Recognised nationally as a high performing provider, last year we acquired Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust and we are delivering our plan of investment to provide the same world-class, sustainable mental health care for people living in Manchester as for the other areas we serve. Working with partners across Greater Manchester through the exciting opportunity of Devolution, we are promoting parity of esteem for mental health with physical health. We are shifting the focus to prevention, early intervention and resilience in communities, to deliver a sustainable and integrated mental health system across the region. 

Our Chief Executive is retiring after 12 successful years in the role and we are seeking a visionary leader to join us at an important time in our development.  We are seeking an individual who will inspire an experienced Executive team and dedicated members of staff who are passionate about improving the lives of the people we serve.  A strong collaborator you will engage service users, carers and partners across the public, third and independent sectors, to create a system-based approach to delivering services for our communities. If you share our values and you thrive in working and influencing across organisational boundaries to deliver transformational change in care services, then we would love to hear from you.
