Do you want to make a real difference? Are you an experienced, inspirational person looking for a challenge? Can you provide visible, energetic and credible leadership of transformation? Do you have the passion and flair to encourage others to achieve and sustain excellent patient care?


NHS Southampton City CCG is currently seeking to appoint an individual to lead change as part of our System Delivery team. This will involve working across acute, community and primary care services to transform pathways and meet the aims of the NHS Long Term Plan for specific pathways including Long Term Conditions and Cancer. This is a significant role and presents an opportunity for the right person to be at the heart of strategic planning, leadership and change in healthcare in Southampton. As part of the CCG’s team, and collaborating closely with our clinical leaders, you will play an important role in shaping the future development of services and the organisation. You will work closely with organisations in and around Southampton across the health, social care and voluntary sector to affect sustainable strategic change and improvement.


You will be able to think strategically and also have a track record of partnership working and delivering tangible outcomes.


You will have the ability to engage with a range of stakeholders and also have the credibility and capability to work collaboratively with clinical staff.


Attitude and aptitude are more important than a deep knowledge and experience of the NHS.

Please note the following before applying:

1. Closing date: we reserve the right to amend the closing date based upon the number of applications received. Vacancies attracting a high volume of applications may therefore close earlier than advertised.

2. Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Border Agency requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit UK Border Agency website.

3. Interviews: all shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a face-to-face interview.

4. Unsuccessful applications: if you have not been contacted within 3 weeks of your application, we regret that you will not have been offered an interview on this occasion.

Please be aware that anyone who is included in the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) barred lists will commit an offence if they engage, or seek or offer to engage, in a regulated activity from which they are barred.
