The NHS in Lincolnshire is currently recruiting Non-executive Directors (NED), with two vacancies at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT), to join the Board of Directors in challenging yet rewarding roles.

We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We aim for diversity within our Trust, across our workforce and in our leadership teams. It is important to us that our workforce represents the community of Lincolnshire that they serve and would particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people that are under-represented in their current Board memberships.

For all roles you will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services in Lincolnshire. Applicants should live in or have strong connections with Lincolnshire.

The available roles are:

Chair of Finance, Performance and Investment Committee

The applicant must have a recognised financial qualification and current or recent relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation. Experience of strategic responsibility for other organisational resources, e.g. people, digital and estates are also desirable.

Chair of People and Organisational Development Committee

The applicant must have current or recent experience at a strategic level of the management of people in a large and complex multidisciplinary setting. Experience of managing cultural change would be an advantage.

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the Board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the Trust

All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
