The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK. 

Q is an ambitious initiative connecting thousands of people working to make health and care better across the UK and Ireland. Q offers a vibrant networking and development programme, a participatory grant funding programme and ground-breaking improvement Labs.  Q is part of respected charity the Health Foundation, working in partnership with organisations across the UK and Ireland. 

The Q Strategy and Development Lead plays a pivotal part in shaping and delivering the strategy for the Q Initiative.

This post will lead the development of our cross-cutting strategy for Q’s long-term sustainability.  We have big ambitions: with an indicative 10 years backing and £50m+ funding from our partners, we now need to chart a path to a new funding mix and increased organisational independence.    

Critical to success will be working collaboratively with the Q Director, new Board, and Leadership Team and grounding future plans in our mission and ways of working as a team.     

Not just about bold strategy, this post also holds delivery accountability for Q’s innovative grant funding programme (Q Exchange) and for leading delivery of our newest offer – bringing together improvement leaders across the UK and Ireland - from concept to scale. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for a senior leader to join a widely respected and dynamic team.  Naturally collaborative, you’ll bring flexible strategy skills and business development experience, with a focus on working creatively with others.
