INTRODUCTION ------------ ABOUT US ------------OPPORTUNITY------------APPLY


Dear Candidate

Many thanks for taking the time to consider applying for the post of Business Partner at Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.  I hope you will find the microsite interesting and it provides the information you need to develop your application.

These are challenging times for the NHS as the Public Sector faces constraints on its funding. It is clear that new thinking and new ways of working are needed to deliver big improvements in efficiency without compromising the excellent quality of services we provide to our patients.

This is the time for the Finance Team to rise to the challenge and provide the leadership needed to transform the way the organisation manages its finances. We recognise the need to  move away from the traditional NHS way of managing finances and focus on integrating financial management into our service teams. These new Business Partner roles are critical to delivering our ambitious plans to transform financial management in the Trust.

These roles will be much more about business management than just Finance. Business Partners will also provide leadership  within our Clinical Management Teams for business planning, capacity and activity planning, activity based management, investment management, productivity improvement and procurement.

It’s clear that we need to look for something different to meet the challenges facing the Trust. I really hope you find these roles inspiring and I look forward to receiving your application.  

Marcus Thorman

Finance Director
