Non-Executive Director - London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust

We are recruiting a non-executive director for London North West University Healthcare 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

The successful candidate will be expected to take on the role of Chair of the Audit Committee and will be a member of at least one other Board committee as well as a full voting member of the Trust Board of Directors.

We are looking for an individual with recent and relevant senior finance experience with a financial qualification. You will also ideally have previous NHS or Board level experience and/or experience of being a member of an Audit Committee although this is not essential.

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. Candidates should also have recent and relevant senior finance experience with relevant qualification/s.

Board level experience in one or more of the following would be an advantage:

  • property development or management, strategy development and implementation, charitable endeavours, organisational development
  • Previous NHS experience
  • Audit Committee experience

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.
