Non-Executive Director vacancies - work with us on the next stage of our journey

QVH has a proud heritage and is known throughout the world for pioneering new and innovative techniques and treatments; we continue to receive excellent feedback from patients and have made great strides in implementing our longer term strategy for delivering excellence.

Our last CQC visit rated us as ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ patient care and we are committed to working towards every aspect of QVH being rated as Outstanding. Our values of humanity, pride and continuous improvement are at the centre of everything we do.  With around 900 members of staff, an active council of governors and assisted by our band of volunteers, we have a great team here at QVH.  They are critical to our continued success and provide the expertise and ability to deliver the Trust’s vision for delivering excellence.

As part of the wider NHS, partnerships are particularly important for us.  We work with other trusts and our local health community to ensure a full spectrum of care can be provided, as well as being an active contributor to our local Sustainability and Transformation programme.

We are looking for two Non-Executive Directors who share our values and can work with us in leading QVH on the next stage of our journey. The roles would require a commitment of a minimum of three days per month for a term of three years.

Board level or senior experience in a significant sized enterprise; perhaps a listed company, or a public sector body, mutual or charitable trust would be advantageous. We are looking for one Non-Executive Director with a background in finance, with experience in IT and/or property; and a second with a clinical background, bringing a specific ability to scrutinise and support this aspect of the business.

Closing date: Friday 25 January 2019.
