Essential criteria

The ideal candidate will have a demonstrable focus on both staff and service users, and a clear commitment to the delivery of outstanding services. S/he will also have a strong background in successful organisation development and sustainable cultural transformation gained at a senior level within large and complex organisations. 

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  •  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.
