Chief Executive Officer Recruitment

Welcome from our Chair, Sir Ron Kerr

NHS Providers is a unique membership organisation at the forefront of an extraordinary set of challenges within UK and global healthcare. Whether that’s responding to the pandemic and its aftermath, the transition to system working or highlighting members’ concerns and achievements, we act as a single, representative voice for acute, mental health, community and ambulance trusts. The role of providers and their membership organisation has never been more important.

We are looking for an inspiring and innovative Chief Executive to lead the next stage of our work, delivering our strategic vision, spreading and embedding our inclusive culture, and helping members and their system partners to drive improvement and innovation. The CEO will extend and strengthen close relationships with members and have a strong public profile, speaking for members’ interests in the media and influencing government and key national decision makers.

We are looking for candidates who can navigate a fast moving political and policy landscape with a proven executive track record within complex service delivery organisations. Whether your experience is within healthcare, public or commercial sectors, you will have demonstrable affinity within the health sector and its challenges as well as an excellent grasp of the health policy landscape. Success in leading through periods of great challenge while delivering sustainable organisational and cultural change is essential and you will bring strong commercial acumen, effective partnership collaboration and extensive national and social media experience.

This website offers you an insight into who we are, what we do, and our strategic aims.  Once you have read about us, I hope you will take the opportunity to speak in confidence to Robin Staveley, Melanie Shearer or Joanna Riley of GatenbySanderson.  I also look forward to talking to you during the process.

Sir Ron Kerr, Chair, NHS Providers
