Non-Executive Directors - Bradford Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Recruiter: Harvey Nash Healthcare
Location: Bradford, West Yorkshire (GB)
Posted: 24 Aug 2017
Closes: 07 Sep 2017
Contract Type: Non-executive director
Bradford Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a major provider of hospital services to the 500,000 people across Bradford and specialist services to a population of 1.1 million in Bradford and the surrounding areas. We are a progressive and ambitious organisation at the forefront of research, education and development in healthcare and our work introduces better standards of care for people across the UK.
Our mission is to provide safe healthcare, of the highest quality, at all times, and we aim to continue to develop our services in order to deliver the best possible care, treatment and outcomes for our patients and their families. Working in conjunction with partners across the health and social care system, this is an exciting time for our Foundation Trust as we meet the challenges facing the health service.
We are now seeking to recruit two talented and highly motivated Non-Executive Directors to join the Trust Board and drive forward the Trust’s strategic development. Working closely with the Chair, Professor Bill McCarthy, you will have a strong commitment to the principles of the NHS and provide strategic direction, leadership and challenge at the Board of Directors.
We wish to hear from candidates who can showcase a track record of success in one of the following areas:
- Financial acumen gained in either a senior role, perhaps as a CFO, or in a professional services capacity. A highly financially literate but well-rounded leader, you will bring your accountancy and wider knowledge to the Board in your capacity as Chair of the Audit Committee.
- A generalist Non-Executive Director, regardless of the sector you have worked in or your functional skill set, you will be able to add value to the workings of our Trust as we strive for excellence. Although we are interested in candidates offering general leadership experience, we are particularly seeking legal expertise.
Your role will be to ensure that the Trust fulfils its statutory and legislative responsibilities, whilst always prioritising a commitment to excellent patient care. You will utilise your professional skills and perspective to add value to the governance and strategic development of the Trust, holding executive leaders to account and offering collaborative challenge and advice. You are likely to have close links with the Yorkshire area and will be committed to making a difference to the way care is delivered to patients. You will be a dynamic individual who is progressive, ambitious and driven with a proven record of delivery and able to establish relationships across complex stakeholder landscapes.
Bradford has a diverse population; this is reflected in our workforce and we actively encourage individuals from under-represented groups to apply.
