Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board

Director of Place & Partnerships

Attractive Salary

Joined Up Care Derbyshire (JUCD) serves 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, life expectancy in our populations is still 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. 

We are seeking a forward-thinking and engaging Director of Place & Partnerships who will report to our Chief Strategy and Delivery Officer, Michelle Arrowsmith, who is also our Deputy Chief Executive. This is an outstanding opportunity to join and lead an established team and work as an instrumental system leader to deliver our Integrated Care Strategy. This is a broad role with responsibility for leading all community health commissioning activity and establishing effective partnerships and integrated structures across health and care services that will drive ongoing delivery of improvement; responding to population priorities and reducing health inequalities at Place. Quickly building trusted relationships with our partners, you will provide assurance to our Board and regulators, and a clarity of direction and purpose for our teams.

An experienced, inclusive, and politically astute senior leader, with significant experience in the public, voluntary, or community sector, you will bring a track record of leading strategy development and transformation in complex health or care related environments and across organisational boundaries. Demonstrating passion and determination, your exceptional communication skills will allow you to build credibility and to engage a wide range of stakeholders to deliver key objectives. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your career and bring your talents to a key system leadership role, working with influence to shape health and social care services, and the wellbeing of our populations for the future.
