The opportunity

Ref: M2038

There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director at Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the Trust.

The successful candidate will in due course chair a Board Committee and sit on other Board Committees as agreed.

The person specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. Applicants should have senior level experience gained in a large, complex private sector organisation.

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.

Applicants should live in or have strong connections with Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
