Vacancy Description

Our vision at Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is to be a leading provider of outstanding compassionate care. Working with a system-wide view across the integrated healthcare landscape is a cornerstone of our approach. We are highly rated by NHS regulators, both in terms of quality and financial performance. Financial pressures and ever-increasing demand for NHS services do present an ongoing challenge to the delivery of our strategies and plans but our priority continues to be maintaining quality and safety at the foundation of all we do.

We are seeking a Non-Executive Director to undertake the role of Audit Committee Chair. The role requires you to understand the complexities of working in a multi-site operation, think beyond organisational boundaries, bring high levels of personal and business integrity and be able to ensure exemplary standards of quality, probity and governance. With experience of challenging and debating constructively in a Board environment, the sector that you have worked in is less important than your commitment and engagement with patients, carers, partners and the community.


Person Specification

The Audit Committee Chair must have a prior understanding of finance and internal control at a senior level in a complex environment and perhaps other relevant expertise such as risk management.

We are positively encouraging applications from people with diverse backgrounds and in particular applicants from BAME communities, people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ people.
