Non Executive Director

Hello and thank you for your interest in Devon Partnership NHS Trust (DPT). We are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing and we are looking for new Non-Executive Directors to support our work. We are open to new colleagues from a broad range of professional backgrounds including, but not limited to, finance, commissioning, public health and digitalisation.

Currently rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission, we aspire to be an ‘Outstanding’ organisation, providing the very best care to our communities and the very best working environment for our staff. We strive to use the expertise that sits within our own organisation and the resources and skills of our partners across the health and care economy to enable us to deliver high quality services that are safe, focused on people’s recovery and driven by the voices of those who use them. As an organisation we endeavour to be open, responsive and inclusive in our attitude and our practices, engaging internally and externally to ensure we learn from others. As a Board, we are clear that truly outstanding clinical services can only be delivered by an empowered workforce, supported by an innovative digitalisation strategy that ensures care is delivered to the people using our services in a personalised, accessible and responsive way.

To ensure that the Board can support the organisation in delivering outstanding care for the people that use our services, we need to have the strongest skills around the Board table and the most effective Board governance – so there has never been a more meaningful time to join us as a Non-Executive Director and bring your support, challenge and insight. While it would be helpful to bring in new team members who already have some familiarity with the roles and responsibilities of Non-Executive Directors, more important to us is our commitment to increasing the diversity of our Board and wider organisation and so we would particularly welcome applications from people from under-represented groups.
