Who should apply?

This programme is aimed at directors aspiring to lead at chief executive level in an NHS accountable role focused on both service provision and system development within the next 12-24 months.

This programme is likely to appeal to exceptional individuals who may be NHS executives in NHS provider Trusts, or individuals operating in senior systems leadership roles with responsibility for achieving significant organisational collaboration (e.g. NHS commissioning organisations, NHS Improvement and NHS England, Local Authorities, Department of Health, the 14 Arm’s Length Bodies and others).

We welcome applicants who can demonstrate the skills, experience and qualities required to be credible candidates for leading an organisation responsible for the provision of healthcare at chief executive level within the next 12-24 months.

 “The NHS is a vibrant healthcare system full of complex, challenging, exceptional organisations. Chief Executive roles represent the pinnacle of public service – the opportunity to lead a service which provides care to millions of people, a fulfilling work environment for thousands of people and a large network of other public and private sector leaders with which to share task.”
