Chief Transformation Officer
Salary – Competitive/ VSM in line with national guidance for newly established ICB’s
If you are looking for a stimulating challenge in an environment of positive change, come and work with the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Health and Care Partnership (BLMK). BLMK ICS is a group of four local councils, two acute NHS Trust hospitals, and local voluntary and community organisations. Their aim is to support local people to live longer, healthier lives and by default that means happier ones too. They will achieve that aim by working together with health, housing, education, and social care partners by making the best use of all their resources.
The BLMK region is one of the most interesting in the country. In Bedford borough alone there are 100 different ethnicities and 149 spoken languages. In Milton Keynes 140 languages are spoken in schools and the population is young with 27% of residents aged 19 or younger. In green and pleasant Central Bedfordshire over half of the population live in the countryside, while others reside in bustling historic market towns. There is affluence in many areas but there is severe need too. Luton is a clear example of this, the town is diverse and densely populated with over 150 languages and dialects spoken. It has above average levels of unemployment and deprivation and high levels of child poverty. That said, with 2 million jobs they are one of the fastest growing economies in England, contributing £110bn to the economy.
