Vacancy Description

Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides hospital services to the communities of Warrington, Runcorn, Widnes and surrounding areas, supporting a diverse population of 330,000. It has approximately 4,100 staff and an annual turnover of c.£234m.

The Trust is working towards high quality standards of healthcare across the local population. The Trust works in close partnership with other healthcare providers to improve health and care for people living in the area. Despite the challenges faced, the improvements and strategies implemented have placed the trust in an exciting position to continue striving towards their vision and mission to be rated as an Outstanding trust and continue to provide the best possible care to their patients and staff.

This is a unique chance for individuals to join their board as a Non-Executive Director and have an impact in making a difference and improving the health and lives of people in the area.

We want to appoint someone with an inquisitive, analytical and detail focused nature, with the ability to chair a board committee, to challenge and support the board, and can demonstrate the highest standards of integrity and governance. This person is being appointed to progress towards becoming the Chair of Audit Committee, the central oversight and scrutiny committee for the Board.

Person Specification

Experience of working within the NHS is not essential. A collaborative, inquisitive, supportive, open and honest approach is more important. It will be your duty to ensure effective governance, consistent with the Nolan principles and NHS values, alongside assisting in developing a long-term vision and strategy for the Trust with the executive directors and Council of Governors.

We value and promote diversity and appreciate the best leadership teams reflect the communities they serve. We strongly encourage applications from people across groups that are underrepresented. Most importantly, we recognise that skills and experience can be lived as well as learnt. The Trust is accredited as a Disability Confident employer and we will ensure that people with disabilities are afforded equal opportunity to enter employment and progress if and where possible.
