Our Organisation

NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.

Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.

We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.

At the NHS, we are reminded every day of how important life is. As a flexible working friendly organisation, we want to be sure that you can work in a way that is best for us and for our patients, and for you. Speak to us about how we might be able to accommodate a flexible working arrangement whether that’s job share, part time or another flexible pattern. If it works for the service, we’ll make it work for you.

The NHS in England is recruiting its Director for Sustainable Development.

Your primary job will be to get the NHS to net zero as rapidly as possible.

A route map is being modelled by the NHS Net Zero Expert Panel. Your role will be to take that work, and design and drive implementation. You will provide leadership for all NHS activity on sustainable development.

This role offers a highly unusual opportunity to make an impact at national scale, both on climate change and on health, by changing many facets of how the NHS and its wider supply chains work.
