​Find your next big challenge at the heart of HMRC’s transformation

Are you up for the challenge of delivering transformation on a massive scale? Do you already have hands-on experience of successfully driving through cultural transformation? Are you an experienced leader with proven ability to develop a motivated, engaged and highly performing workforce? If so HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can offer you the opportunity to be involved in one of the largest transformational agendas in the UK, working for an organisation of over 58,000 people, with 50 million customers across the UK and revenue in excess of £500 billion a year.

HMRC are looking for their next Chief People Officer (CPO) – a key strategic leadership role in one of the biggest departments in central Government. The CPO is responsible for the people agenda across HMRC and is pivotal to delivering the large-scale workforce planning, leadership and skills elements of HMRC’s transformation. It is HMRC’s people that are at the heart of the transformation as the organisation moves towards its vision for 2020; becoming smaller, more highly skilled and based in fewer locations.

With a budget of almost £90million a year, the CPO leads the 900 strong HR community. A member of HMRC’s Executive Committee, reporting directly to the Chief Executive, the CPO will have overall accountability for HR strategy, HR operations across HMRC’s lines of business and HR Shared Services. They will also have a broader remit in supporting the Civil Service’s journey in developing HR capability right across Government.

This is a unique opportunity to fulfil an important role that will have measurable impact in HMRC. The scale of change, size of the department and its ambition for its people means that you are unlikely to find a bigger professional challenge within Government.

Russell Reynolds Associates are HMRC’s recruitment partners on this role. For further information about the role, including full instructions of how to apply, please follow the link below to the position specification or call +44 (0)20 7343 3637 for assistance.

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust
Non-Executive Director


London, UK
1606-012L

World Class Care and Expertise
The Royal Free London began in 1828 as a pioneering organisation in healthcare delivery and it continues to lead improvements in healthcare in the 21st century. Achieving Foundation Trust status in 2012, the trust offers an exceptionally wide range of local and specialist services, and is proud to have some of the best clinical outcomes in the country. It has the only high security infectious diseases unit in the UK, is a leading transplantation centre for liver, kidney and bone marrow transplants, and has one of the UK’s leading plastic surgery units. The trust is also a campus of UCL Medical School and a founder member of UCLPartners. It has recently integrated with Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals, pursuing an ambitious strategy to expand its footprint further afield in creating one of the largest acute trusts in the country, with some 10,000 staff on 30 sites, and operating income in the last financial year of c. £950m.

In September 2015, the Royal Free Hospital was named among NHS England’s ‘acute care vanguards’, tasked with spreading excellence in hospital services and management across the NHS. The vanguard brings together a range of acute providers to create a group of hospitals, connected by a single group centre, providing support services at scale to drive standardisation and improve clinical and financial viability. This represents a continuation of the trust’s strategy to deliver world class care at scale and enables the Royal Free to progress each of its governing objectives. As the Royal Free evolves in the coming months, the current governance structure will be subject to review.

The trust board comprises both executive and non-executive directors and is responsible to the regulator, NHS Improvement, and then to Parliament, for the performance of the trust. Non-executive directors work as members of a unitary board to ensure the performance and direction of the trust, to set strategy, and both to appoint and hold executive directors to account, providing constructive support and challenge as required. They also work collaboratively with members of the Council of Governors, who represent the interests of local people, patients, staff and stakeholders. At this exciting and challenging time, the Royal Free London now wishes to recruit a new non-executive director. This individual will ideally possess financial and commercial experience, plus board level leadership experience acquired in a large, complex, customer-facing and quality-focused organisation. Exposure to business transformation as well as post-merger integration would also be helpful. A strong commitment to the Royal Free’s values, to the NHS as a whole, and to the communities Royal Free serves, will be important.
