Non-Executive Director Role

The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically impacted the landscape of the NHS and created a wave of change that will reach far into the future. Our priority now, with your help, is to re-think and remodel service provision to ensure we continue to provide the highest quality of health care to our communities.

The role of NED is a timely opportunity for you to join our Board. Working with our executive team, you will provide strategic oversight and play a key role in shaping the future direction of our Trust and support our mission to ensure every patient’s experience is the best it can be.

This role will be integral to the strategic planning and success of our new venture, QTS; so in addition to significant board/senior-level experience in an organisation of similar in size and complexity, we are keen to hear from those with experience in estates, facilities, or wider commercial management.

Strong candidates will have experience in commercial strategy development, partnership development; financial management and leadership and a track record of leading organisations through times of change and transition.

You will share responsibility with other directors for the success of the organisation using the available resources to deliver healthcare and improve the health of local people. You will bring independent and objective judgement to bear on issues of strategy, performance and resources.

Time Commitment

Non-Executive Directors at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust must devote sufficient time to ensure satisfactory discharge of their duties. This will be a minimum of 3 days per month. This will comprise a mixture of set commitments (such as a monthly board meeting and committee meetings) and more flexible arrangements for ad-hoc events, reading and preparation. A degree of flexibility will be required and some time commitment may be during the evening.
