There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director at Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing Trust which has achieved significant progress in the delivery of our strategic objectives, we are proud of the commitment of our staff to ensuring a strong and sustainable future for this organisation which is highly valued by our local communities.

We have a leadership team in place that is driving financial stability, innovation, efficiencies and improvements right across the service and the Board is looking for an experienced professional to join them in a Non-Executive Director capacity.

The strategy for sustainability and growth is being delivered by talented, enthusiastic clinical business units who are committed to ensuring patients get the best possible care, every time.

There has never been a better time to join Barnsley Hospital. It is moving at pace and a ‘we can do this’ attitude is evident right through the organisation, where staff are engaged for change and committed to being part of the journey to recovery, sustainability and growth.

In order to deliver the best care to our patients we know we need the best leaders to help us on our journey and to continue to be the best for our patients. As a Foundation Trust we enjoy greater flexibility, but this places greater reliance on the leadership and governance of our Board.

Successful candidates will possess exceptional leadership skills and demonstrate real motivation for making a difference.

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 that they serve.

We welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in 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.
