Outstanding Care, Exceptional People, Every Hour of Every Day

Serving a population of 6.2 million people across 7,500 square miles, East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust provides both accident and emergency services and non-emergency transport to the communities of the East of England. With 4,000 staff and 387 front line ambulances, we work across 6 Integrated Care Systems to deliver patient focused care across the region.

We are firmly on an improvement pathway.  We are at the early stages of a journey as we respond to being placed in ‘Special Measures’, involving the reshaping of our culture and addressing quality concerns to benefit staff, patients and the wider community.   Whilst we are rated as “Outstanding” by the CQC for the quality of care we provide, we know there is much work still to be done. Having achieved much in the last year, we are looking for a compassionate and inspirational Chief Executive to lead in continuing to drive that change.  

The role requires an experienced, values-driven senior leader who has a flexible leadership style, one who excels in, and enjoys,  leading from the front in situations demanding an urgent response, but is also committed to developing teams and individuals to achieve personal potential and secure enduring success for EEAST. The successful candidate will foster an inclusive, open, and respectful culture, true to the NHS and Trust values, whilst also delivering on in-year performance and planning for the longer term future.

You will have a strong track record of leading organisations by empowering staff, developing a strong senior team, and ensuring culture change benefits staff and service quality.  As we strive to become an organisation known for its outstanding provision of services and for being a great place to work, we need an exceptional leader with a record of developing staff motivation, , and of leading dispersed professional teams.

Previous experience of working in the NHS is not required for the post, though a commitment to the values of the Trust and wider public sector is essential. Experience of working within a regulated environment would also be helpful. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate an ability to understand the changing health and care landscape in which we deliver services, developing a strong executive team to provide effective leadership across the organisation whilst building partnerships across the region.

If you feel this could be you, we would love to hear from you, and the role offers an opportunity to lead on improving healthcare for millions of people in a values focused and ambitious organisation.

For more information, please contact Robin Staveley or Jim Canning of GatenbySanderson on 020 7246 3985 or by email to  jim.canning@gatenbysanderson.com, for an initial informal discussion.
