Experience of continuous process improvement would be desirable as well as the ability to add value through establishing key financial controls. Ideally, you will bring some NHS experience or will have worked in closely related fields. Whether you are a current director seeking a new challenge, or an experienced deputy looking to make that step up, this role would provide you with a real opportunity to help identify and drive the future direction of QVH. You will be a collaborative team player with the expertise to drive change and ensure the finance function is an enabler of world-class care.
