Vacancy Description

There is a vacancy for a Non-executive director at Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust.  We are looking for a strong team player with excellent interpersonal skills, and the ability to bring challenge and support to the board and its committees. The successful candidate will chair the Trust’s Audit and Risk Committee.  This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care, with a particular interest in mental health and learning disability services.  You will have recent and relevant financial experience gained in a complex organisation. This will include board or very senior level experience, ideally with a recognised financial qualification, and experience of audit or risk gained in a governance setting. You will also need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the Board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust

All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.

As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role.  These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Model.

Applicants should live in or have strong connections with the area served by the Trust.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve.

We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.  

Our recruitment processes are conducted in accordance with the Code of Governance to ensure that they are made on merit after a fair and open process so that the best people, from the widest possible pool of candidates, are appointed
