NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board – Executive Directors


Thank you for your interest in these outstanding opportunities to shape the future of health and care for our Black Country population.

I am delighted that you are considering joining Black Country ICB. As a system we are now looking forward to the creation of the ICS and ICB which will enable us, with our partners, to make a meaningful and tangible difference in the health and wellbeing of the members of the community whom we serve.

We are proud of what we have achieved already as health and care partners working as a system and we are looking to build on this with the appointment to the Integrated Care Board executive roles.

As we enter the next phase of our system's development, we have a great opportunity to strengthen existing partnerships and create new ones; we have a chance to be part of developing a more cohesive and joined up approach within our places, with the primary aim of addressing inequalities across all aspects of the lives of the members of our communities.

We are looking for people who can relate to the needs of those in our community and who are keen to make a difference with us for our Black Country people.

We have a very solid platform on which to build our future model of working and I am excited by what we can achieve together in the next few years.

Values and behaviours will be fundamental to these roles and if you are a compassionate, inclusive leader with excellent relationship skills then we would welcome your application. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds as diversity of experiences, thinking and perspectives will enable us to be outstanding as a system.

So, if values are at the heart of your actions, and you want to make a difference for our fantastic Black Country people then I would welcome your application.
