Attractive Salary – Hybrid Working

The Herefordshire and Worcestershire (H&W) Integrated Care System (ICS) has strong and stable leadership across its two places and primary care networks, with excellent support from local authority and voluntary sector partners. With a strong commitment to collectively improve patient safety and quality, the Herefordshire and Worcestershire system has strong foundations upon which to use collective resources to address local challenges and improve outcomes for the people they serve.

Herefordshire and Worcestershire ICB are now recruiting for a Director of People & Workforce.  This is a new post and a key member of the Integrated Care Board Executive team and will work with partners to develop and deliver the long-term people strategy for the ICS, ensuring that it reflects and integrates the people strategies of all relevant partner organisations within the ICS.  This is an exciting opportunity to shape and ensure all the people aspects of existing or new system strategies are robust, comprehensive, affordable, and consistent with the overall goals of the ICS. A role of significant importance, you will support a strong culture of public accountability, probity, and governance.

Innovative and forward thinking, you will personally bring a track record of experience in leading a people agenda in a large complex organisation. Your progressive organisational development skills as well as your ability to persuade and influence others will be easy to see. Open to different sectors, you don’t need to be an expert in healthcare but must understand and be committed to the wellbeing of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire workforce, and equality and diversity. Role modelling the values and behaviours of the ICB, and compassionate leadership are fundamental requirements.
