Sheffield Children’s is seeking to appoint an inspirational, values-driven Chair who will lead us into a new era.

This is an exciting time for a new Chair to join us, with final funding approved for our new National Centre for Child Health Technology (NCCHT) at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park and with the opportunity for Sheffield Children’s to play an even greater role on local, regional and national platforms.

Our partnerships are strong at a local level (as an active part of the Sheffield place-based partnership), at regional level (playing a leading role in collaboration activity in our Integrated Care System in South Yorkshire and working with the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority), and nationally, as part of the national Children’s Hospital Alliance. We also work very closely with The Children’s Hospital Charity to fund things that are over and above standard NHS provision.

Few Board Chair roles nationally will offer such an opportunity to influence the life chances of future generations of children and young people – not just in Sheffield and South Yorkshire, but nationally and internationally through our many specialist services with clinicians considered amongst the best in the world.

As our new Chair you will have the opportunity to lead a Board that prides itself on keeping patients at the heart of its decisions and be part of an organisation that is committed to enhancing the health and wellbeing for the millions of people who live in our communities.

The successful candidate should demonstrate inspirational leadership qualities gained at board level in organisations of complexity and influence, with the capability to not only lead a board of directors, but to play an important leadership role at place, at system and on a national stage.

We want our Board to be as inclusive and diverse as possible.  We encourage applications from individuals who bring lived experience that equips them both for the leadership aspects of the role but also brings an understanding of some of the challenges of our local communities.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 24 July 2023. If you share our values, attitudes and behaviours, please get in contact.
