The post holder will work with the divisional triumvirate to ensure that any areas of poor compliance and assurance with agreed quality and safety metrics are identified and managed by directorate teams. The post holder will attend the divisional quality and safety committees and ensure a consistent approach to managing quality and safety work streams/activities is embedded and maintained by directorate triumvirates within that division.
