We are looking for two new board members. These posts may be of interest to people from a wide range of backgrounds including those who do not have previous board experience, but who have the potential to contribute, who wish to develop their skills in this area and are willing to learn.

Furthermore it is important that all applicants have the ability to:

  • Communicate effectively with a diverse range of stakeholders.
  • Persuade others within a board environment.
  • Work effectively as part of a team
  • Understand the role of governance and regulation in the charity sector.

Time Commitment: The formal time commitment is up to 1.5 days per month which includes attending approximately 4 board meetings per annum.

Location: Meetings are held in Dundee and other locations as appropriate.

Remuneration: £200 per day. Travel, subsistence, and reasonable dependent carer allowance incurred as a result of carrying out the duties associated with this appointment will be reimbursed. This is non-pensionable.

Independent Chair - Herefordshire and Worcestershire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership

The Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) Plan for Herefordshire and Worcestershire was published in draft in November 2016 and following a period of engagement a final version was published on the 5th of July 2017.

Job Reference: 106-SWO-145
Salary: £15000 pa pro rata

The STP Plan for Herefordshire and Worcestershire was published in draft in November 2016 and following a period of engagement a final version was published on the 5th of July 2017.

We have developed a programme of work that underpins the STP Strategy. Delivery is underway, within a clear governance framework. In order to deliver our plan strong, focused and experienced leadership is required and so, building on the able and effective leadership of our current chair, (who is a nonexecutive director of one of our constituent organisations), we are now seeking to recruit a new Independent Chair that does not currently hold a specific non exec or formal role in an existing local public sector organisation.

The chair’s main role is to provide clear leadership to the development and delivery of the STP, and through executive officers, to hold the respective partner organisations to account in their commitment to do so. A strong personal commitment to the NHS and wider public service is essential, as are the highest standards of integrity and probity. An ability to communicate with a wide range of organisations and individuals is vital.

Interviews will be held on Monday the 30th October.

The post is fixed term to March 2019 and applicants are invited to contact Jo-Anne Alner, STP Programme Director on 07900 715 138 for further information about the role and the STP Plan for Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
