LAC is a long established joint venture between several NHS organisations in London. It is hosted by Barts Health NHS Trust and this means that all LAC staff are employed by this Trust.

The Consortium Director will:

  • Report to and be a member of the LAC management board;

  • Be responsible for managing client relationships and the delivery of services to clients in line with ISO9001 2015 accredited working practices that comply with the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards and the NHS Counter Fraud Standards;
  • Develop and implement a service development strategy to increase its market share of NHS and other public sector organisations in London and to identify and realise new and complimentary service lines. The Consortium Director will directly lead all marketing and tendering initiatives in regard to the development and growth of the client base.

You will be CCAB/ IIA qualified with significant leadership experience, excellent technical skills and a sound understanding of the NHS. You will have an excellent track record for building and maintaining strong relationships with clients and be a trusted advisor. You will also need to have strong commercial skills and a proven ability to build and maintain a client base.
