Have you ever wondered how someone gets to be Chief Executive of an NHS trust. Well just like you got your job, by applying for it. And just like the job advert you responded to the employers are clearly looking for a superman.
If you look at this advert you will see what I mean. In their next CEO they are looking for “an outstanding CEO...........with a demonstrable track record of achievement” although previous hospital experience is only “preferable”. It goes on, and on demanding a visionary person showing strong leadership and the ability to inspire staff.
With a likely salary in the order of £150k there will probably be no shortage of applicants. If you are interested in this post, but don’t think you measure up to these expectations, don’t let that put you off. No CEA I have ever met has measured up to them either.
