We are looking to appoint an outstanding Chief People Officer to work with our Board and the provider Trusts across our region to transform health and care services for people living and working here.

We oversee the health and care services for an extremely diverse population of 1.8 million people living across a complex and challenging geography. Although our ICB is young, it is an exciting time to join us as we have great ambitions, and a clear plan to improve the lives of people in Lancashire and South Cumbria. 

Our vision is to develop a community-centric health and care system, delivering good outcomes with narrowing inequalities, and we are looking for a Chief People Officer, whom, as a key Board member, will work with the wider leadership team to ensure that our ambitions are met, providing professional insight, expertise and system leadership, and keeping the interests of our local population at the heart of every decision.  

As Chief People Officer, you will be pivotal in helping us to navigate the challenges of system recovery and transformation, requiring a refocus on workforce optimisation and efficiency, and alignment with new service delivery models, the embedding of our regional shared services arrangements, ONE LSC (hosted by East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust) and driving the shift in the ICB’s internal culture.

We are fortunate to work in an area with a lot of talented and passionate people and we are fully committed to our ‘PROUD’ values; ensuring that we put our people and communities first, maintain a respectful and caring environment, are open and transparent in everything that we do, and unite our system partners and communities to improve care, and deliver and transform high quality services. 

The incoming Chief People Officer will be a highly credible, enthusiastic, experienced, compassionate and an inclusive leader with significant experience in people leadership and development, bringing naturally collaborative and partnership working instincts, and the ability to provide strategic leadership across the breadth of the Lancashire and South Cumbria System. You will need to have the ability to promote opportunities for transformation and innovation and, above all, you will be committed to supporting staff to provide the best possible services to the people we serve. 

If you align with our values and possess the qualities we are seeking, we encourage you to speak in confidence with Simon Green or Rabiya Ali at Alumni Global on 07545741153 or visit for further information and details of how to apply.
