Non- Executive Director, Airedale NHS Foundation Trust

We are seeking an outstanding and highly talented Non-Executive Director to join the Board in a radically changing and evolving NHS landscape, within a financially challenged national economy.

Airedale NHS Foundation Trust is a highly successful and award winning acute hospital and community services trust with a workforce of around 2,500 and 400 volunteers serving a population of over 200,000 people across West and North Yorkshire and East Lancashire. The Trust has a turnover of over £160million, is regulated by NHS Improvement and the CQC and is led by a proven Board of Directors.

We are seeking a Non-Executive Director to join the Board in a radically changing and evolving NHS landscape, within a financially challenged national economy. The Trust’s Right Care Vision is the focus for all our Board, working with our partners and stakeholders to ensure patient experience and population health is placed at the heart of every decision.

You will thrive in an innovative environment with the opportunity to shape the future of healthcare services for our population ensuring we put patients first and deliver the right care every time. We are therefore keen to hear from individuals who have strong links to the diverse communities that we serve and can contribute to shaping our organisation’s strategic direction, bringing a depth of understanding of their different and changing healthcare needs.

We are interested in candidates with a strong financial background as they will Chair our Audit Committee; and substantial experience in the application of good corporate governance and risk management in either the public, private or third sector. Experience of large-scale management change would be an advantage.

We are also seeking candidates with the knowledge and career experience that equips them to make a highly informed contribution to Board debate about healthcare strategy and delivery.

We would welcome applications from people who live within easy reach of the main hospital site and who ideally have local knowledge and networks in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale, Craven and East Lancashire region, although this is not essential.

Applicants for the vacancy to which this brief relates should meet the eligibility criteria to be a director. A copy of the self-declaration that the successful candidate will be required to sign is available on request.

The expectation is that the Non-Executive Director will spend an average of 5 days per month on Trust business or more if business dictates.
