Talent and Succession Planning

NHSBT strives to be the best organisation of its type in the world. We will achieve this through having the right people, in the right roles, at the right time. This won’t happen by accident.  We must ensure everyone has the right knowledge and skills to perform their job well now, as well as opportunities to develop within role and to be aware of career options should they aspire to move in to a different role in the future

Our goal is to develop our people so that they have the competence, commitment and able to demonstrate the organisation behaviours required for current and future organisational success. 

This means having…

  • The right people, in the right roles, with the right values and behaviours
  • Offering a range of inspiring career pathways
  • All colleagues having access to the appropriate opportunities, exposure, stretch and development to enable them to fulfil their potential within their current role, and the opportunity to discuss career aspirations and to be supported to progress in alignment with organisation needs

The NHS Leadership Academy provides excellent guidance on attracting growing and retaining talent.
