Vacancy Description

We are recruiting two new non-executive directors for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHT).  This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to people’s lives and to support one of the UK’s leading NHS Trusts as it embraces the exciting and life enhancing developments of integrated healthcare for the 21st century.

Person Specification

The ‘redevelopment’ non-executive director will bring experience of estates transformation, specifically with experience in capital raising and stakeholder management amidst complex infrastructure projects. This person will bring a strategic understanding to the Trust’s estates strategy, to advise the Trust as it modernises and improves current service sites and hospitals over the next decade. The successful candidate will demonstrate resilience, drive, positivity, and a clear ability to inspire and influence the Trust’s actions and engagement from a position of experience, integrity and authority.  Most of all they will demonstrate an ability to put patients at the centre of service provision, with a strong future focus on new and the changing needs and opportunities.

The ‘strategy and innovation’ non-executive director will bring an understanding of the strategic direction of travel in health.  They will be experiencing building strong external partnerships in healthcare, understanding environments where high quality, service, future sustainability and innovation are valued.  Ideally this person will have a good understanding of the digital agenda, of its implications on healthcare provision and be a poignant advocate. The best candidates will be those who understand, through their own leadership experience, how successful organisations adapt to embrace the future health agenda, helping the Trust to realise its vision of ‘Better Health for Life.’ Candidates will bring an understanding of how to co-create integrated plans with our partners to help us deliver our clinical strategy. This person will help the Trust to strengthen current relationships while building new partnerships, engaging widely as a thought leader across the system, with a focus on providing the best care to the patients we are proud to serve.

The Trust is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and welcomes diversity of thought, approach and background in all our people. The Trust welcomes applications from diverse candidates.

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services and 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 and supportive member of the board;
  • bring independence, external perspectives, support, skills and challenge to strategy development;
  • hold the executive to account as a ‘critical friend’ by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge; and
  • 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 NHS Non-Executive Director, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level leadership 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.
