Vacancy Description

We are recruiting a Non-executive Director for Norfolk Community Health and Care 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.

NCH&C serves a population of nearly 900,000 people in Norfolk with community health and care services, as well as providing a specialist Early Supported Discharge service to stroke patients in Norfolk and Suffolk. Their aim is to constantly improve patients’ lives by providing the best care, close to where they live.

The focus at NCH&C is on continually improving the quality of care offered to local people and on improving access to that care, helping people to move seamlessly from one service to another.

Specialist teams provide personalised health and care services for everyone, from babies to the elderly to improve the lives of patients, whenever and wherever they need them. They are proud to be trusted to enter their homes and be part of their communities.

NCH&C take their responsibility to their local communities very seriously and are dedicated to improving patients’ lives by providing excellent standards of NHS health and care.

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 finance experience, gained in a large, complex organisation with the ability to chair the Audit Committee, preferably with a financial qualification.

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

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.
