Deputy Head of School - Anaesthetics

An outstanding individual is sought to support the Head of School to lead the School of Anaesthesia. The role of Deputy Head of School is to work alongside the Head of School to support the Postgraduate Dean in leading the delivery of a wide range of functions, aligned to the Health Education England mandate.

The Deputy Head of School is professionally and managerially accountable to the Postgraduate Dean and the Head of School. The Deputy Head of School will focus upon improvement of learner supervision, assessment and experience, engagement of faculty and ensuring effective educational outcomes, both now and in the future. The role is evolving and will also focus on whole workforce transformation and developing multi-professional links.

Applicants require strong leadership and communication skills and the ability to work effectively as a member of a multi-professional team.  Applicants should have a track record of successfully delivering change in a complex working environment.

The appointee will be seconded to Health Education England, working across Yorkshire and the Humber, with payment to their current employer at the rate of up to 2 sessions per week.  The employing organisation will therefore remain the post-holder’s employer. It is expected that the employing organisation will have given prior agreement (at least tacitly) to the application.
