Business / Organisation Type: NHS
Role Title: Non-Executive Director
Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is an organisation internationally recognised for innovation and delivering leading edge ophthalmic treatment, research and teaching. We are now the leading eye hospital in the world seeing 750,000 patients across 25 UK and UAE sites. We continually rank as number one for research and education delivery in ophthalmology. We are ambitious for our future, and key to our strategy is the progression of our plans with the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Charity to develop a new centre of excellence for education, research and clinical care in central London (Oriel). This will transform eye care, research and education for decades to come, for the benefit of our patients.
At this exciting time, we are seeking to appoint a new Non-Executive Director to join our Board. Our Non-Executive Directors play a vital role in bringing an independent perspective to the unitary board. Working alongside other Board members, Non-Executive Directors have a duty to uphold the highest standards of integrity and probity, ensuring that the Trust is focused on providing the best possible care to our patients. Specifically, we are seeking candidates with high-level commercial expertise commensurate with the role of general counsel in a FTSE 100 organisation or other equivalent broad based legal experience. Candidates with recent regulatory, IP, healthcare or property experience would be of particular interest. Non-Executive Directors are expected to devote around 1.5 - 3 days per month to the role.
We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. We believe that the best Boards are those that are balanced and reflect the communities they serve. We particularly welcome applications from groups underrepresented at board level, in particular people from the Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and women, who are able to make a real contribution to shaping our strategic direction.
If you are excited by this challenge and feel you have skills and experiences that can be of value to the Trust, we would love to hear from you.
Closing date for applications is Wednesday 30th September.
