Prospectus is delighted to be partnering Diabetes UK, a national health charity working to make sure that those affected by diabetes get the best care and support they need to live well with their condition and avoid life-changing complications. They're leading the way by funding critical research, improving healthcare and treatment so they can reach their vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm. At an exciting period of change, they are looking to recruit a Director of Services to play a vital role in their continued mission to ensure that beneficiaries live well and confident lives, away from stigma and discrimination.
Diabetes is the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time. There are currently more than 3.9 million people in the UK diagnosed with diabetes, and just under 1 million more with undiagnosed type 2.
As their Assistant Director of Services, you will play a pivotal role in the leadership and growth of their services and support for people with diabetes, ensuring continued operational excellence. You will ensure that their services are aligned to their strategic goals, are suitably scaled to meet required need, and will build strong external partnerships to ensure reach is achieved, and that more beneficiaries are supported. You will build, lead and develop a high performing team. You will also play a key charity wide strategic leadership role as the co-lead for their Outcome Living Well.
To be considered, you must be a leader who can build on the strengths of a great team, who is passionate about delivering high quality support services on a UK wide scale. You must have demonstrable experience of developing operational excellence and of working with people affected by health inequalities to inform service delivery. You must have experience of business planning and service development, as well as leading within a matrix environment.
Please apply with a Word copy of your CV; a covering letter is not required at this stage.
