Welcome

Dear Candidate

Welcome to York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and thank you, in advance, for your interest in the role of Chief Executive. We are shaping a very clear vision and ambition for our Trust where we seek “To be leaders in providing great care to our communities.”

We recognise that to bring our vision and ambitions to life we need a Chief Executive with exceptional leadership skills: a clear and inspired sense of purpose, a strong communicator and a good listener, someone who really understands the benefits of working in partnership with others, an innovator, someone who recognises the need for transformation at pace in the NHS, someone who believes in the importance of staff at all levels, who is willing to listen to patients, and who cares passionately about the services they receive. 

Our ambitions for our Trust are significant and this is a remarkable leadership opportunity, but it’s not only leadership skills we seek; we are also looking for an individual who relates to the strong values which guide our behaviours.  With opportunities to develop our external partnerships and our reputation locally, regionally and nationally, this role is a compelling proposition, a once-in-a-lifetime leadership challenge and a genuine opportunity to influence the sustainable future of health services. The website should provide you with a good start in your research into this role, and I encourage you to call Robin Staveley of GatenbySanderson on 0113 205 6292, with whom you can discuss the role further.

I, and the rest of the senior team, also look forward meeting you during this process.

Susan Symington
Chair
