Stockport NHS Foundation Trust is at one of the most exciting and transformative points in our history. The Stockport Together partnership has brought Stockport’s providers of health and social care services together to developing a safe, affordable and integrated health and social care system across the borough. We are at a defining moment with a single strategic plan, as part of a formal alliance, to integrate services.

As one of only four ‘hub’ sites in Greater Manchester for high risk general surgery, the Trust is also playing an important role in the wider Greater Manchester devolution.  We are closely working with our colleagues across the South-East sector of the region to create improved and more efficient pathways.

At this time of significant transformation, we are seeking a new Chief Executive who will bring ambition, courage, vision and inspirational leadership to the organisation and the system. We are seeking an individual who will thrive as a system leader bringing an open and collaborative partnership approach.  A refreshed and dynamic leadership team is emerging across the borough, with key appointments made by several of our partners in the last six months. You will join us as we enter a new era of health and care service delivery for Stockport and our wider region.

The role requires you to bring your skills in strategic engagement to work with our partners, colleagues, governors, members, patients and public in the creation of our future system delivery model. It will also require resilience and focus in delivering operational effectiveness in the face of significant current performance challenges. As an innovative and visible leader this is an exceptional opportunity for you to make your mark and deliver improvement in the future health and wellbeing of our population.
