Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board
Two Directors of Finance
Attractive VSM Salary
Joined Up Care Derbyshire (JUCD) has a strong record of delivery and improvement. We serve a population of over a million people living in a diverse region with vibrant urban areas, as well as a vast rural landscape. Our partners include two upper tier local authorities with eight Borough and District Councils, four NHS Foundation Trusts providing hospital and community-based care, one Out of Hours provider, two Place Partnerships, 18 Primary Care Networks, and a region-wide Ambulance service. We also have residential and care home providers, and multiple voluntary, community and independent sector organisations. Whilst we have made significant progress there is much more that we need to do to tackle health inequalities. Life expectancy in our populations is lower than the national average, with a significant gap in health outcomes and access to care between the most and least deprived areas. At the heart of joining up care is our vision to create strong and vibrant communities. We want to work together to improve outcomes for the people we serve, and to ensure they have the best start in life, to stay well, age well and die well.
Following a restructuring in our high performing finance team, we are seeking two Directors of Finance to join our directorate, working in key system leadership roles. Both positions will report directly to and deputise for our Chief Financial Officer, with one role focused on ICB operations and delivery and the other leading strategy and planning within our system. Both postholders will build on the strong, collaborative relationships that we have established with partners in the Derby and Derbyshire system’s finance community as well as with our wider partners and regulators. They will bring positive energy and drive to the ICB’s short, medium, and long-term financial goals and strategy. These are exceptional opportunities to use your professional expertise to facilitate and drive our commitment to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequalities for our local population.
We are seeking experienced and values-driven, senior finance leaders keen to use your professional and leadership skills to influence change that will reduce health inequalities for our populations. NHS experience is not essential, we are open to hearing from leaders across sectors who have a track record of delivering complex change and strategic development programmes, adept at building sustained and inclusive relationships in challenging environments and who bring a focus on delivering financial targets and value for money through innovation. These are opportunities for aspiring Chief Finance Officers to gain significant strategic experience in a role which offers a genuine opportunity to shape the future health outcomes for the population of Derby and Derbyshire.
