Chief Finance Officer

Posted 16 September by NHS Business Services Authority

The three Coventry and Warwickshire CCGs ( Coventry & Rugby, Warwickshire North and South Warwickshire) are focused on maximising health outcomes for local patients. We believe this is best achieved by greater integration and more joint working, so we have agreed to consolidate our leadership and appoint a single Chief Finance Officer. The post holder will be instrumental in providing financial leadership within our health system, supporting the transition to a single strategic commissioning voice as soon as possible in line with the NHS Long Term Plan, engaging leaders through ‘place’, and helping us to influence and shape the future development of a mature Integrated Care System with health and social care partners.

This role will be stimulating and challenging in equal measure. To support our journey, we are seeking a transformational, partnership-oriented senior leader with a strong commitment to collaboration and co-production. You will have a clear vision for integrated care, be passionate about addressing the wider determinants of health, and have a strong track record of driving and delivering significant change across large and complex organisations.

You will be politically astute, have excellent interpersonal skills and have the ability to harness the collective power of a strong and established group of health and care leaders. Importantly, too, you will be able to inspire our staff, create a positive and aligned culture across our organisations, and highly value the contribution of patients and residents in decision making.

The Chief Finance Officer will be responsible for developing a credible financial strategy and robust financial systems across our three organisations that will have a combined commissioning spend of approximately £1.4bn. The post holder will be responsible for the CCG’s finance functions and reporting CCG finances to the individual governing bodies, ensuring the CCGs maintain the highest standards of accounting, audit and governance, and can assure the Clinical Chairs that the CCGs finance and resources are being managed with probity. Candidates must have acquired significant leadership experience at board level and will possess an in-depth understanding of the health system.

Closing date for Applications: 25th September 2020

Final interviews will be held on: Tuesday 13th October 2020.

We are committed to eliminating discrimination and promoting equality and diversity in its own polices, practices and procedures and in those of their partners
