University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust are looking for three new Non-Executive directors to help shape and influence its future strategic direction whilst supporting and challenging executive directors during on-going pandemic recovery, reduction of waiting lists and financial recovery; in addition an Associate NED with expertise in Digital. Non-Executive Directors will work with the Chair and other Executive and Non-Executive colleagues as voting members of the Board. 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.
We are particularly looking for NEDs who possess at least one or more of the following:
- Finance with strong commercial awareness. Strong preference for experience in/exposure to the public sector. Qualified accountant would be preferable but candidates with strong commercial expertise would also be considered. Track record of reducing cost and adding value.
