Vacancy Description

University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust is seeking an Associate Non-executive Director to join their Board.

At the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) we are ambitious for improvement.  We want all our patients, staff, and partners to reach their potential, and we’re extremely proud of our hospitals (Royal Stoke University Hospital and County Hospital at Stafford) and our people. With over 11,000 dedicated staff and a turnover c£840m we are one of the country’s largest and most modern University Trusts. We provide a wide range of acute and specialist healthcare to our local populations in Staffordshire, South Cheshire and Shropshire as well as being a Major Trauma Centre for a wider population of 3 million people.

We have achieved significant improvements in the quality and efficiency of our services and are focused on innovation to deliver an ambitious programme of work aligned with our ‘Vision2025’ to be delivering exceptional care with exceptional people whilst demonstrating our values of Together, Compassion, Safe and Improving.  We cannot do this alone and work as a key partner within the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Integrated Care System to focus on closer working between health and social care, deliver care closer to home and create a sustainable model for the future so that our population can live healthy fulfilled lives.

Person Specification

Our new Associate Non-executive Director will join an engaged and inspiring Board focused on putting patients, their families and our people at the heart of all our strategic decisions. We are seeking an inspirational and inclusive leader who has operated at, or near Board level, who can bring a strong understanding of good governance, a patient focus and positive energy to challenge and support our Board and help us to continue our journey of improvement.

We are keen to hear from leaders with transferable experience from either the private, public or third sector who have a passion for the NHS and the important part it plays in the wellbeing of our communities.  We are interested in hearing from individuals who are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and who bring experience of leading cultural change in person-centred environments.  From a succession planning perspective individuals with a professional background in finance and an accountancy qualification would be of particularly relevant interest however this is not essential.

We recognise the importance of diversity throughout our organisation and at our Board to provide a fresh and different perspective to our decision making and we particularly encourage applications from people from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.  This is a great opportunity to influence transformation across our organisation and system, to proudly improve services for our communities.
