Introduction --------- About Us ---------Opportunities---------Apply---------Further Reading

Following my appointment as Chief Executive in April 2018, I am delighted to be at the heart of community services in Kirklees and its surrounding districts, and having a significant impact on its local population and communities. Over the next three years, we will make our vision a reality and have set four key strategic priorities taking us forward to 2021. These are:

  1. Delivering High Quality of Care
  2. Improving Population Healthcare
  3. Making a Difference in Communities
  4. Be a Sustainable Organisation

Delivering high quality care remains our number one priority but, as a social enterprise, generating social value by making a difference to our communities is also at the heart of our strategic plans. Underpinning this Strategy will be an annual Operating Plan that will set out how we will go about achieving our aspirations so that by 2021 we remain a successful, sustainable organisation, making a positive difference to the people and communities we serve.

Patients, the public, partners and commissioners will understand that Locala is more than a community health and social care provider; we are a social enterprise and a member owned organisation. As such we will maximise our social value, improving the economic, social and
environmental well-being of local people and our communities.

I am looking for two innovative Executive Directors – an Executive Director of Finance and a Director of Organisational Development & People who can assist me in driving forward our objectives and join me on our journey, helping shape the future of the organisation and the services for Kirklees and the surrounding districts
