A new year brings new changes at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust! We are pleased to announce that we have officially appointed Funmi Onamusi as our brand-new Chief People Officer.
Before joining our outstanding Trust, Funmi previously worked at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, where she worked as the Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and was responsible for the inclusion agenda for 14,000 staff and one million patients. In this role, she led the development of the Trust's Roadmap to Inclusion 2022-2024, which sets out the steps King's is taking to become a more inclusive place to work and be treated. Before joining King's, Funmi worked for the global management consultancy EY (formerly Ernst & Young) in their workforce transformation team and was Director of HR and Operations in the charity sector.
Our Chief Executive, Dr Jane Padmore, announced the news to staff along with saying:
"With a career that spans 20 years across consulting and industry roles, Funmi's experience includes strategic human resources, workforce development and talent management. She will be a welcome addition to the Trust and to our health and care system when she joins us in April 2023."
