North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust – Non-Executive Directors

Non-Executive Directors - North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust


This is a very exciting time for North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, with the retaining of a ‘Good’ rating following the Trust’s Care Quality Commission inspection in 2018, and the development of a number of new service offerings. The Trust operates across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Darlington and Teesside. We provide an Unscheduled Care service to respond to 999 calls (the emergency element of our services), and a Scheduled Care service which provides pre-planned non-emergency transport for patients in the region (our patient transport service). We also operate the NHS 111 and Integrated Urgent Care services for the region. These services enables us to seamlessly ensure that patients receive the most appropriate response for their condition. Even in the most challenging situations we strive to perform to the highest professional standards in a spirit of collaboration and teamwork. Caring for and treating more patients closer to home is at the heart of our plans, and our committed, compassionate and caring staff are critical to our success.

We are now looking to appoint two Non-Executive Directors to our Board to provide support, oversight, governance and leadership in the pursuit of our strategy. As a new Non-Executive Director, you will be joining a strong and high-performing Board comprised of individuals with a wide range of professional backgrounds and lived experience. Utilising your experience from your chosen profession, whether private, public or voluntary sector, you will bring support, challenge and independent judgement to a complex, fast-paced, regulated environment.

The successful candidate will have proven senior leadership skills and a strong commitment to the values of the NHS. Previous Non-Executive Director experience would be advantageous but is not essential – rather, the ability to challenge constructively through solid knowledge and understanding is a critical component of the role. For one of the two roles, leadership experience of a large, dispersed workforce will be critical, and for the other, either recent senior financial experience or significant financial literacy because of the management of large budgets will be important. The ability to hold others to account and delivering strategy will be important requirements for both roles.

We are committed to and actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals from all areas of the community who meet the specific criteria are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage/civil partnerships. We want our Board of Directors to reflect the diversity of the population we serve and we welcome all applications, especially from under-represented groups, including people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

The appointment is for an initial term of 3 years with a time commitment of on average 3 days per month. At the end of their term Non-Executive Directors are eligible a second term of 3 years.

You must be a resident of the North East to be eligible.

Performing Right Society Limited (PRS) – Independent Non-Executive Director

Independent Non-Executive Director - Performing Right Society Limited (PRS)

Recruiter: Performing Right Society Limited (PRS)
Location: London
Salary: £42k • c. 20-24 days per annum
Posted: 02 Jul 2021
Closes: 30 Jul 2021
Job Function: Non Executive Director
Industry: Creative, Legal

The Performing Right Society Limited (PRS) is a leading UK collective rights management organisation (CMO) whose members comprise around 155,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers and their successors. We license our members’ music for use by businesses, online, in broadcasts and film, for live performance and in recorded products, and collect royalties on their behalf.

Through our wholly-owned operating company, PRS for Music (PRSfM), as well as partnerships with ICE, PPL and MCPS, we oversee one of the most successful repertoires in the world. The scale of our operations is astonishing. Last year, we processed more transactions (over 22trn) than there are global credit card purchases or Google searches; and though the pandemic has seriously affected our industry, we nevertheless managed to increase our distribution during 2020.

We are now inviting applications to become an Independent Non-executive Director (iNED), sitting on both our Council and our Board. One of four iNEDs, you will bring an invaluable combination of professional experience (ideally in a field in which you have gained a nuanced understanding of intellectual property and / or copyright), together with sound non-executive experience and an independent cast of mind. An understanding of how strategic partnerships can amplify our impact will be an asset, as will a strategic understanding of the continuing move to digital across the spectrum.

Our iNEDs are full, active participants in the strategic governance and leadership of PRS, and yours will be a strong, influential voice as we debate fundamental issues. Just as important, however, will be your part in forging strong collegiate bonds across the extended governance group: building consensus, supporting a thriving culture of accountability, and ensuring informed decision-making. The role is a complex one, and you will need to be certain that you have the capacity to bring your full value to the organisation; but for the right candidate, its very complexity will form part of its attraction.

A key objective of our new governance arrangements is to improve diversity on the Board, and a focus on greater diversity in all aspects – including( but not limited to) ethnicity, socio-economic background, gender, or cognitive style – is a priority of this recruitment process. We warmly encourage interest from candidates whose insights and perspectives wouldn’t otherwise have been present around the table.

If you would like to find out more, please visit www.prs-ned.co.uk in the first instance. To arrange an informal confidential discussion, please contact Shani Newbold or Philip Nelson on +44 20 7947 4960 or email
