Hi Lana - The type of people we?re looking to recruit and develop are innovative thinkers who look for opportunities to do things differently, while using sound judgement and evidence to make effective decisions. They should be able to thrive in a fast-paced environment with changing priorities, and to build collaborative relationships across organisational boundaries. Above all, they should have a real passion for influencing real change and making a difference to the health and social care system.
