Vacancy Description

There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director of Bedford Hospital NHS Trust.  This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in our community.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. Candidates should have a financial or accounting qualification and/or senior level experience of finance, risk, and performance management. Knowledge of NHS operational management at board level would be an advantage. The successful candidate will chair the Finance Committee and sit on the Audit Committee and Charitable Funds Committee.

You will 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.
