Vacancy Description

We are seeking a Chair who will guide Northern Lincolnshire & Goole NHS Foundation Trust (NLaG) and Hull University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust (HUTH) through a significant and fast-paced period of collaboration and change.

The Joint Chair will lead and oversee the growing alignment of the two trusts within the Humber Coast and Vale Health & Care Partnership (ICS), including ensuring delivery of the Humber Acute Services (HAS) programme, and will at the same time, lead each individual Trust Board of Directors, ensuring that those Boards (and through them both Trusts) fulfil all their statutory, quality, financial and other responsibilities, including those to patients, the public and stakeholders. They will also chair the Council of Governors of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

Applicants should preferably have strong connections with the areas served by NLaG or HUTH.

We will particularly welcome applications from women, Black Asian and Minority Ethnic people, people with disabilities and people who are LGBTQ+, as these groups are under-represented on our Boards compared to their local population.

The Joint Chair will need to take a strategic approach to problem-solving, feel a strong sense of accountability to the local population, use excellent communication and influencing skills to bring others with them and demonstrate integrity and commitment.

The Joint Chair must ensure that communication is clear, honest and coherent, maintaining strong and effective working relationships with all key stakeholders, including local, regional and national partner organisations.

The Joint Chair will lead on shaping the culture and values, driving the vision, and ensuring collaborative and partnership working with colleagues across both Trusts.  They will be a public voice, exemplifying the best interests of the patients and key stakeholders.
