Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Chief People Officer

Location: Milton Keynes | Salary: VSM

Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (MKUH) is seeking to appoint an outstanding leader to the role of Chief People Officer (CPO) to work with our Board and the Council of Governors as we continue our journey working with partners to transform health and social care for our local populations.  Reporting directly to our Chief Executive, Joe Harrison, this is a fantastic chance for a deputy or experienced CPO to join an exceptional, well established and committed team.

The hospital has around 550 beds, including day acute and neonatal beds and employs around 4,300 staff, providing a full range of acute hospital services and an increasing number of specialist services to the growing population of Milton Keynes and surrounding areas. The hospital sees and treats over 400,000 patients each year, and all inpatient services and most outpatient services are provided on the main hospital site.  Over the last 10 years, the Trust has invested significantly in its site and has developed a number of new services and pathways to improve outcomes for patients, as well as the experience they receive whilst in our care. A number of further developments are planned for the coming years as the health demands of the local population change.

You will be an inspirational and values driven leader with a track record of delivering high quality people services and creating empowering and innovative environments with compassionate leadership and clear accountability at all levels. Well-established in working at or near to Board level in person-centred organisations, you will have experience of leading workforce engagement, experience, and well-being.

Naturally curious and innovative, you will bring challenge and fresh thinking to our Board of Directors, enabling us to continuously improve at every level.  In evidencing a strong alignment with our core values and behaviours, you will demonstrate how you reflect these alongside our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion, with a passion for empowering staff to ensure all voices are heard.

Comfortable with political and structural complexity and in operating across organisational boundaries; you will be an authentic and collaborative leader who will quickly develop trust with our high performing clinical and corporate teams, and with our wide range of stakeholders and partners.  Most of all you will share our values and ambition to shape high quality health and care services for the future.

MKUH seeks colleagues as diverse as the population we serve, and we are committed to diversity and inclusion and welcome applications from everyone. 

If you can see yourself reflected in our values and ambitions, we would love to hear from you.
