  • Supporting AHP leadership capacity and capability within the region.
  • Providing timely strategic advice and intelligence on AHP workforce supply and transformation to HEE, NHS England, NHS Improvement and stakeholders.

As an advisory body to HEE for over 10 years, this is an important and exciting time as we focus on the Long Term Plan and Interim NHS People Plan. 

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from AHP leaders in the North West in the following roles:

  • Chief AHPs, AHP Directors or Assistant/Associate Directors working in NHS provider organisations in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside, and Lancashire and South Cumbria - including mental health and learning disability.

This is an exciting opportunity to support the AHP workforce across the region and nationally. We are looking for people with strong professional networks and experience in strategic influencing and decision making, partnership working and leadership. We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) colleagues.
