Appointment of Non-Executive Directors

South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) is a highly prestigious mental health organisation, and has an important international reputation. As part of its succession planning SLaM wants to appoint Non-Executive Directors in the following areas, to enable the Board to meet the new challenges facing the Trust over the coming years:

  • Chair Designate of the Audit Committee. This requires Board level financial leadership (with a current accountancy qualification) gained within large, complex organisations of comparable scale
  • Chair Designate of the Quality Committee. This requires a passion for quality improvement developed in a leadership role in health or in another sector where quality is paramount.
  • Service user and stakeholder champion, with experience preferably in areas linked to mental health services. For this post preference will be given to those who live in the area or those who demonstrate experience of participation in the community that we serve.

Non-Executive Directors make an important contribution to the effective running of SLaM. Their role is to help develop strategy and hold the Trust to account, scrutinising performance and the integrity of clinical, financial and other information presented to them. They offer challenge and support, and strengthen engagement with the local community, patients and stakeholders. Evidence of showing leadership and inspiration, resilience in the face of challenge and the ability to inspire confidence and enthusiasm are essential.

SLaM places considerable emphasis on diversity at Board level, and particularly encourages applications from appropriately qualified candidates from all sections of the community, and from people with diverse experience and backgrounds.

Remuneration is currently £13,661 per year (£16,813 for the Chair of Audit) plus travel and subsistence expenses.

The closing date for applications is Monday, 22nd February 2016.
