It is an exciting time to be joining us here in North West London as we are keen to make significant shifts towards prevention, more proactive care in our communities and playing our part in addressing the wider determinants of health and wellbeing. Through this we believe that we can achieve improved outcomes and improve the care we provide for the people of North West London.

Leadership and mind set will be key to our success, and so we have reviewed our Executive Team and are now looking for an Executive Director of Place who will lead the transformation of the out of hospital sector. They will lead the transformation of primary and local care and the development of the Borough Based Partnerships in collaboration with system partners and communities with a focus on integration and collaborative working and delivery of the ICS strategy at Borough level.

We are looking to recruit a high calibre leader to our team; someone who can bring a strategic vision for how our services can be transformed, combined with a track record of delivery in the portfolio areas; a systematic and system-focused approach, and someone who can be flexible and creative in delivering their functions.  We require a colleague who can work within our Board and leadership team, but also collaborate effectively with colleagues across our partner organisations.

We have a strong history of joint working across the health and care system, and a track record of delivery with many outstanding rated health and care providers.  We are looking for an innovative, inspiring, and compassionate leader with an abundance of resilience and creativity. You will provide clarity of thought and purpose when the pressure to deliver is on and just as importantly, you will embody our values: Empowering Communities, Always Inclusive, Growing Together, Driving Innovation, and Mutually Accountable.

The Executive Director of Place is an influential executive role and will join the unitary board as a non-statutory named participant.  At the heart of all roles within the ICB is the shared commitment and responsibility for meaningful participation with residents and partners, a focus on equality and addressing health inequalities.

Critically, the ICB executive team is part of a wider ICS Executive Team and works closely with provider colleagues in the system leadership across NWL to ensure effective collaboration and integration and attainment of our joint ambition. Collectively, they also support the Integrated Board and Integrated Care Partnership to discharge their responsibility and accountability to our residents.

We would be delighted to speak with you if you are excited and intrigued by what you read here. Come and join the team and be part of a system that will achieve improved access, experience and outcomes for the population of North West London.
