Non-Executive Director - Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust
Date Posted: 28/02/2019
Closing Date: 29/03/2019
We are recruiting a Non-executive Director for Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS 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.
You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior or Board level commercial experience, and will be someone who is passionate about representing the needs of the diverse communities the trust serves. Furthermore, you will have the ability work with others to achieve sustained improvements.
The successful candidate will have experience of delivering change through others:
- through their own lived experiences;
- running their own business;
- in a large corporate environment; or
- contributing to the governance of a sizeable organisation.
Experience of IT or procurement would be an added advantage, but not essential.
You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:
- work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board
- bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
- hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
- shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust
All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role. These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Model.
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 they serve.
We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and 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.
