The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust
The Dudley Group are looking to recruit an experienced and driven Board Secretary / governance professional and competent leader keen to help them further develop, operate, embed and continuously improve corporate governance arrangements supporting the Trust on its Journey to Outstanding.
As one of the Executive Team, you will lead the Board Secretary Team ensuring the Trust benefits from evidence-based, best practice progressive approaches to corporate governance. You will have the opportunity to influence and shape corporate governance across the Trust. As such, you will need to be a dynamic leader with extensive experience of corporate governance and supporting both a Board and Council of Governors or similar corporate structures.
This is an exciting time to join the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust and the Black Country and West Birmingham Integrated Care System. The Dudley Group is an active partner in the ICS, embracing opportunities to work with partners in the Dudley system and across the Black Country to deliver excellent care, improve health outcomes and address the inequalities faced by their communities. This is reflected in their new strategy and will drive forward how they operate as an organisation over the coming years.
They are seeking an exceptional candidate to help them achieve their vision of ‘excellent care, improved health for all’ for the Trust. You will have a strong track record in under taking the board secretariat function, corporate governance gained in a large acute NHS Trust or other large public sector organisation. Your experience will cover all aspects of board secretary, corporate governance, including horizon scanning; governance and compliance; membership and council of governors; Trust Secretariat; advisory and support to Chair and Chief Executive. You will also be responsible for FOI, IG both led by an experienced IG manager and the Trust’s clinical negligence claims process again led by an experienced manager.
You will enjoy working in a complex, very fast-paced environment and cope well with pressure, ambiguity, frustrations and politics a corporate role involves. You will be as driven and ambitious as the leadership team of the Trust are, and will be prepared to go the extra mile on a daily basis.
They will expect a lot of you and will offer a lot in return. You will benefit from support and working in close collaboration with the rest of their committed team. You will get exposure to many areas of the Trust and local health economy, including engaging in projects and work to support the development of the Integrated Care System (ICS). The Trust offers an excellent contributory pension scheme and 33 days annual leave on appointment.
