Veredus has a strong team of health experts working in the UK and internationally, to develop leadership capacity and capability across the full range of healthcare organisations. 

We recruit talented Board leaders and senior clinical staff at a national, regional and local level in regulatory, policy, commissioning and provider organisations; in acute, mental health and community services across the public, private and not-for-profit markets.

The health sector is experiencing unprecedented change given a new Heath and Social Care Act and continuing economic pressures.  These are coupled with the challenges of an ageing population, the availability and cost of new treatments and greater involvement of patients in the care they receive, making healthcare a very exciting and stimulating sector to work within.  We acknowledge the opportunities and challenges faced by healthcare organisations and see ourselves as part of the sector, not remote from it. Our team understands your perspective – one of our Directors is a former Chief Executive and currently an NED for a not-for-profit hospital. 

The steep change required for innovation, improving performance and service transformation influences the skills that we seek out in potential candidates for leadership roles, together with a requirement for increasing levels of entrepreneurial and commercial acumen. We also understand the need to develop leadership within the sector as well as encouraging applications from leaders outside of the sector who are able to make the transition into a complex, politically high profile environment.

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional client and candidate care, which has been recognised in a high level of repeat business from our clients. Client comments include: “Our expectations have been met or exceeded whenever we have used them – very professional team who understand health” and, for a particularly hard to fill appointment, “Veredus demonstrated flexibility and tenacity in finding us the right person”.  Candidates’ comments include: “The whole process was superb, and a pleasure to go through. Feedback and support was plentiful” and “I felt very taken care of, valued and respected”.

Veredus is one of the largest suppliers of Senior Interim Managers into the health sector in the UK. We can provide Interim Managers with experience in the health sector at Chief Executive, Executive Director, Senior Manager and Programme/Project Manager levels across all of disciplines at very short notice. As part of a much larger team that covers all areas of the public and private sectors, we can also offer candidates from other sectors where appropriate.

We are expert at interpreting a client’s requirements and identifying, at short notice, candidates that will fit the brief and fit into the organisation’s culture. We work closely with the Department of Health, health & social care regulators, the NHS community and with healthcare membership bodies. During this period of enormous change, Veredus is perfectly positioned to support clients in navigating their way through the changes, thereby improving organisational performance and sustainability.
