We believe the Island is a great place to live and work and, within this position, you will have responsibility for ensuring the Island takes the exciting opportunity to create a financially and clinically sustainable, high quality, integrated health and care system.

Reporting directly to the Chief Secretary, you will be responsible for leading the transformation to deliver a quality service with the potential to be a worldwide exemplar.

What could this role offer you?

This is a fantastic opportunity to work within a broad and varied role. You will have the opportunity to make a real impact; the transformation of the health and care system will have a long-lasting effect on the Island and play a major role in the Government’s ambition for an Inclusive and Caring Society and a Financially Responsible Government.
