Vacancy Description


Dudley ICP have the unique opportunity of building a new Board and are currently recruiting their Interim Executive Director team. NHS Improvement is recruiting the non-executive team, which will be a mix of interim appointments and those identified through this open competition. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the new Trust.

Dudley ICP will be holding an Open Evening for prospective candidates on 27 February 2020 at 18:00 at the Copthorne Hotel, Brierley Hill, Dudley where you will be able to hear more about our ambition and have the opportunity to meet their team.

Please contact Bev Edgar at Beverley.Edgar@nhs.net for further information. The Chair and team very much hope to meet you there.

Person Specification

As a new trust, the needs of the board will evolve and develop and will benefit from a range of different experiences and perspectives. We are looking to build an effective, diverse and entrepreneurial non-executive team with varied backgrounds including, where possible, experience from the public, private and voluntary sectors, who bring different professional skills and lived experiences. We need diverse, inclusive and compassionate leaders who not only reflect the communities the new Trust serve and the staff they employ but have the breadth of perspective and leadership style to make good collective decisions.

We are keen to meet you if you can demonstrate:

  • Clinical or patient safety expertise gained at a senior level in medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care
  • An entrepreneurial or commercial approach, having had a leading role in transforming sectors/markets
  • Digital and performance improvement expertise ideally within a context of large-scale strategic transformation
  • Skills gained at a senior level relevant to starting up a new organisation like the ICP

Whatever your background, we are interested in your ability to add to the board members’ life experience and bring personal insights into: being patient or carer of service user; experience of gender and women’s issues; engaging with diverse social, economic and cultural groups and communities; younger people; those who are open about their faith; those who live with a disability, including mental health; those who are openly L/G/B/ or T.

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services with strong governance experience that you can use 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 and service delivery
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a just and 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.

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.
