It’s an exciting time at Royal Cornwall as we implement our proposed new Care Group structure, moving from four divisions to seven distinct care groups – designed to deliver better patient care, improve accountability and make our colleagues’ working lives more fulfilling. If you’ve got the passion, commitment, patient focus and skills we need, and you can really demonstrate our values in your leadership style then we’re eager to hear from you.

We’re recruiting both permanent and interim positions. These are demanding, strategic and visible senior roles that we’ve put in place to really bring about positive change in our hospitals and services; establishing more manageable portfolios and bringing leadership closer to our all-important front-line colleagues and our patients. We’d love for you to be part of it!

Our proposed structure includes the following seven care groups - General Surgery & Cancer, Specialist Surgery, Clinical Support, Women, Children & Sexual Health, Anaesthetics, Critical Care & Theatres, Specialist Medicine and Urgent, Emergency & Trauma. The proposed leadership team is the same across all care groups and we're recruiting the following posts:

  • Clinical Directors x 7
  • Heads of Nursing/AHPs x 7
  • General Managers x 7

Full details of each of these roles, including the person specification and job description are attached. Please note that the individual job descriptions are contained within the one job description file.

Starting in January 2019, we are launching an extensive leadership development programme across the Trust. You’ll be one of the first leaders to experience this innovative and exciting programme which will deliver real benefits to how we work together to achieve the best outcomes possible for our patients and colleagues.

You’ll need to upload your current and full CV to NHS Jobs detailing your career and achievements to date. Please also complete the online application in full. Alternatively, you can apply online using the Trust’s website via the apply button below. 

Interviews are expected to be held during week commencing 3 December with assessment centres scheduled for 12 December.
