Non-executive Director, North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

We are recruiting a Non-executive Director for North Staffordshire Combined 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

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

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.

You should have strong connections with South Cheshire or North Staffordshire or ideally live within 50 miles of the headquarters of the Trust.

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.
