University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust has a vacancy for a non-executive director and is looking to complement and enhance the skills on its Board of Directors. 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 successful candidate will take up this important post in September 2018.

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 finance experience with an accountancy qualification.  A background in quality improvement and innovation at a strategic level, together with audit committee experience in either the public or private sectors would be desirable.

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
