Non-executive Director - James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

This is an exciting opportunity to make a real contribution to the healthcare of our local community. We are seeking a person living in the locality to join our dynamic Board to help us shape the way that we use our financial resources to provide quality care in an ever changing political landscape.

We provide acute hospital services to the population of Great Yarmouth and Waveney and a substantial number of visitors. Our first priority is to ensure our patients remain central to everything we do and that they always come first.

The Care Quality Commission’s most recent rating confirms that we are a ‘Good’ Trust. We are proud of our hospital and the people that work here; we are ambitious, innovative and focused on continuous improvement, delivering services in different ways to ensure they are sustainable and provide what our patients need. Overall we are doing well, but there is always room for improvement; the financial situation remains an ongoing challenge when balanced against safe, high quality care and access to services.

After a period of hand over, you will take over as Chair of the Board’s Audit Committee, providing an ‘oversight’ role on behalf of the Board, reviewing the adequacy and effectiveness of controls. This will focus on the Trust’s governance processes, risk management and internal control, internal and external audit, counter fraud and financial reporting. We are developing a more commercial approach as an important way of increasing our income to help us develop our site and our services and to maximise the benefit for our patients. This role would challenge and provide assurance on value for money and the effectiveness of systems and processes.

As a corporate Board member, you will work with other Non Executive Directors and the Executive Directors, collectively taking full responsibility for the success of our organisation. Our current Board is very effective and demonstrates shared values. If you are likeminded and are….

Passionate about quality of care

  • An excellent communicator with a talent for influencing change
  • Able to relate to groups and individuals at all levels
  • Skilled at questioning, offering challenge and independent thinking
  • A strategic thinker, giving consideration to complex challenges
  • Honest with integrity and high ethical standards
  • Suitably qualified and experienced

... we would very much value your application. As a diverse multicultural organisation, we welcome interest from all sections of society. A full programme of induction and relevant training will be offered to the successful candidate.

The James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust recognises the requirement to promote health and reduce ill-health. The Trust is committed to the principles of improving working lives through a number of initiatives such as job share, flexible working and the development of a culture of openness and transparency.

The Company operates and manages 11 airports in the Highlands and Islands (Barra, Benbecula, Campbeltown, Inverness, Islay, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Sumburgh, Tiree and Wick) and Dundee. These airports are vital to the social and economic welfare of the areas they serve and enable the communities to stay connected.

None of HIAL's airports operates on a solely commercial basis and the Scottish Government provides subsidy to HIAL to close the gap between commercial revenue and operating costs to allow services to be maintained.

Board Responsibilities

Issues considered by the Board include the overall strategy and direction of the business; security, safety and operational matters, commercial and route development, financial management, risk management, pay and pensions.

Role of the Chair of the Board

The Board meets regularly to provide strategic direction for the Company. Major policy decisions are made at Board level drawing on information provided by the Management Team, the Scottish Government and other appropriate sources of information.

The decisions of the Board are actioned through the Managing Director and the senior management team of the Company. The Chair will demonstrate clear and effective leadership of the Board to ensure that the views of all Board members are taken into account while giving clear direction to the management of the company on how to proceed.

The role involves:

  • providing effective strategic leadership to the Board and the Company in the management and operation of its 11 airports;
  • working closely with the Scottish Government to deliver Ministers' policies and priorities;
  • leading the development of the Company's strategic plan;
  • overseeing the continuous improvement of the management of the Company;
  • monitoring expenditure and promoting efficiencies and revenue generation, the maintenance of its airports estates and related investments and commercial opportunities;
  • representing and speaking on behalf of the Board in dealings with Ministers, the media and a wide range of stakeholders; and
  • assessing the performance of individual Board members and the Managing Director on an annual basis.

Skills

Applicants will be expected to:

  • provide strategic leadership to a Board and form a robust and supportive relationship with the Managing Director and Directors;
  • demonstrate high standards of communication, presentational and media skills in order to act as the public face nationally;
  • have a proven track record of relationship building and networking with stakeholders from the public and private sectors;
  • demonstrate recent skills in ensuring effective corporate governance;
  • have a successful track record operating in a commercial environment and in particular in relation to the economic development of communities and stakeholders;
  • demonstrate a clear understanding of the public and political environment in which HIAL operates.

The Chair will be required to devote a minimum of the equivalent of six days per month to the post and receives £22,320 per annum (72 days at a daily rate of £310.00), which is non-pensionable. Travel and subsistence costs and reasonable receipted childcare and dependent carer expenses directly related to the work of HIAL will also be reimbursed.

The appointment is for three years. There is the possibility of reappointment subject to evidence of effective performance and satisfying the skills and knowledge required at the time of reappointment and beyond. Any appointments and subsequent reappointments will not extend beyond a maximum of eight years.

An application pack and full details on this and other public appointments can be found via the link below.

The closing date for applications is Monday, 3 September 2018.

The Scottish Ministers are committed to diversity and equality and particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on the Boards of Scotland's public bodies, such as women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50.

Accessibility to public appointments is a fundamental requirement and the public appointments process promotes, demonstrates and upholds equality of opportunity and treatment to all applicants.

Please pass on details of this opportunity to anyone else you think may be interested.

The State Hospital is one of four high secure hospitals in the UK. Located in South Lanarkshire in central Scotland, it is a national service for Scotland and Northern Ireland and one part of the pathway of care that should be available for those with secure care needs. The principal aim is to rehabilitate patients, ensuring safe transfer to appropriate lower levels of security.

The State Hospitals Board for Scotland is looking for one new member to join its Board. As a non-executive member of the Board, you will be expected to play a central role in ensuring equitable provision of high quality, secure and clinically effective services to meet the mental health and social care needs of all patients.

  • financial, audit and risk experience;
  • an ability to influence decision making and challenge constructively;
  • an ability to contribute to ‘bigger picture' (eg strategic) thinking;
  • an ability to analyse and review complex issues; and
  • an understanding of effective governance.

You do not need to be an expert in mental health or have previous experience of being on a Board. We are looking for people who have the capacity and commitment to grow into the role, to develop their skills and to learn new skills they may require.

The Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on Scotland's public bodies, such as women, disabled people, those from minority ethnic communities, and people aged under 50.

For more specific detail of the particular requirements of the roles, please see the the person specification, which forms part of the application pack. Also included in the pack is more detailed information about the State Hospitals Board for Scotland and its role within NHS Scotland.

Remuneration: £8,251 per annum (non-pensionable) is payable.

2 x Non-executive Directors - Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

NHFT is looking to recruit a number of Non-executive Directors to assist on its exciting journey of expanding the range of services provided to service users and developing new and innovative models of care, often in partnership with other local organisations.

Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust delivers a comprehensive range of physical and mental health services principally, but not exclusively, to the 700,000 population of Northamptonshire. Our vision is to be a leading provider of outstanding, compassionate care. We employ around 5000 people and provide both inpatient and community-based services. We are committed to putting safety and quality at the heart of everything we do.

We are seeking to recruit two Non-Executive Directors to join our well established Board. Integral to our success, they will help drive forward our strategy to build a strong, sustainable organisation that provides joined up pathways of care that meet the individual needs of our patients. Whether a first-time NED or not, we are willing to consider senior individuals with board-level experience from the public or private sectors with the vision and expertise to play a pivotal role in the success of the Trust.

You will understand the complexities of working in a multi-site operation, bring high levels of personal and business integrity and be able to ensure exemplary standards of quality, probity and governance. With the ability to challenge and debate constructively in a Board environment, your commitment and engagement with patients, carers and the community will be consistent with our values, leading to successful outcomes for us and our patients.

Renumeration: £12,500 per annum

Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is committed to building a diverse Board that is representative of its local community and encourages applications from minority candidates. All applicants should be able to demonstrate an interest in Northamptonshire and preferably live in the county or in a neighbouring county.
