Vacancy Description

Ref M1876

We are recruiting three Associate Non-executive Directors (NEDs) for 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 in your community.

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

The successful candidates 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

For all posts, candidates will have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have recent relevant senior level experience in one of the following areas:

  • Clinical experience gained in either a medical, nursing or allied discipline with a strong service delivery background. The successful candidate will join the Quality and Governance Assurance Committee
  • Experience of informatics in a large complex organisation. This experience can be achieved in a range of areas in informatics, from the application of informatics to assisting the Trust in the gathering, storing, interpreting, and managing of Big Data
  • Academic or education or research experience within an education or healthcare organisation. This experience can be achieved in a range of areas including the use of data to improve quality, in education & training and in research.

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 RWT.

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.
