners to deliver something fantastic for the people of Merseyside, Cheshire, parts of North Wales, Isle of Man and parts of Lancashire.

This wonderful leadership opportunity may suit someone already operating at CEO or Accountable Officer level or could be the chance for an experienced leader to break through to a CEO post for the first time. However, applicants will have to be able to demonstrate a style of leadership that fits with our values and have a credible CV that shows they have the capability to lead others through change. This post will require someone used to dealing with complexity, scale and challenge at a senior level in the NHS yet remains patient and workforce focussed.

In return you will have the opportunity to lead our organisation and staff into a bright future and make a real difference to the thousands of people and their loved ones who rely upon our services. Together we can improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, a leading cause of poor life expectancy in England, which affects half of all people born after 1960 in their lifetime. Our region has a significantly higher prevalence than the national average and we need you and your leadership to help address this.

Closing date for applications is 9:00am Friday 11th May.
