Department: Non-Executive Board
Closing date: 26 January 2020
Interview date: 14 February 2020

Sirona Care & Health are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and energetic Non-Executive Director. This is an exciting opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the communities served.

You will work closely with the other Board members to set the strategic context within which high quality, evidence based health and social care is delivered. They are looking for someone who can play a key role in corporate leadership, governance and stewardship of Sirona care & health, and can contribute effectively to the strategic development and planning of the wider Healthier Together system. Their strong culture, ethos and values have helped develop a strong reputation for delivering safe, efficient and effective services which service users would choose and recommend, but they also aspire to set the benchmark of excellence in integrated health and social care services for adults and children.

Sirona Care & Health have recently been awarded a 10 year contract for Adult Community Health Services in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) which is a really exciting opportunity for all working at Sirona.

This means from April 2020 they will have a turnover of more than £160m and 3,500 staff. They have ambitious plans working with colleagues across the system, in particular in Primary Care and the Voluntary Sector, along with individuals, carers and families to transform community services.

Sirona Care & Health are a not for profit, values driven organisation providing NHS and Local Authority funded community based health and social care to a very high standard. They have a commitment to add value to the local community and as a Social Enterprise they exist purely for this purpose.

Do you have senior leadership experience and the credibility to forge strategic alliances and build effective relationships at all levels internally and beyond the organisation?

They are particularly keen to hear from individuals in the Bristol or North Somerset area, and those with a strong commercial or education background and a strategic understanding of the digital agenda.

At Sirona Care & Health, they continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of their service users and staff. They would be particularly interested to hear from candidates from diverse backgrounds to continue to increase diversity within their Board.

They believe it is important for all the Board and senior managers to be visible and encourage the Non-Executives to visit their services, to meet staff and the people they care for. You would also be required to attend regular Board and committee meetings.

Please read the attached candidate information pack for more details about Sirona and this exciting opportunity.

If you would like a confidential and an informal discussion about the role, you are welcome to contact Janet Rowse, Chief Executive or Simon Knighton, Chair on 0300 124 5470.
