Senior Leadership Team
£10,000 per annum

We are Sirona care & health, a Community Interest Company committed to providing local communities with a range of high quality specialist health and social care services across South Gloucestershire, parts of Bristol and Bath and North East Somerset. For us, it’s about the personal approach; we take pride in what we do and deliver the high standard of care that we’d expect for ourselves and our families.

In return we offer an excellent range of benefits including generous holiday entitlement, paid enhancements for bank holiday/night working (where applicable), a contributory pension scheme (including, for some roles, the NHS pension scheme), a planned induction program, extensive learning and development opportunities, health and wellbeing programmes, flexible working patterns, staff excellence awards, in-house physiotherapy support and more!

We are seeking to strengthen our Board by recruiting an additional Non-Executive Director. You will work closely with the other Board members to set the strategic context within which high quality, evidence based health and social care is delivered. We are looking for someone who can play a key role in corporate leadership, governance and stewardship of Sirona care & health, and can contribute effectively to the strategic development and planning of the wider Healthier Together system. Our strong culture, ethos and values have helped us develop a strong reputation for delivering safe, efficient and effective services which service users would choose and recommend, but we also aspire to set the benchmark of excellence in integrated health and social care services for adults and children.

We have recently been awarded a 10 year contract for Adult Community Health Services in BNSSG which is a really exciting opportunity for all of us working at Sirona. We are already providing these services in South Gloucestershire and are the prime provider of the Community Children’s Health Partnership (CCHP) for Bristol and South Gloucestershire, providing high quality services to children, young people and their families.  

This means from April 2020 we will have a turnover of more than £160m and 3,500 staff.  We have ambitious plans working with our colleagues across the system, in particular in Primary Care and the Voluntary Sector, along with individuals, carers and families to transform community services.  We want to work together to transform out-of-hospital services to support people to live longer and healthier lives, accessing care and support close to where they live and ensure consistency and equity across BNSSG.
We are a not for profit, values driven organisation providing NHS and Local Authority funded community based health and social care to a standard we would expect for ourselves and those we care about.  We have a commitment to add value to the local community and a s a Social Enterprise we exist purely for this purpose.

Do you have senior leadership experience and the credibility to forge strategic alliances and build effective relationships at all levels internally and beyond the organisation?  We are particularly keen to hear from individuals in the Bristol or North Somerset area, and those with a strong commercial or education background and a strategic understanding of the digital agenda. 

At Sirona, we continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our service users and staff.  We would be particularly interested to hear from candidates from diverse backgrounds to continue to increase diversity within our Board. 

We believe it is important for all our Board and senior managers to be visible and encourage our Non-Executives to visit our services, to meet staff and the people we care for.  You would also be required to attend regular Board and committee meetings. The time commitment would be between 2 - 3 days per month.
Please read the attached candidate pack for more detailed information around Sirona and this exciting opportunity.
