Your experience in corporate leadership in or adjacent to the care sector, coupled with a proven track record of establishing high standards and performance, will make you a strong candidate. Experience in successfully leading change, managing the delivery of a complex array of services, and building effective relationships with key stakeholders is essential. Your strong knowledge and understanding of legislative and regulatory requirements in the care sector, along with experience in delivering service improvements, will set you apart.
