Vacancy Description

There is a vacancy for an Associate Non-executive Director (NED) at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT). This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the Trust.

The Associate NED role is used successfully in the NHS to support Board succession strategy and achieving a balance of Board level skills. Associate NEDs cannot participate in any formal vote at Board.

The successful candidate for the Associate role will be appointed by the Trust but may also be considered for appointment as a NED of the Board in future, should a vacancy arise and they have the appropriate skills.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.  You will have recent relevant senior level experience in the following areas:

  • Clinical experience gained in a medical, nursing or allied discipline with a strong service delivery background in Primary care and/or General Practice. The successful candidate will join the Quality and Governance Assurance Committee.
  • Knowledge of the populations needs of Primary Care Networks structures and systems for Wolverhampton
  • Ability from knowledge, skills and experience to contribute to the development of the Trust strategy including goals, business plans and objectives

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 live in or have strong connections with the area served by The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.

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.
