26th February 2019

Two major health organisations are hoping to fill senior roles, one with a salary of over £110,000.

The Belfast branch of a health and social care watchdog is searching for a chief executive with a salary of up to $110,801.

The role at the regulation and quality improvement authority will involve the successful candidate providing “corporate and strategic leadership” for the organisation. The authority monitors health and socail care here.

The chief executive is the accounting officer for the organisation reporting to the chair and responsible to the Permanent Secretary and, ultimately, a minister.

The recruitment process is part of a “major organisational reform programme against a backdrop of policy drivers for transforming health and social care in Northern Ireland”, said the organisation.

The successful applicant will also “be responsible for assuring and sustaining public confidence in the role of the regulator, promoting quality improvements in a service delivery and developing strong and effective partnerships with a range of stakeholders and sectors”

The organisation has been at the heart of many investigations in the elderly care and mental health care facilities, more recently a fresh investigation into the operations at Muckamore Abbey. And it also lifted concerns around infection prevention and control in the NI Ambulance Service (NIAS) following improvements.

Meanwhile, Praxis Care is seeking a suitable candiate for the role of director of care, operations and development NI. The salary is between £62,097 and £79,561.

Praxis Care is a charity, registered in 1983, that provides services for adults and children with a learning disability, mental ill health, aquired brain injury and for older people with dementia.

The senior leader at the charity, which offers services in Northern Ireland, the Republic, England and the Isle of Man, will oversee a period of growth and expansion that will take place over the next five years. This will include growing its staff from 1,400 to 5,000.

The successful candidate will also be responsible for delivering “high quality care services to children and adults across Northern Ireland” as well as leading operational plans.

The Southern Health and Social Care Trust is seeking an energy manager (band 7) and the Northern Health and Social Care Trust is seeking consultant radiologists for its Causeway and Antrim hospitals.

And Racecourse Medical Group in Londonderry is looking for a replacement partner in a three partner practice due to a retirement.
