Salary: £13,635 per annum

Job Type:

Job ID: 168852

Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust is seeking two non-executive directors to further enhance the knowledge and expertise on our board. We see this as an exciting opportunity to use your talents and expertise to make a really positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

As one of the largest providers of mental health and learning disability services in the Country we cover a huge geography with substantial inpatient facilities in Darlington, Durham, Middlesbrough & York alongside further community-based teams and services. With an annual income of £420m and staff of 7,500, this is a diverse and growing Trust which works closely with our partners in the health system, local authorities, universities, and the wider community of providers including voluntary and charitable organisations.

Over the last year we have embarked on a “Big Conversation” with colleagues, service users, families, carers and partners to develop our plans to improve and create key values that we will live in all that we do. This has inspired “Our Journey to Change” which sets out our vision, our values and three strategic goals for the next 5 years.

The values of respect, compassion and responsibility are core to the way in which we will deliver both clinical and corporate services in the future; understandably as a board member you will be a strong advocate and role model for those values. 

This is a crucial stage in organisation’s development, as such we are looking for two established, high calibre leaders who are self-aware, strategically orientated with an inquisitive nature to provide effective challenge and support to the board.

We are particularly keen to attract applications from the private sector / third sector and are specifically interested in applicants with experience in the following key areas:

• Business • Human Resources • Communications, Marketing & Public Relations • Estates

Candidates must live in the area served by the Trust or adjacent to it for practical reasons; however, applications from residents of the City of York or North Yorkshire would be welcomed.

The Trust values the diversity of all staff and is committed to equality. We positively encourage applications from all sections of the community regardless of age, gender, racial origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation or disability including people who have experienced mental ill health.

Time Commitment: Average of 4 - 5 days per month

If you are interested and would like to apply please forward a copy of your CV together with a brief covering letter to Scot McHarg c/o NRG Executive at scotmcharg@nrgplc.com.

Closing Date: 28th June 2021

Interview & Assessment Date: 6th July
