Final Interview Date
We are recruiting a Non-executive Director and a Designate Non-executive Director for East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. These are exceptional opportunities to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.
The Designate Non-Executive Director role is used successfully in the NHS to support Board succession, strategy and achieving a balance of Board skills. A Designate Non-Executive Director does not have a formal vote on the Board. The successful candidate will be appointed by the Trust but may also be appointed as a Non-executive Director of the Board in future should the opportunity arise and they have the appropriate skills.
You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have recent senior level clinical experience gained in the NHS from medical, nursing, academic or allied health disciplines. Board level experience would be an advantage.
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 candidates 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.
