University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust is one of the largest teaching Trusts in the UK with sites in both Coventry and Rugby and rated as GOOD by the Care Quality Commission (CGC).

We are committed to delivering world class service and have established and embedded the UHCW Improvement (UHCWi) System in partnership with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle focusing on putting the patient first through the use of lean management systems and methodologies. We are linked to the top class universities of both Warwick and Coventry.

UHCW NHS Trust is one of the UK's leading teaching Trusts, providing acute and specialist services to a population of over 1 million. We have a strong reputation for innovation, clinical research, teaching and high-quality patient care and are the principal teaching hospital for Warwick Medical School as well as having strong connections with Coventry University.

We employ over 8,900 staff, have a turnover of £660 million and have 1.7 million patient contacts per year. The Trust comprises two busy hospitals with over 1,300 beds and 32 operating theatres, running clinical services from a number of other locations.

Our values-driven organisational development programme, and our five year partnership with the Virginia Mason Institute focus on improving services via lean methodology (called UHCWi) and are key to us achieving our vision of becoming a national and international leader in healthcare.

Our CEO not only leads one of the largest Trusts in the region, but is also the STP Lead for Coventry and Warwickshire whilst is also actively engaged with national and global bodies.

We therefore require a high calibre individual who can support a broad agenda. A self-starter, you will have a good knowledge of NHS policy, the ability to write concise briefs and presentations and be able to co-ordinate and manage high profile and sometimes competing priorities; your written and presentation skills must therefore be exemplary. You will have excellent IT and organisational skills and be able to respond quickly to address issues and problems as they arise.

This opportunity is ideal for an ambitious individual looking to consolidate their NHS experience working at a strategic level. You will be exposed to key leaders at a regional and national level and must be able to develop rapport with external and internal stakeholders.
