London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust (LNWUH) cares for the people of Brent, Ealing, Harrow and beyond and has a vacancy for a non-executive director.  This is an exciting time for the trust as it moves forward to deliver its mission of providing excellent care in the right setting by “putting patients at the heart of everything we do”.

This is an ideal opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

The successful candidate will also contribute to committee work such as Safety & Quality, Workforce & Equality, Finance and Performance, Audit, Appointments and Remuneration Committees.

We are seeking candidates from a broad range of disciplines who can use their experience to:

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the unitary board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development and execution
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust
  • work collaboratively as part of the north west London sector

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services and will have:

  • Senior level experience gained in complex and culturally diverse private or public sector organisations
  • A sound understanding of strategic execution/implementation and risk management; and

Any interest in to the following areas would be helpful but are not essential:

  • Operational systems, processes and standards for people intensive activities, and eliminating variance in performance
  • Financial or commercial, including internal and external audit practice

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 live in or conveniently to or have some connections with or otherwise be able to demonstrate an interest in the Trust’s work in Brent, Ealing and Harrow or beyond.

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.  We aim to reflect in the composition of our board the communities of patients that we serve.    

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.
