Vacancy Description

We are looking for three outstanding people to join United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT). The Board needs one person with financial experience from within a large and complex organisation, preferably with a financial qualification to chair the Audit Committee and another with a clinical background, preferably with a background in Nursing / Midwifery, Medical or the Associated Health Professions to chair the Quality Committee. We are also looking for someone with experience in performance, workforce, estates and / or financial management to serve as an Associate Non-Executive Director. For all of these roles, we are looking for people who will be able to bring to life the Trust’s values in the way in which they live and work, helping the ULHT to deliver “Outstanding Care Together”.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services in Lincolnshire. The successful candidates must have senior level experience in one of the following areas:

  • NED Post 1: Recent, relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation with the capacity to Chair the Audit Committee, preferably with a financial qualification
  • NED Post 2: Clinical and patient safety expertise gained from medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care experience at a senior level in an academic, research, regulatory or clinically focused role
  • Associate NED post: Senior level experience gained in the public, voluntary, community or charity sectors with experience of either workforce development, strategic planning, finance, risk, performance management or service development

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
  • support the development of 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.

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.
