The Opportunity

Do you have the vision to deliver a new healthcare approach for patients in England?

Integrated care systems (ICSs) are partnerships of health and care organisations that come together to plan and deliver joined up services and to improve the health of people who live and work in their area. They exist to improve outcomes in population health and healthcare; tackle inequalities in patient outcomes, experience and access; enhance productivity and value for money and support broader social and economic development in their area.

As CEO of the ICS’s Integrated Care Board (ICB) you will work with your colleagues, your community and your partners to deliver a long-term strategy to achieve this.

There are now 42 ICSs covering the whole of England, each serving between 500,000 and three million people. Each ICB will hold a substantial budget for commissioning high quality patient care and the authority to establish performance arrangements to ensure this is delivered.

Final appointment as ICB Chief Executive would be dependent on the passage of the Health and Care Bill, and, subject to any potential amendments made to that Bill, be made formally by the ICB Chair on establishment.

These are significant, high-profile roles at the cutting edge of public sector reform. To succeed you will need:

  1. To share our belief that ICSs should reflect all the communities they serve and the ambition of the NHS long term plan.
  2. Significant board level, and CEO experience leading across regulated environments.
  3. Strong, strategic leadership skills, critical reasoning and numeracy, with the experience of stewardship of significant public funds, good governance and delivering impactful public outcomes.
  4. A track record of leading transformational and digital change and an ability to establish a new organisation, top-team and healthy, stakeholder-led culture across your system. You will know how to lead sophisticated engagement and performance strategies at system level.
  5. To be politically astute and an exceptional communicator. This will be demonstrated though a track record of building trusted partnerships which have driven practical, community-led change.
  6. To bring current health experience and thinking which drives improvements in care, long-term, preventative strategies for population health and for tackling health inequality.
  7. You will have great personal integrity and expect this in others. You will actively champion diversity, inclusion, and equality of opportunity for all.

We are passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity.  We know through experience that the different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative work environment that delivers better patient outcomes. We welcome applications irrespective of people’s age, disability, sex, gender, identity and gender expression, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or other personal circumstances. We have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all applicants are treated fairly and consistently at every stage of the recruitment process, including the consideration of reasonable adjustment for people who have a disability.
