The Challenge

The two year General Management and three year Financial Management schemes will stretch and develop a group of aspiring senior managers with guided support to deliver high quality improvements to patient services. Individuals can expect a tough, hands-on learning experience, working alongside multi-disciplinary teams, gaining the management skills needed to ultimately improve the health of everyone in Wales.

We are looking for individuals with the talent and drive to improve our patients’ experience, who will learn practical management skills and grow their leadership strengths to earn the reputation of hard-working professionals who deliver results in a complex and fast paced environment.

The level of complexity; unprecedented financial pressures; partnership working across sectors; increased focus on improvement productivity and safety – as well as the rising expectations of patients and technology revolutionising work, requires a new leadership skill shift. Regardless of profession or background the new skill shift will be required by those leading organisations in health and the wider public sector. Applicants will undergo an intensive assessment process, against the NHS Wales Core Competence Framework for Managers and Supervisors, Behaviours and Core Principles of NHS Wales.

Successful applicants will build on their assessment experience and continue to develop their leadership competencies, behaviours and values with individual development plans for continued professional development.
