Apply to join our Trust as an Associate Non-Executive Director

Published: 28/05/2015

We are currently seeking a new Associate Non - Executive Director to join our Board following the retirement of one of our longest service Non-Executive Directors (NED), and the promotion of our existing Associate Non-Executive director into a full NED role. We are looking for someone with a strong financial background to join our Trust Board, initially in a non-voting position, but with a view to moving into a full NED role in the autumn of 2016 when another of our NEDs is due to retire.

The appointee will need to have a formal financial qualification and the experience and expertise to take on the role of the Chair of the Audit Committee at that time.

We are seeking an individual who will bring a strong focus on financial and corporate governance and strategic vision. Working with a complex and dynamic agenda, you will be a good communicator who can challenge effectively as part of an open, transparent and committed unitary Board and who has the personal skills to work effectively with our Council of Governors, whose role it is to hold the Board to account through the Non-Executive Directors. We look forward to hearing from individuals who may be looking to move into their first NHS Board role as well as those who may be more experienced, but who may be looking to diversify into Mental Health services.

What is most important is that you share our values, and are committed to working with us to continuously improve health and wellbeing services for people with mental health conditions and to reducing stigma.
