Deputy Director of HR
East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
East Sussex

We provide acute hospital and community health services for people living in East Sussex and surrounding areas.  Our services are mainly provided from two district general hospitals, Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH both of which have Emergency Departments and provide care 24 hours a day. They offer a comprehensive range of surgical, medical and maternity services supported by a full range of diagnostic and therapy services. Our community staff also provide care in the patient’s own home and from a number of clinics and GP surgeries.

We employ over 6,000 dedicated staff with an annual turnover of £380 million.

We’re on an improvement journey and aspire to be Outstanding by 2020. We have made progress in delivering the target of treating and discharging or admitting 95% of patients within four hours in our emergency departments. We are now regularly exceeding 90%, and are in the top 30 Trusts in the country. In June 2018 the CQC rated the Trust as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ in almost all of the services they inspected. For the first time, ‘Outstanding’ ratings were given in three categories. The CQC noted the Trust had made a marked improvement in the quality of its care and concluded that the Trust no longer needed to be in special measures for quality. However, we remain in special measures for finance but have made significant progress towards financially sustainable, while continuing to make improvements to quality and safety and hope to exit special measures this financial year.

The success of such a programme of transformation will always be dependent on those who are responsible for shaping and delivering it, and at ESHT we are extremely proud of our talented and dedicated staff. We recognise that the future of care will look very different so we need to make we have the right people with the right skills. Our Deputy Director of HR plays an important role in ensuring we have an effective workforce as well as the right people policies and procedures to support and develop them. We have a well respected and highly effective workforce function and are looking for an exceptional individual to join our team to lead on the development of our organisation and its people to ensure that we truly are fit for the future.
