Vacancy Description

There are vacancies for a Non-executive Director (NED) and two Associate NEDs at North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT). This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the Trust.

The Trust is particularly looking for candidates who can bring diversity and offer skills and perspectives that are currently under-represented on the Board.

The successful candidates will be joining NBT at a pivotal moment. Following the most recent wave of Covid-19 they will be adding their voices to a Board that will guide and support the organisation through its Renew and Recover programme.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.

NED post: You will have senior level experience in one of the following areas:

  • 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
  • HR, and workforce development expertise gained at a strategic level

Associate NED posts 1 and 2: You will have senior level experience in one of the following areas:

  • Clinical and patient safety expertise gained from medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care experience in an academic, research, regulatory or clinically focused role
  • HR, and workforce development expertise gained at a strategic level
  • Recent, relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation
  • Charity and third sector

For all posts 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 provide 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.

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.
