Associate Non-Executive Directors

Working up to 5 days per month (flexibly)

£15,543 per annum upon substantive appointment

These are challenging times for the NHS nationally, and locally too.

Our trust is looking to manage the succession of the Non-Executive Directors of the board, and to strengthen the capability of the board still further. Specifically, we seek to appoint 2 Associate NEDs: one of whom will have senior clinical leadership experience and the other will have a strong background in complex, transformational or digital change. Our NEDs play a critical role in the effective governance of the trust, providing independence and challenge, as well as support and a total commitment to the enduring values of NHS: the role of NEDs has never been more important.

Successful applicants are likely to be naturally strategic in their thinking, familiar with complex organizations, energized by change, driven by a desire to provide the very best standards of care to patients and service users, and robust and resilient in their approach to working life.

We are always interested in meeting applicants from diverse backgrounds who can add different perspectives to our debate at board.

Associate NEDs will be crucial to the seamless succession of our NEDs at Board.

To apply you must be eligible for membership of the Trust

You can contact the chair of the trust for an informal conversation if these opportunities appeal to you, or you can visit the trust on Thursday 11th January between 4-6pm when you can meet NED colleagues, governors and executives informally to discuss the role of a NED in the NHS.

Deadline for receipt of applications: Thursday 18th January 2018
