Vacancy Description

The Non-executive director and Associate Non-executive director will provide additional support to the Board and will contribute to a range of Board committees.

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. Associate Non-executive directors cannot participate in any formal vote at Board.

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.  You will have senior level experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Clinical quality and patient safety gained from medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care in a clinically focused, academic, research or regulatory role

  • 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.
