Vacancy Description

WWL is a successful Foundation Trust in the North West of England which serves a diverse population and is rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission across all core domains. We provide a range of acute medical, surgical, women’s, children’s and community services to 326,000 people across the Wigan Borough and world-renowned orthopaedic services on a national and international scale from our Wrightington Hospital site.

We have a strong sense of place and are proud to have built effective, collegiate relationships with our partners across the Healthier Wigan Partnership to provide the best possible healthcare for our community. We are also committed to education and research and our goal is to become a university teaching hospital of the future. We recognise the value of our people and we are always looking at innovative ways of working to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to achieve their purpose.

Person Specification

We are now looking for an exceptional Non-Executive Director to join the WWL team as a member of our unitary Board of Directors. You will be a people-centred individual with proven strategic vision, be financially qualified and have recent experience of working at a senior level in a financial role. It is expected that you will be able and willing to chair the Finance and Performance committee which is a high-profile sub-committee of the Trust Board. Although not essential, it would also be desirable if you could demonstrate experience of developing or contributing to the development of a digital strategy.

Additional Information

Previous experience as a non-executive director is welcomed but we are very much looking for the right person to join our team as we pursue our aim to be outstanding in everything we do. We welcome expressions of interest from the widest possible range of backgrounds, particularly those who are under- represented at Board level in the NHS.
