There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH). This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the Trust. The Trust is seeking a Non-executive Director with skills and experiences in Finance who will serve as the Chair of the Audit Committee.

Person Specification

Candidates will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and to the promotion of excellent health care services and will need to be able to demonstrate experience of:

  • Recent and relevant financial experience together with a financial qualification.
  • You should ideally have experience of having chaired or served on an Audit Committee and a good understanding of the roles of Internal and External Audit.
  • and experience of Risk Management would also be an advantage.

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

  • working alongside other Non-executives and Executive colleagues as an equal member of the Board,
  • bringing independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development,
  • holding the Executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge, and
  • shaping 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 Modelopens in a new window.

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.
