Vacancy Description

S1631

We are looking for a new Non-executive Director (NED) at Portsmouth Hospitals 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.

You will join the Trust at an exciting and challenging time. The Trust is developing an innovative strategy which demonstrates how they will deliver their vision to be recognised as the best hospital, providing the best care with the best employees. It is based both on a sound understanding of the challenges that they face in delivering an ambitious programme of change, and on a strong commitment to working in partnership with key stakeholders and partners.

Person Specification

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

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 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.

Applicants should have strong connections with Portsmouth or the surrounding areas.

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.
