Are you a self-motivated and driven strategic leader specialising in delivering transformational change? Do you want to make a positive difference?
The Ayrshire Hospice provides specialist palliative and end of life care to support patients and their families make every day matter. Our vital work is filled with moments that make people smile during a time that can be difficult for everyone.
Why you should work for us:
Because what we do makes a real difference to people.
Because we are a passionate and warm team, driven by our shared values of being kind and compassionate, inclusive and honest with the patients and families we serve, who are at the heart of all that we do.
And we pride ourselves in having a collaborative environment with open debate and positive challenge in the pursuit of excellence.
And because we are ready and willing to transform and innovate.
About the role:
There will be a strong focus on the transformational delivery of high-quality services which not only add value, but are continuously improving. The role will also provide strategic leadership to the Governance, IT and Facilities functions of the Hospice and report directly to the Director of Operations Initiative, coupled with a sense of competitive drive, and the ability to stay focused on results is the key to achieving success. Self-assurance, and the confidence to purposely drive toward results while constantly problem-solving and engaging the commitment of others is essential.
While the job requires the ability to act independently, a sense of urgency and the confidence to handle a variety of challenges, a full commitment to the success of the Hospice and high standards of achievement are expected in this position. The emphasis is on results, and effective systems and processes that achieve results through and with people.
Location: Racecourse Road, Ayr, with a temporary decant to Lochranza Building, Ailsa Hospital, Ayr until late summer 2024.
You will be able to communicate the vision of what can be achieved and you will be a values-led leader who will inspire your teams. This is a strategic leadership role in which you will never settle for “good enough”. You will actively seek opportunities to innovate, improve, and develop in the pursuit of excellence and sustainability.
Collaborative and dynamic leadership will be at the heart of everything you do, whether leading on the strategy, advancing the role of digital technology, understanding the impact of climate change or ensuring operational efficiency.
You will have a strong track record in building effective relationships and delivering results-based service improvement across an organisation. With a proven flair for shaping change and leading people, you will have a crucial role in ensuring we continue to challenge ourselves to offer an excellent service.
A bit more about us:
Hospice care is often profoundly misunderstood and at times very challenging: the work we do is uplifting and it is a great privilege, the impact we can have is life changing. Our hospice is a bright and dynamic place to work.
