Non Executive Director
University College London NHS Foundation Trust
Appointment of a Non-Executive Director
UCLH is proud to be one of the top performing hospitals in the country with a reputation for delivering top-quality patient care to our local communities and beyond. We are committed to providing excellent education and delivering leading edge of research.
Non-Executive Directors make an important contribution to the effective running of UCLH. Their role is to help develop strategy, scrutinise performance and ensure integrity of clinical, financial and other information presented to them. They offer challenge and support, and strengthen engagement with the local community, patients and stakeholders.
Our aim is to recruit a talented individual who will add value to our strong team. The successful candidate will have a broad understanding of the diversity of our local healthcare economy (North Central London), including the needs of patients and of the wider community which we serve. They will demonstrate a commitment to improving the patient experience and the quality of the care we deliver.
Evidence of showing leadership and inspiration, resilience in the face of challenge and the ability to inspire confidence and enthusiasm are also essential. To qualify you must also be resident in one of the London Boroughs.
UCLH places considerable emphasis on diversity at Board level, and particularly encourages applications from appropriately qualified candidates from all sections of the community, and from people with diverse experience and backgrounds.
The candidate will be expected to devote up to 2-3 days per month plus some discretionary time for preparation and reading to the role. Remuneration is currently £13,140 per year plus travel and subsistence expenses.

The closing date for applications is 7th March 2016.
How to Apply
We want to make this process as straightforward as possible. To this end, we ask that you provide the following documents:
- A personal statement/covering letter of no more than two sides of A4 in length which addresses how your skills and experience match the person specification and your motivation for applying for the role.
- An up to date CV, that brings out the relevance of your experience.
- A completed Fit and Proper Persons self-certification form (see below).
- A completed Diversity Monitoring Form . All monitoring data will be treated in the strictest confidence and will not affect your application in any way. Please send this separately to EO@Green-park.co.uk
- The names and contact details of three referees. We will not contact your referees before interview.
All documentation (apart from the Diversity Monitoring form) should be emailed to UCLH@green-park.co.uk by no later than noon on 7th March 2016
If you want to know more about the role or selection process, please contact Joanna Moriarty on the above email address, or on 0203 145 3433.
All applications will be acknowledged.
The Diversity Form is requested for monitoring purposes only and will not be seen by the recruitment panel prior to interview. Given this, applicants are also requested to include in their application (which will therefore be seen by the panel) any details which they wish to disclose of their gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion and ethnic and social background, insofar as this may be relevant to their role as a trustee and to include details of any experience they have of working with or advising people who may have experienced discrimination.
Fit and Proper Persons Test
UCLH has an obligation to ensure that an individual is a fit and proper person to be a Director. We will undertake a review on appointment to determine that a new appointee is:
- Of good character
- Has the necessary qualifications, skills and experience for their board role
- After reasonable adjustments, is able to perform the role for which they are employed
- Has not been "responsible for, been privy to, contributed to or facilitated any serious misconduct or mismanagement (whether unlawful of not) in the course of carrying on a regulated activity, or providing a service elsewhere which, if provided in England, would be a regulated activity."
We ask you to complete a self-certification form as part of the process, and we will carry out research to establish your credentials. You may also be asked to provide evidence of your qualifications.
