Non-executive Director & Associate Non-executive Director, The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust

There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director and an Associate Non-executive Director at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

M1886

The Trust is planning ahead for two natural rotations within its Board, and they seek to appoint two strong team players with excellent interpersonal skills, along with the ability to bring challenge and support to the board and its committees. 

One of the successful candidates will chair the Trust’s Audit Committee and the second post (an Associate Non-executive Director post) will be a member of the Trust’s Performance and Finance Committee and Strategy Committee.  

The Associate Non-executive director role is used successfully in the NHS to support Board succession strategy and achieving a balance of Board level skills. Associate Non-executive directors cannot participate in any formal vote at Board.

The successful candidate for the Associate role will be appointed by the Trust but may also be considered for appointment as a Non-executive director of the Board in future, should a vacancy arise and they have the appropriate skills.

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.  You will have recent, relevant senior or board level experience gained in a complex organisation in one or more of the following:
