The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Non-Executive Director

Remunerated

Location: Oswestry, Shropshire

A Non-Executive Director with a background in financial management and governance at a strategic level is being sought to join the Board of The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH).

RJAH is a leading orthopaedic centre of excellence undertaking more hip and knee joint replacement operations than any other centre across Europe. We are a specialist hospital with a reputation for innovation and for exceptional patient experience. We provide a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal surgical, medical and rehabilitation services locally, regionally and nationally.

Due to the expiry of the term of one of our Non-Executive Directors later this year, there is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with a financial background to share their talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of the people we serve.

We are seeking candidates with an excellent track record of achievement within either the public or private sectors. A recognised financial qualification is essential as the successful candidate will assume the role of Chair of the Trust’s Audit Committee. A values-driven leader with a genuine commitment to patients and a collegiate approach, you will have experience of providing constructive challenge, high levels of scrutiny and the ability to help the executive team manage risk in a patient-centred NHS Trust. Some experience of implementing or overseeing the commissioning of digital systems would also be advantageous though not essential. The successful candidate may also be asked to represent the Trust in our work with the wider health system.

We anticipate that this new appointment will complement the skill and expertise of our existing Executive and Non-Executive Directors as well as providing an opportunity to develop a more diverse and representative Board of Directors. The Trust is keen to hear from applicants from all sectors who offer relevant audit and risk experience at board level in complex environments.
