A proven record of delivering on targets and driven to achieving results; you must be strategic in your approach, together with a problem-solving attitude and the ability to motivate and influence others, whilst creating a strong teamwork ethos.  Knowledge and understanding of the government and private health and disability sector would be an advantage.
