Partners' news: local hospitals begin search for a new Non-Executive Director
Thursday 21st November 2019
Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) is looking for an experienced and talented Non-executive Director to join the Trust’s Board of Directors.
As one of Yorkshire’s leading acute trusts, DBTH serves a population of more than 444,000 across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas. Employing over 6,600 people across three main hospital sites and a number of additional services, the Trust is one of only six teaching hospitals in Yorkshire and trains 25% of all medical students and 30% of all other health professionals in the region.
Non-executive Directors (NED) play a crucial role on any board by bringing an independent perspective to the Trust boardroom. They provide constructive challenge, help develop strategy and set the ‘tone at the top’ in terms of championing the values and behaviours necessary for the Trust to succeed.
Interested candidates must have experience in a similar board-level environment, highly developed interpersonal and communication skills, sound independent judgment, common sense and diplomacy.
Ideally, the Trust is looking for candidates with experience of one (or more) of IT/digital and research/academia. However, candidates with a background in patient experience and engagement or experience with estates, finance or legal will also be considered.
Suzy Brain England OBE, Chair of the Board, said: “In all, we are looking for a highly influential, enthusiastic and motivated individual with great vision, energy, drive, relationships and the ability to enhance what we do as an organisation.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Trust, lending your expertise and skill to help guide both the Board and the organisation into, what promises to be, a bright and exciting future.”
