Vacancy Description

We are recruiting two Non-executive Directors (NEDs) for Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust (CCS). This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

The Trust is committed to having a Board that represents the communities we serve. We particularly welcome applications from people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior level experience preferably in children’s services and/or clinical experience gained in either a medical, nursing, social care or allied discipline.

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.

The Trust provides services across the East of England and would therefore like their board to be representative of their geographical spread. In particular, they would welcome interest from applicants based in Bedfordshire and Peterborough.

  • the names, positions, organisations and contact details for three referees. Your referees should be individuals in a line management capacity, and cover your most recent employer, any regulated health or social care activity or where roles involved children or vulnerable adults.  Your references may be taken prior to interview and may be shared with the selection panel
