Vacancy Description

The North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust is looking to appoint two new Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) to its Board.  These are exceptional opportunities to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of the people served by the Trust.

Working closely with the Trust’s Chair, your role will be to help ensure that the Trust fulfils its statutory and legislative responsibilities through utilising your professional skills and perspective to add value to the governance and strategic development of the Trust, holding senior managers to account, and offering collaborative challenge and advice. You are likely to have close links with the Trust’s catchment area of Enfield and Haringey and will be committed to making a difference to the way care is delivered to patients.

The North Middlesex values and promotes diversity. We 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, and therefore we would particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who are under-represented in non-executive roles.

Person Specification

You will be a collaborative individual who is progressive, ambitious and committed, with a proven record of delivery and ability to establish relationships across complex stakeholder landscapes. You will be able to provide constructive challenge as necessary and be able to satisfy yourself as to the appropriateness and integrity of the information that comes to the Board, and the efficacy of the controls and systems in place to ensure the good governance of the Trust.

It is expected that you will bring fresh perspectives to governance, reflecting your wider experience and skill-sets.  You will have held a senior leadership or consultancy position, preferably operating at Board or at a strategic level. You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health and care services.

We are specifically looking for senior level experience in the following areas:

Post 1

  • Recent, relevant corporate finance experience in a large and complex Public or Private sector organisation, ideally with a recognised financial qualification, and a specific interest or expertise in audit with the capacity to chair our Audit Committee.

Post 2

  • Recent experience of strategic community engagement with diverse social, economic and cultural groups served by the Trust, particularly black and minority ethnic communities. This may have been gained through the voluntary or not-for-profit sectors, community involvement or business initiatives.

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work alongside other NEDs and Executive colleagues as an equal member of the Board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • hold the Executive Management Team to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the Trust

All NEDs 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.

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.
