Approved Very Senior Manager (VSM) job descriptions

This page contains VSM job descriptions which have been evaluated and approved for use. CSUs should use these generic job descriptions for developing their own, either using the generic template or an existing job description. Alternatively, a CSU may wish to create a new job description either from scratch or by amending one of the descriptions below.

Please note that if creating or amending an existing job description, this will require evaluation by the Business Services Authority, and sign off by NHS England via either the Remuneration Committee, or the Executive HR Sub-committee, dates of which can be found below. Once authorised by NHS England, the role will require final ratification by the Department of Health.

Please contact Tim Pearson (Senior HR Project Manager for CSUs and CCGS) via either timpearson@nhs.net or on 07825 806 876, for further information.
