Person Specification

Essential criteria

Candidates will need to have a genuine commitment to patients, to the promotion of excellent health care services and have senior board level or equivalent experience in a large or complex organisation.

Desirable criteria

The Trust has identified that candidates with a clinical or legal background would also be an advantage bringing a different dimension to the Board and complementing the backgrounds of existing non-executive directors.

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.
