The opportunity

There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director at Barts Health 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, centred in East London. The successful candidate will be a member of the Unitary Board and also sit on the Finance and Investment Committee, the Audit and Risk Committee and the Nominations and Remuneration Committee.

Essential criteria

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients, the promotion of excellent health care services, and the NHS. You will have senior level Board or equivalent experience gained within in a large and complex service oriented multi site organisation. A financial qualification would be helpful but is not essential. Demonstrating a successful track record in commercial leadership and being conversant in risk management practice are both highly desirable.

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.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve.

We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.

Our recruitment processes are conducted in accordance with the Code of Governance to ensure that they are made on merit after a fair and open process so that the best people, from the widest possible pool of candidates, are appointed
