The opportunity

We are recruiting a Non-executive Director (NED) for North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust (NSCHT). This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

A key priority for the Trust has been to form strong partnerships across health, social care and the voluntary sector to enable the integration of physical and mental health. The STP Strategy for integration outlines the development of three Alliances across Staffordshire as being key enablers.

The Trust has played an important role in establishing the successful multi – agency Northern Alliance. The vision is to develop integrated resources and services across 10 localities. To support this, the Trust has undergone a significant organisational restructure and transformation.

The trust has just received their published report for their latest CQC well-led inspection. The trust has been rated Outstanding which makes it only 1 of 2 specialist mental health NHS trusts to receive this rating nationally.

Essential criteria

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have recent, relevant, senior level finance experience gained in a large, complex organisation with the capacity to Chair the Audit Committee. The successful candidate will also have a financial qualification.

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.

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 .

Salary: Competitive
Posted: 12 Sep 2019

Ref: 73417
Job Function: Chair
Industry: Education
Position Type: Permanent

Chair of the Board of Governors

De Montfort University (DMU) is an ambitious, globally-minded institution with a relentless focus on delivering excellent teaching and learning, high-quality research and a sector-leading student experience. A culturally rich university with a strong commitment to the public good, it strives to maintain a stimulating and inclusive environment, where staff and students are able to thrive. Awarded ‘Gold’ in the Teaching Excellence Framework, the university is a vibrant, multi-cultural hub of learning, creativity and innovation that was named the first ever ‘University of the Year for Social Inclusion’ in The Times and Sunday Times’ Good University Guide 2019.

DMU is seeking to recruit a new Chair of the Board of Governors as the university seeks to build further on its strong position within the sector. The board plays a crucial role in the development of the university’s vision and strategic direction; providing guidance and constructive challenge to the Vice-Chancellor and university’s Executive Board. Additionally, the Chair will play a key role in promoting the university to relevant and potential stakeholders, both regionally and nationally.

The higher education sector is facing an unprecedented series of challenges; some of which are shared with all universities, such as the impact of Brexit and the outcomes of the Augar review. Whilst DMU is extremely well placed to respond, with a healthy financial position and robust home and international student recruitment performance, the appointment of an outstanding Chair has never been so important. The successful candidate will bring high levels of personal and professional integrity; highly developed intellectual acuity; strong commercial acumen, and well-developed personal networks. Proven experience of operating as a non-executive will be essential; and chairing experience of an organisation of comparable complexity highly desirable.

It is essential that individuals are committed to DMU’s values of diversity, inclusivity and a global approach, and are able to work collaboratively with a talented executive team for the benefit of all students and staff.
