Job Details

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust is one of the most innovative mental health trusts in the country. With over 4,000 dedicated staff we provide comprehensive and specialist mental healthcare services from over 40 sites, to a culturally and socially diverse population of 1.3m across the West Midlands and beyond.

There has never been a more exciting time to join our Trust as Chair. This role provides the opportunity to lead our organisation as we recover from the pandemic and the major challenges this has presented and to make a real difference in the future. As Chair you will provide leadership to the Board of Directors, Council of Governors, our staff, and our system partners to uphold our newly revised values of being Compassionate, Committed and Inclusive.

In joining us you will guide and support the Trust and our healthcare system on the next phase of our development, showcasing the collaborative instincts required to work across an evolving NHS landscape and a future where care is delivered in a more integrated and collaborative way. The communities served by the Trust are amongst the most diverse in the country. It is critical our new Chair works with system partners to eradicate the unacceptable inequalities that COVID-19 has bought to the fore.

As our new Chair you will be highly motivated, energetic, innovative and a natural facilitator. You will be committed to ensuring that the culture of BSMHFT is a ‘just’, inclusive and compassionate one, in which everyone has equal opportunities to thrive and feel confident in speaking out without fear. You must demonstrate an unwavering commitment to diversity and inclusion and showcase how you will role model this at BSMHFT and across our system.

In this appointment process we are actively seeking candidates from a diverse range backgrounds. You will have the leadership skills required to take our Trust forward and your values, leadership style, and ability to inspire and harness the talents of others is more important than the sector you have gained your experience in.

If your values and ambition match ours and the opportunity to lead both our Trust and the wider health and care system attracts you, then we very much look forward to hearing from you.

Put simply, we help our clients to recruit the best possible people to lead, manage and direct their organisations. Since launching in 2005 we have become an award winning, market-leading consultancy focusing on both public and private sector Healthcare recruitment. 

Leadership skills have rarely been at such a premium - as organisations across both public and private sectors attempt to improve services and standards at a time of widespread change and unprecedented financial constraints.

Like other leading executive recruiters, Finegreen has developed a pool of talent built up over many years, along with established networks, to ensure that right-match candidates get to hear about relevant positions - sound pegs for rounds holes.

Where Finegreen differs from many others, is in its willingness to spend quality time with clients - to gain an in-depth knowledge of roles being filled and their importance to an organisation; and that goes for everyone from Chief Executive Neil Fineberg, Chairman and former NHS Confederation chief, Steve Barnett, and ex NHS Chief Executive John Rostill to other members of the Finegreen executive team.

During just 10 years in the Healthcare market, Finegreen has developed into a Virgin Fast Track top 100 company - and was voted Recruiter of the Year 2013 & 2014 at the Health Investor Awards, Top small to medium sized business 2013 & 2014 at the Best Business Awards, and featured in Recruiter’s Top 10 Public Sector Recruitment providers.
