Four high-profile senior posts are vacant at the Southern Health and Social Care Trust.

The roles of director of older people and primary care, director of mental health and disability services, and director of finance, procurement and estates come with a salary of up to £97,000 each.

They mark the latest personnel shake-up in the trust after Shane Devlin, formerly chief of the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, took on the chief executive post in March.

Last month he announced the trust was also seeking a medical director, which he said was the first of five senior executive appointments to be released

The trust said the positions have become available through retirement of current post-holders.

Mr Devlin said: "This is an exciting time to join our trust as we work towards transforming health and social care to meet the changing needs of our population.

"We look forward to welcoming highly motivated individuals to join our senior team who will be instrumental in strategically leading our organisation into the future."
