Dear Candidate

I am pleased that you are interested in applying for the position of Chief Operating Officer at the British Orthopaedic Association.  Please see our website for further information about us: http://www.boa.ac.uk

Our mission is to advance, for the public benefit, the science, art and practice of orthopaedic surgery with the aim of bringing relief to patients of all ages suffering from the effects of injury or disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

We provide good practice guides across all areas of trauma and orthopaedic surgery, many of which have a global reputation for excellence. By engaging proactively with the Government, our advice on musculoskeletal services and the future trauma and orthopaedic workforce carries weight. We are also most fortunate to benefit from the support and challenge of a highly motivated Patient Liaison Group. Lastly, we engage extensively with the medico-legal community in this important area of orthopaedic practice.

We are currently undergoing an important strategy review. This will build on work from our current strategy and set the direction for the BOA for the next 5-10 years. The role of the COO will be instrumental in supporting the development and successful implementation.

The COO will be responsible for the effective running of the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA). Under the leadership of the trustees and working closely with the wider Council, you will facilitate the development and achievement of the BOA’s strategic priorities delivering the overarching aim of caring for patients and supporting surgeons. We are looking for someone who would thrive with the multiple stakeholders that are part of our landscape, and enjoy working with the trustees and the Council. Central to the role will be a proven track record of working with and empowering staff, demonstrating fantastic operational skills, sound financial experience and show a good understanding of governance.

If this is an opportunity that appeals to you and you believe you have the required skills and knowledge plus commitment, we would very much like to hear from you.
