We are recruiting a Non-executive Director and an Associate Non-executive Director for Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust (MEHT). These are exceptional opportunities to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.
The Associate non-executive director role is used successfully in the NHS to support Board succession strategy and achieving a balance of Board level skills. Although not legally a member of the Board and does not participate in any formal vote, the individual is an integral member of the wider Board team-comprising executive and non-executive roles and attending Board and key committee meetings as required.
You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior or board level experience gained within a large complex organisation in one or more of the following areas:
- Digital and performance improvement expertise set within a context of large scale strategic transformation.
- Clinical and patient safety expertise gained from medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care experience in an academic, research, regulatory or clinically focused role.
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 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.
