Director of Operational Finance – Band 9

Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust (TSD) is an integrated care organisation providing acute health care services from Torbay Hospital, community health services and adult social care.  The Trust runs Torbay Hospital as well as five community hospitals, stretching from Dawlish to Brixham.

The Trust has a truly exciting agenda and is seeking a Director of Operational Finance to support them.  The successful candidate will have the opportunity to play a key role in shaping health and care services for the next generation. TSD has been earmarked to receive over £350m though the Health Infrastructure Plan (HIP2) initiative for a wide-ranging digital transformation programme and a comprehensive redevelopment of the acute campus. 

Reporting into David Stacey (Chief Finance Officer), the Director of Operational Finance will play a crucial role in growing and developing the finance and procurement functions.  In supporting the CFO to address some of the key strategic questions the Trust face and to recover their underlying financial performance, you will not only take responsibility for the day-to-day financial management of the Trust, but also act as a supportive and enabling partner to improve quality and value across all their services, whether acute, community or social care. 

The successful candidate must have a collaborative approach to relationships and be a credible, professionally qualified accountant with exemplary leadership skills, high standards and the ability to influence the board and executive teams.  You must have experience leading sizeable teams and be comfortable influencing stakeholders outside of the organisation.  Your significant post-qualification experience will have been gained within a large, complex and public sector organisation, whether health, local government or beyond. 

This is a critical appointment for the Trust and one which will provide a unique career opportunity to leave a lasting legacy on the organisation whilst also being able to influence the wider health system.

The Trust offers a generous relocation package to all those candidates who want to experience everything that Devon has to offer with a move to the South West!  Please ask for further information.
