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 experience gained in complex situations and organisations in the following area:

Successful track record with a background in investment, funding or brokering and experience of working to the standards set by external regulators e.g. financial services authority. Commercial background which will support the development opportunities and growth of the Innovation District within the redevelopment of the LGI site (Building the Leeds Way).

Whatever your background, LTHT is interested in your ability to add to the existing board members’ life experience and bring personal insights into one or more of the following:

  • The experience of gender and women’s issues
  • Younger People
  • Those who are open about their faith
  • The lives of people from socially deprived backgrounds
  • Those who live with a disability
  • Those who are openly L/G/B/T/Q+

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.

Applicants should either have strong connections with the Leeds area or the ability to travel to Leeds to meet the required time commitment.

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.
