Chief Executive Officer – Healthcare Management Trust – Hybrid Working - £100,000 - £120,000

At the Healthcare Management Trust, we are committed to delivering the highest quality healthcare and understand that our well-trained, passionate team of employees lie at the heart of delivering the service our patients and residents expect.

The Trust was established in 1985 with the aim of relieving sickness, both physical and mental, and the preservation and protection of good health. These core objectives are achieved through our healthcare services in our hospitals, our care homes and our consultancy services.

We own and commercially operate two hospitals, Sancta Maria in Swansea and St Hugh’s in Grimsby. Each serves its local community with the highest standards of care and reinvests in supporting health promotion and research that impact directly on those communities too. We also lease operate two care homes at Marie Louise House in Romsey and Coloma Court in West Wickham primarily for self-pay residents and we provide a combination of residential and respite care for people in those communities.

The Charity continues to offer a broad range of consultancy and management services to other trustees and management of charities within the wider acute health and social care sector. In addition, we fund health-related research, scholarship projects and other areas of related grant-making to support community engagement.

The Trust raises no voluntary income, the charity’s work is funded solely through its operating income, investments and reserves. We provide access to all, without regard to the route patients and residents take in coming to us.

Our team of employees share our vision to provide high quality healthcare, and we continuously improve the skills within our workforce to ensure we maintain our position within the healthcare sector.
