We are  recruiting  an exciting new  Strategy and Partnerships Director role at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. As  one of the UK’s largest, busiest, and complex NHS foundation trusts, we provide a huge range of hospital and community services for the people of Sheffield, as well as specialist care for patients much further afield. Our 19,000 members of staff work both in the community and in five of the country’s leading teaching hospitals. As a member of the Shelford Group, a collaboration between ten of the largest teaching and research NHS hospital trusts in England, we have a long history of providing high quality care and clinical excellence as well as an international reputation for innovation in medical research and education. 

We have especially close partnerships with the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, and industry leaders, to ensure we remain at the forefront of advancements in clinical services, education, and research. Equally important to us are the partnerships we have forged with local people, patients, partner NHS organisations, local authorities, and charitable bodies, and this is an area we are keenly invested in developing further. Our people are critical to us and if we are to become an outstanding organisation, we need to become a beacon of excellence; ensuring we recruit and retain the best possible people to lead our highly committed workforce and maximise our ability to care for the people who rely on our services.

The new Strategy and Partnerships Director will play a leading role in developing and delivering our first Clinical Blueprint – setting out the changes over coming years to the clinical services we provide and the populations we serve.  You will play a vital part in shaping our strategic partnerships and our organisational and strategic vision, converting our aspirational aims into deliverable goals, challenging established systems and practice, and providing visible leadership to the wider community.

We are open to talented and ambitious strategy leaders who bring intellect, commitment, and energy, and who have experience of working in complex settings. You will be a collaborative leader with considerable focus on working in partnership and a natural empathy with our organisational values:


Patients first - Ensure that the people we service are at the heart of all that we do

Respectful -  Be kind, respectful, fair and value diversity

Ownership - Celebrate our successes, learn continuously, and ensure we improve

Unity - Work in partnership with others

Deliver - Be efficient, effective, and accountable for our actions
