Northumbria Healthcare NHS FT are looking to appoint a new Associate Non-Executive Director with medical experience to join their Board of Directors.
As an Associate Non-Executive Director, you will play an important role in monitoring the strategy, performance, risk, people management, and local accountability of the Trust. You will share responsibility with other Board Directors for the success of our organisation and the duties of the Board, providing an informed independent and objective challenge to the work of the Executive within an overall framework of guidance, trust, and mutual respect.
Associate Non-Executive Directors cannot participate in any formal vote at Board but will be part of a Unitary Board and have full exposure to all Board level discussions and decisions and will also sit on Board Sub-Committees.
This is an exciting, rewarding, and complex role with the opportunity to make a real difference as we focus on our vision to be the best provider in the country for integrated and specialist care. We want our Board to reflect the diversity of the population we serve, and we warmly welcome applications from members of our vibrant and diverse communities.
The successful candidate will be proven at Board or senior management level, with a strong track record of leadership in large and complex organisations. As well as possessing a sound knowledge of good corporate and clinical governance, you will have strong commercial acumen and experience in leading organisational change and growth.
More broadly, the successful candidate should have an understanding of strategic planning, risk, and performance management, and be accustomed to holding a high level of accountability with an ability to look beyond organisational and/or geographical boundaries.
You will be required to constructively challenge the decisions of the Board and help develop proposals on strategy, ensuring effective governance and compliance and meeting performance targets required by statutory bodies.
You will have a genuine interest in healthcare and the ability to assimilate NHS values, and exercise your commitment to public service values, and the needs of our local communities. As a leader, you should be highly approachable, compassionate, and inclusive, with an ability to build effective and lasting relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
*We manage three major locality hospitals at North Tyneside, Wansbeck and Hexham, plus a number of smaller community hospitals and clinics from Tynemouth to Berwick on Tweed, in addition to our state-of-the-art Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, the first of its kind in England.

We have one of the most extensive patient experience programmes of any trust in England.
