Associate Non-executive Director - Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust

There is a vacancy for an Associate Non-executive Director at Epsom and St Helier University Hospital 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.


Essential criteria

Candidates will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and to the promotion of excellent health care services.

The ideal candidate will have significant primary care experience (such as that gained as a practising GP) and the skills to chair a Board committee including internal and external stakeholders.  To avoid a conflict of interest, the successful candidate will NOT be able to hold a directorship or equivalent in one of the trust’s host CCGs or partner GP federations.

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.
