Introduction from the Chief Executive

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for taking the time to visit the mini-website dedicated to the recruitment of our Director of Finance post. I hope you find the site informative, and that it helps you in your decision to apply for this important post at our Trust.

As a new Foundation Trust we are embarking on one of the most important times in our history. We have come a long way over the past four years and have consistently improved our services, reputation and financial stability. We are rated as Excellent for our Quality of Services and Good for our Use of Resources and hope to achieve a double excellent this year. We have a clear vision to bring “First Class Care” close to our patients not only within the hospital itself but increasingly to community settings.

We are not resting on our laurels and have an exciting future planned over the next five years with reconfiguration of our estate to provide 21st century patient facilities and the redesign of our services using lean methodology.

I believe we have a lot to be excited about. However we know that the coming years are going to be challenging for the NHS with lower levels of growth funding combined with high public expectations of quality, safety and experience. That’s why we need someone with enthusiasm and energy to enhance our team at Board level.

We need a Finance Director who is going to play a major role in helping us deliver on our ambitious vision for Burton Hospitals. We are looking for a consummate financial professional who can join our experienced and dedicated top team. If you feel that you have the skills, experience and ambition to join us then I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely

Paula Clark
Chief Executive
