There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director (NED) at Solent 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.
You will need to be a values-driven leader and have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will also have:
- Recent, relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation with the capacity to Chair the Audit Committee, preferably, with a financial qualification
- Experience of providing high levels of scrutiny, strong governance, risk management and strategic leadership would be advantageous.
Solent NHS Trust is committed to building a diverse Board and would welcome perspectives from those who will complement their existing Board members. Whilst some knowledge of the health and care sectors may be useful, the Trust is keen to hear from applicants from all sectors who offer relevant audit and risk experience at board level in complex environments.
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.
Applicants should live in or have strong connections with Southampton, Portsmouth or wider Hampshire
