We are recruiting a Non-executive Director for George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust. You will be a team player with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, a real affinity with community and community services, and the ability to bring challenge and support to the board and its committees.

Ref: M1784

Essential criteria

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior level organisational development expertise with experience of managing service transformation and delivering improvements.

  • 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.

Applicants should live within a 35-mile radius or have strong connections with the Trust.

  • On average this role will require the equivalent to 2 to 3 days a month.
  • The remuneration payable for this role is £6,157 pa.

Given the significant public profile and responsibility members of NHS Boards hold, it is vital that those appointed inspire confidence of the public, patients and NHS staff at all times. NHS Improvement makes a number of specific background checks to ensure that those we appoint are “fit and proper” people to hold these important roles. More information can be found on our website. 

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.
