We are recruiting two Non-executive Directors to join the board of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people living in your community.

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.  You will have senior or Board level experience in at least one of the following areas:

  • Recent, relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation with the capacity to Chair the Audit Committee, preferably, with a financial qualification; or

  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust
  • demonstrate a focus on patient care and reducing inequalities

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 an 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.
