The opportunity for two new Non-executive Directors to join Kent Community NHS Foundation Trust is a highly attractive one. These are exceptional opportunities to apply your talent and expertise to make a positive difference to the large and dispersed population served by the Trust.
As one of the largest and best performing community health providers in the NHS, Kent Community NHS Foundation Trust serves approximately 2 million people across Kent, East Sussex and London. The opportunity for two new Non-Executive Directors to join the Board is a highly attractive one. We are at a very exciting stage in our development and are looking for high calibre candidates who can make a real impact to our organisation and reflect our We CARE Values: Compassionate, Aspirational, Responsive, and Excellent, alongside a genuine commitment to patients, the promotion of excellent health care services, and partnership working.
Vacancy 1 – Chair of the Finance, Business, and Investment Committee:
You will bring a demonstrable track record of success within financial, accountancy or banking settings, and an understanding of how to work effectively in large complex organisations. A recognised financial qualification in accountancy or banking is essential. The successful candidate will Chair the Board’s Finance Committee that guides our long term investment and financial strategy.
Vacancy 2 – General Non-Executive Director:
For this second post we are seeking candidates from a range of professional backgrounds and experience, either from complex public, private or voluntary sector settings who can offer the Board the ability to contribute to our ongoing strategic and operational development. Regardless of where your experience has been gained, you will have the ability to bring independence, external perspective, judgement and challenge to our Board, complementing the blend of skills that exists across the Executive and Non-Executive group.
We value and promote diversity and are particularly keen to attract candidates who might bring diverse perspectives and inclusive characteristics. We welcome expressions of interest from the widest possible range of backgrounds particularly those who are underrepresented at Board level in the NHS.
These are exceptional opportunities to apply your talent and expertise to make a positive difference to the large and dispersed population served by the Trust. If you feel you have the skills to make a difference, and your values and ambitions match ours then our retained advisors Harvey Nash would love to hear from you.
