Part Time


Are you looking for a role where you can utilise your leadership and management skills to best advantage within a friendly, enjoyable workplace? If so Appletree Medical Practice may be just the place for you!

 We are looking for a person with the skills, experience and personal attributes to lead us in sustaining and improving the delivery of primary healthcare to our patient population. A strategic thinker you will have an excellent track record, not necessarily limited to General Practice or the NHS, in working collaboratively with other stakeholders, internal and external, in the management of change and development of new processes. You will also have a good grounding in the financial management of a SME business with a substantial turnover. You will oversee the efficient and effective running of the Practice supported by a strong management team already in place.

Appletree is a well-performing practice with a strong set of values centred on its staff and patients, committed to providing a high quality, professional service within a friendly, enjoyable workplace. The successful applicant will be able to balance the strategic management of our business with the inter-personal skills to work within our practice ethos.

This is a new role for us, and for the right person it is an opportunity to work closely with the Appletree GP partners in its design and development.

The role will entail a 28 hour working week providing a flexible work/life balance, personal and professional development, an excellent remuneration package including a competitive salary commensurate with the skills and experience of the successful candidate, the NHS pension scheme and generous holiday entitlement.

This is not a day to day operational role and experience of leading a GP practice team is not a pre-requisite. We welcome candidates from a range of career backgrounds.

How does this sound to you? Do you have the skills and experience, energy and expertise, to lead us in optimising the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for GP practices? Is the role of Business Manager in the NHS-commissioned Healthcare sector one that interests you? If so we would love to hear from you.

Previous applicants need not apply.

The closing date for applications is 27th November 2019 with first interviews potentially to be held on Monday 9th December 2019.
