The Trust delivers some of the country’s leading and innovative care in our specialist fields and has a well-regarded and extensive research and development portfolio nationally and internationally.

The changing environment in which the NHS operates means that we are utilising opportunities for strategic working with key partners across the health and social care economy, while at the same time identifying new business opportunities for the Trust. Re-establishing services following the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic also brings a number of challenges for the organisation, which the Board is working through. Central to this work is the ability to harness those new ways of working created by the pandemic for the benefit of patients This is therefore an exciting opportunity for a strategic thinker and strong team player to join us in exploring innovative solutions as well as providing additional constructive challenge as a non-executive member of the Board. Successful applicants should have the following experience: • Governance responsibility at Board or senior management level in a large and/or complex organisation • Demonstrable record of achievement in a senior position of responsibility • Experience in one or more of the following areas; quality improvement, regulatory compliance, finance/audit • Strong connection to the local community served by the Trust with a high level of commitment and empathy to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups

Remuneration will be £13,000pa plus travel and subsistence reimbursement in line with Trust policy, for an average time commitment of 3 to 4 days per month.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve. We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.

Our recruitment processes are conducted in accordance with the Code of Governance to ensure that they are made on merit after a fair and open process so that the best people, from the widest possible pool of candidates, are appointed.
