Non-Executive Director - The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust
The Dudley Group is looking for a talented and ambitious Non-executive Director. The position requires an outstanding individual who can work as part of a unitary board to hold the Board to account for the setting and delivery of its stated ambition within the applicable national frameworks.
The NHS has experienced a great number of challenges in recent years, with a marked increase in demand on services and challenging financial circumstances. Against this backdrop, the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust has responded well, continuing to offer innovative services and deliver effective care for patients. This is a place where people matter and our staff are committed to our aim of ensuring that everyone receives high quality, safe and appropriate care.
Seen by many as one of the leading Trusts in the country, we are a key player in the local health and social care economy, working closely with a number of partner organisations to develop services for patients. We are also playing a role in the arrangements for multi-speciality community provision of services, maintaining a strong vision to enable patients with long-term conditions to manage their care at home rather than in hospital.
We are an exceptional Trust and we are confident we deserve an exceptional Non-executive Director to help us achieve our ambitions. We want an achiever whose ambitions meet the same expectations as our staff and patients. Ideally you should live within Dudley or its surrounding area or have a strong association with Dudley through work, family or other connections. We are looking for someone who understands acute hospital provision, has experience at senior/board level and who will be able to demonstrate the qualities necessary to help take the Trust forward and promote the interests of our service users. Specifically, we are looking for candidates who have a clinical background and can apply their knowledge and networks at a non-executive level to enhance our Board and Quality Committee.
As an inclusive employer we welcome applicants from all backgrounds to ensure that our Board continues to reflect the diversity of our communities and encourages diversity of thought. If you have the vision and commitment to keep the Trust at the forefront of developments in the NHS and the expertise needed to make a real contribution, we want to hear from you.
Please get in touch with our recruitment partners, Jenny Adrian and Rhiannon Smith at Hunter Healthcare on 020 7935 4570 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date for applications is 2 August 2019.
