Deputy Foundation School Director

An outstanding individual is sought to provide leadership to the Foundation Programmes within Health Education England working across Yorkshire and the Humber. The Deputy Director will work with and support the Foundation School Director and Deputy Postgraduate Dean in leading the delivery of a wide range of functions, aligned to UK Foundation Programme Office requirements and the Health Education England mandate.

The Deputy Director of the Foundation School is professionally and managerially accountable to the Foundation School Director, Deputy Postgraduate Dean and ultimately the Postgraduate Dean. The role will focus on external relationships, engagement of faculty, and managing quality concerns to ensure effective educational outcomes. The role is constantly evolving and will also include some focus on whole workforce transformation and 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 3 PAs 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 to the application.
