Sheffield Children’s calls out to people of all backgrounds in search for new non-executive director

18 September 2020

Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is looking for a new non-executive director to join the Trust’s Board of Directors.

Non-executive directors play a crucial role on any Board by bringing an independent perspective to the boardroom. They provide constructive challenge, help develop strategy and set the tone by championing the values and behaviours necessary for the Trust to succeed.

Sheffield Children’s is the only dedicated children’s trust in the country that provides care for children and young people across community, mental health and acute specialist settings. 

We are seeking to appoint a non-executive director to our Board of Directors who will help us to better reflect the diverse experiences of our staff, patients and stakeholders.  We particularly would welcome applications from members of our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities who are currently under-represented on our Board of Directors.

The successful candidate will have a significant track record of leadership, strategic focus and personal achievement in a complex environment.  As a non-executive director you will need the ability to influence the strategic direction of the organisation and have a passion for developing the quality of service provided by the Trust. You will also need to act as an ambassador and advocate for the Trust.

If you are interested in applying for the role, you can download the candidate guide

To apply, please submit a CV and a structured letter of application of no more than two sides that identifies how you meet the requirements of the person specification (see penultimate page of the candidate guide) to matthew.kane1@nhs.net by 11th October 2020.
