Vacancy Description

We are recruiting a Non-executive Director to chair the Audit Committee for Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior level finance experience gained within in a large and complex organisation, preferably with a financial qualification.

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the Board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • 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.

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

Additional Information

We strongly recommend an informal and confidential discussion with David Highton, the Chair of the Trust Board (although Mr Highton will only be available for such a discussion on 1 March 2019). Please contact Kevin Rowan, Trust Secretary, on 01622 228 698 or via kevinrowan@nhs.net. Mr Rowan is also available to respond to any practical queries about the role.
