There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital 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.

Essential criteria

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have recent, relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation with the capacity to chair the Audit Committee. A financial qualification is desirable but not essential.

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 the Southport, Formby and West Lancashire areas.

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

We particularly welcome applications from those who have a lived experience of our services, 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.
