Vacancy Description

We are recruiting a Non-executive Director for the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital 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.

The Non-executive Director will be required to serve on various Board Committees and to attend occasional NHS and Trust-related training and functions.

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 finance experience gained in a large and complex organisation, with a financial qualification.  The successful candidate will chair both the Audit Committee and the Finance Committee.

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 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.

As the Trust is a world renowned specialist hospital we will accept applications from those with the appropriate experience living in the surrounding areas, ideally within an hour travelling distance from the trust headquarters in Stanmore, Middlesex.
