Non Executive Director

At Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, we are committed to providing healthcare at its best with people at our heart. With an outstanding reputation as one of the best performing hospitals in the UK, we have a long and established reputation for innovation and leading-edge health research.

These are exciting and challenging times for the NHS, both nationally and locally, and we now have an opportunity to refresh our Board and appoint one new Non-Executive Director (NED). The new Board member will provide constructive challenge, independence of thought, support diverse insight and strategic input, and ensure that we have robust systems of risk management and governance in place.

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our existing Board, and positively improve the representation of people from ethnic minority groups. To achieve this, we are seeking applications from people who are passionate about high quality healthcare and delivering outstanding services across the system and whose background, experience and identity will broaden and enhance the breadth of our leadership perspective and style in navigating both current and future challenges.

The ideal candidates will bring senior professional experience of managing, maintaining and developing a large workforce and of implementing, in any sector, large-scale change management and people transformation programmes at pace. Beyond this, they will need to demonstrate a strong alignment to our core values and direct experience of promoting and enabling diversity of thought and delivery.
