Vacancy Description

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services within balanced budgets. The successful candidate will have experience as a board member or of working at a senior level in a large organisation and ideally have clinical experience.

The Trust is actively working towards a diverse, gender balanced and representative workforce and welcome and encourage applications from all parts of their communities.

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work in a collegiate manner alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills, challenge and support to strategy development and implementation
  • 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.

Applicants should ideally live in or have strong connections with East Sussex or the surrounding area.

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.
