Chair - Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust

At Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust, our people provide excellent care at the heart of the community in the most challenging of circumstances.

We are now looking for a new Chair to lead our Board and Council of Governors to help ensure we are able to both meet future challenges and make the most of the opportunities that lie ahead.  We are looking for someone with warmth, humour and a strong moral compass. An empathetic and innovative leader with expertise in delivering change in complex situations, an ability to bring people and partners together to achieve common goals, and a clear and demonstrable commitment to living and leading by our values.

We believe in supporting everyone to be the best that they can be and in enabling individuals to bring their whole self to work. We are committed to increasing our diversity at all levels in the organisation and, for this key role, we are particularly keen to attract candidates who can bring diverse perspectives. We welcome expressions of interest from the widest possible range of backgrounds particularly those who are underrepresented at Board level in the NHS.

If this sounds like a challenge you are up for, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact our recruitment partners Rhiannon Smith or Jenny Adrian at Hunter Healthcare on 07939 250362 or by email at
