The Board has extremely close, longstanding links with both Aberdeen and Robert Gordon's Universities and holds a worldwide reputation for being at the forefront of medical research and innovative healthcare.

The Acute Sector of NHS Grampian provides a full range of acute care to the population of Grampian, as well as tertiary services to the north of Scotland, including the Islands of Orkney and Shetland. With an annual revenue budget of +£370M, and over 5000 staff across the whole range of professional disciplines, the Acute Sector has five divisions - Medicine, Surgery, Women & Children's, and Clinical Support Services - across our two main sites at Aberdeen and Dr Gray's Hospital in Elgin.

The NHS is currently in a period of significant change, and these posts offer the exciting opportunity to be part of that change. As a Divisional General Manager you will be a talented professional who has an outward looking, solutions based collegiate approach in ensuring the delivery of excellent health services to our patients, their families and carers. You will demonstrate commitment to service improvement to enhance quality, efficiency, effectiveness and safety at all times.

Strong inspirational leadership, management and team working skills are essential to this role. You will have extensive experience of managing the delivery of complex and challenging multi-professional services in a large complex organisation. Extended experience of working as part of a multi-disciplinary, multi-professional team, you will provide leadership and direction in the planning, management and provision of all divisional services within the context of Sector, NHS Grampian and Scottish Government objectives and ambitions. The postholder will be required to work in partnership with the Divisional Clinical Director and Divisional Chief Nurse to ensure the delivery of the above.

With the creation and development of Health and Social Care Integrated Joint Boards (IJBs), you will increasingly be required to forge relationships and work in partnership with the Local Authority and the Voluntary Sector.
