Vacancy Description

S1689

We are recruiting 2 Non-executive Directors for North Bristol NHS Trust. Candidates will need to have either Clinical and patient safety expertise, or organisational development and engagement expertise.

Person Specification

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 environment in one of the following:

Post 1

  • Clinical and patient safety expertise gained from medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care experience at a senior level in an academic, research, regulatory or clinically focused role

Post 2

  • Organisational development and engagement expertise gained at a strategic level in a commercial environment

For both posts, you will need to demonstrate a commitment to the NHS and specifically North Bristol NHS Trust. You will also 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 Modelopens in a new window.

Applicants should live in or have strong connections with Bristol or the surrounding areas of North Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire.

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.
