Non-Executive Director - Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust

Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust are seeking to appoint a non-executive director to their Board of Directors who will help them to better reflect the diverse experiences of staff, patients and stakeholders.

These are exciting times at Sheffield Children’s.

We are a Trust with a strong local, regional and national identity that invests in its infrastructure and quality of care for patients. Indeed, we have just invested almost £50m in a new Outpatients facility and wards.

In 2018, we were the number one trust in the country for achieving the four-hour accident and emergency standard and are a trust that consistently surpasses other national targets. In our most recent inspection of our quality and leadership we were rated ‘Good’ by the CQC (July 2019).

We are seeking to appoint a non-executive director to our Board of Directors who will help us to better reflect the diverse experiences of our staff, patients and stakeholders. We particularly would welcome applications from members of our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities who are currently under-represented on our Board of Directors.

The successful candidate will have a significant track record of leadership, strategic focus and personal achievement in a complex environment. As a non-executive director you will need the ability to influence the strategic direction of the organisation and have a passion for developing the quality of service provided by the Trust. You will also need to act as an ambassador and advocate for the Trust.

The time commitment is three days each month.

The closing date for applications is 11th October. Initial interviews will take place 2nd November and final interviews will take place 9th November. Appointment will be confirmed 17th November for a 1st December start date. Interviews are likely to be conducted virtually.

To apply, please submit a CV and a structured letter of application of no more than two sides that identifies how you meet the requirements of the person specification (see penultimate page of the candidate guide) to
