Non Executive Directors - EPUT

Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT) is a Trust with a workforce of 6,000, who work across 200 sites, providing mental health, community health, learning disability and social care services to 1.3m people across Essex, Suffolk, Luton and Bedfordshire.

We are looking to appoint two Non-Executive Directors who will assist us in our role as a leading community and mental health Trust and valued system leader.

Sharing responsibility with fellow Board Directors for the strategic leadership, direction, governance and overall success of the organisation, he/she will bring independence, objective judgement and constructive challenge to bear on issues of strategy, performance and resources.

Prior Board experience in the NHS or public sector is highly desirable together with a background in either Organisational Development or Finance.  Additionally, the Board could benefit from someone with strong business acumen, demonstrable experience of leading transformation and large scale change programmes and experience of working in a complex partnership working environment.

We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities we serve. We are therefore seeking to increase the diversity of our Board to make it truly representative of our workforce and local population and so would particularly welcome applications from people from groups that are under-represented at Board level.
