ARE you ready to lead pioneering change across a healthcare system?

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust is looking for self-motivated, high-achieving individuals to join its team in non-executive director positions.

The trust has just received an overall rating of good from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with a rating of outstanding in care, and is committed to delivering high quality care to create “a great place to be cared for; a great place to work”.

As a non-executive director, linked to the Quality Committee, you will work alongside the chair, other non-executives and executive directors, to inform, deliver and develop the trust’s ethos.

The post is also a great way to support your local community through the development of great local healthcare.

Your role, working alongside the chairman and executive directors of the foundation trust board, will be to advise on the development of strategy and to oversee the performance of the hospital, bringing independent and objective judgement to bear on issues of strategy, performance and resources.

These posts will also be a key part of the oversight and assurance to inform the trust’s approach to developing a strategic transformation plan to work across health and social care in Cumbria and Lancashire.

The trust is looking for individuals with substantial strategic, board-level leadership experience in a comparably complex organisation, with a track record of achievement in your chosen field.

You will need the ability to network and to influence agendas at a local, and regional level, demonstrating a commitment to continuously improving standards of quality and experience, and recognising the dedication of staff and volunteers.

You will also need high-level governance and organisational skills gained in a regulated environment.

The post will require commercial experience within a large complex organisation, along with experience of working with finances, a proven track record of delivery of successful change management including having project managed major projects. 

The contract is for a fixed term period of three years; remuneration will be £12,000 per annum for a minimum commitment of 3-4 days per month. This may be during the working day or in the evening.

The selection process will include an informal meeting with key stakeholders, which will take place in late March-early April 2019, and, for successful candidates, formal interviews will take place on April 30 2019.
