Vacancy Description

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust is seeking a new Non-executive Director with experience of HR/Organisational Development.

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust is no ordinary Trust. It holds a unique position in the Stockport community as the provider of healthcare to its population, and it is one of its largest employers. It offers a number of specialist services, including our highly rated stroke service, and plays a key partnership role within Greater Manchester, Stockport and East Cheshire.

We offer a number of specialist services and play a key partnership role with Greater Manchester, Stockport and East Cheshire.

This is an exciting time to join the Board at Stockport NHS FT. We are seeking an individual who understand and are committed to developing a positive culture, one that supports our strategy of “Making Stockport a great place to work.”

Person Specification

We welcome diverse and fresh perspective; innovation and inclusive leaders who thrive with accountability and ambiguity. Comfortable in challenging at board level in complex organisations; you will be politically astute, creative and focussed on quality. You will bring to life our values as you promote the highest standards of integrity and corporate governance, ensuring that quality, finance and operational demands are held in balance.

We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve, we are therefore seeking to improve the diversity of our Board to make it truly representative of our workforce and local population.

We are keen to receive applications from all protected characteristics and those who either have a strong connection to their local community or those with lived experience, either as carers or service users. We are particularly keen to receive applications from BAME (people who are from black, Asian and minority ethnic) communities or those identifying as having a disability, who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.
