The Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of approximately 500,000 residents across Bath and North East Somerset, West Wiltshire, Somerset and South Gloucestershire. With an income of over £400m and employing 6000 staff, the Trust has a CQC rating of ‘Good’. The RUH is part of the BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire Integrated Care System and works as part of an Acute Hospital Alliance with neighbouring Trusts Great Weston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust.

Along with the rest of the NHS and many other healthcare systems, we are now facing a very difficult set of challenges – most significantly, the need to transform healthcare, improve productivity and identify ways to deliver high quality services within the funding we have.

There are exciting opportunities to redesign services both within the RUH and across the wider system, working with our partners. 

We have created the new post of Programme Director – Financial Improvement Programme to oversee service improvement programmes of work, taking responsibility for their implementation and delivery of benefits with a particular focus on ensuring the financial benefits are delivered in line with our Finance Strategy. 

Reporting to our Director of Finance & Deputy CEO, your key responsibilities will include:

  • Leading the development and delivery of a coherent and credible Financial Improvement Programme for the Trust that will deliver the Trust’s long-term vision as well as nearer-term goals for quality, operational and financial improvement. Advising, challenging and supporting colleagues that are delivering specific change projects, as well as leading key cross-organisational change projects personally. Championing and coordinating strategic change internally and externally, helping to create an organisational culture and systems that support, enable and incentivise high quality care for our patients. Reporting progress on strategic change programme delivery to the Trust Management Executive

To succeed, you will need to bring strong skills in operational and financial management, together with experience of programme and change management. You will have worked at a senior level within a complex service delivery organisation and have led transformative programmes, ideally with exposure to financial turnaround as part of this. Previous experience of the health sector is advantageous but not essential.

In return, we offer an exciting new role where you will be in a senior role at the very heart of our drive to improve our financial sustainability, using your creativity and business acumen to help us do more for less.
