Vacancy Description

Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals (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.

We are now looking for an exceptional Non-Executive Director to join the WWL team as a member of our unitary Board of Directors.

Person Specification

You will be a people-centered 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 committee of the 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.

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.
