We have a rare opportunity for a senior, experienced communications professional to join our award-winning communications team at one of the largest and most exciting teaching hospitals in the country.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust looks after seven hospitals and has more than 20,000 staff providing care for patients from across Leeds, West Yorkshire and the wider region.  The Trust has an annual income of £1.4billion and provides a wide range of specialist hospital services as well as high quality acute hospital care.  Leeds Teaching Hospitals strives to be the ‘best place to work’ and has a strong culture and values known as The Leeds Way which underpins all aspects of our communications, behaviour and decision making.  We are an ambitious and innovative trust and are always pushing the boundaries.  We are currently investing in building two new hospitals at Leeds General Infirmary and a new pathology laboratory at St James’s Hospital as part of the Government’s New Hospital Programme.

We are looking for an accomplished communications professional with experience across the breadth of communications disciplines and a proven track record to support delivery of our Trust vision and objectives.  Not only will you be striving to make Leeds Teaching Hospitals the best place to work, but you will be using your skills and experience to showcase all the amazing work that happens in the Trust in the most creative and accessible way.

The successful applicant will be one of two heads of communications responsible for all aspects of internal and external communications including media relations; internal communications and staff engagement; digital and social media; stakeholder engagement and communications; marketing communications campaigns and events.  You will lead a small account team of communications professionals working in a flexible matrix model, to deliver creative, outcome focused work which will make a real difference for our patients and staff.

You will be an inspirational leader and an outstanding team player who is not only able to advise and work well with colleagues of all levels across the Trust, but also be able to work collaboratively with colleagues from across the local and regional NHS and social care systems to deliver on broader ambitions.
