Dear Colleague

Thank you for expressing an interest in our new role of Executive Director of Partnerships and Strategy, the role which will also be our Deputy Chief Executive.

It is, we believe, an exciting, stretching, patient focused and value adding job in a very special organisation. As Chief Executive I want you, as a potential applicant for what is such a significant post, to know that we have been stepping up our pace and focus for over a year.  On the back of our CQC rating of ‘Good’ last year we are on our journey to ‘outstanding’.  You will work closely with me and the rest of the Board to shape our strategic direction, and to create a dynamic environment of ambition that permeates the whole organisation.  You will personally drive our work with partners creating positive, constructive and open dialogue with people who use our services, their carers’ and loved ones, partner and other agencies including those in the third sector. 

It’s a role that offers you significant autonomy, a broad framework to work within and the opportunity to represent KMPT externally.  The role is a key component to our continuing success.  We are not perfect and we have much to do but you would be joining a very happy, energetic and committed team of executives and a supportive and focused board. You would also become a member of what many of us describe as the KMPT family.

We are looking for that great combination of passion for the services we provide, a strategic perspective to keep us at the forefront of current thinking, and importantly someone who completely gets why what we do matters so much.

I am not in his letter going to give you organisational facts and figures, you will be more than able to find those for yourself elsewhere in this website.

What I want to give you is a flavour of us as a Trust, a sense of what we're looking for and where we're going.

If you like the sound of us, please contact us. My exec team's details are within this website, and my mobile number is below; Robin Staveley of GatenbySanderson is available on 07789 273778, if you want a confidential conversation with him first. We are committed to finding the right person for this key role and are always happy to talk to prospective candidates. Call us!

With Best Wishes
