Non-executive Director - Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust

BHRUH provides acute hospital care to the populations of Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge in outer east London, and in west Essex.


Essential criteria

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. 

You will have experience of chairing committees and an awareness of the health and care sectors, enabling you to constructively challenge and work collaboratively throughout the organisation to help the Trust develop and deliver its strategic plans.

Experience of operating at Board level, managing complex change and transformation is required and it would be helpful if you already have been a NED, Trustee or Governor.  

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 London and the west Essex area or the neighbouring areas. 

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
