Chief Operating Officer

​We are delighted to be partnering again with Northampton General Hospital (NGH) in seeking to recruit a Chief Operating Officer (COO) with responsibility for leading the operational running of the site. You’ll provide operational and strategic leadership to the teams, ensuring that high-quality and excellent care and safety is provided.

Northampton General Hospital and Kettering General Hospital have moved to a group management model to improve and strengthen health services in Northamptonshire and have recently achieved university hospital status. Together, they are looking to develop hospitals to be proud of by delivering centres of excellence for clinical care and be distinguished as an inclusive and collaborative employer that offers great opportunities for staff colleagues. The group ambition is to attract, retain and develop the country’s top talent. There are many exciting developments happening at NGH, not least the £15.9m funding to build a new on‐site critical care facility, which is currently under construction. You will also have an exceptional opportunity to be part of one of the most exciting system-wide transformation programmes – iCAN (Integrated Care Across Northamptonshire). This programme has already started to build sustainable services for the future. This role requires individuals with substantial experience in an acute environment, a track record of achieving sustained service change and improvement, experience of building effective and productive working relationships with a wide range of people and partners and a collaborative management style. You will create an empowering environment for teams to thrive in, inspiring them to achieve excellence in all they do.
