Non Executive Directorships

Non-Executive Director Merton Health Limited, Merton GP Federation

Location: Raynes Park, Surrey

Date Posted: 13/12/2018

Closing Date:

£8,100 a year
Part-time

Job Summary

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a well-respected Director to join the GP Federation in the role of Non-Executive Director (NED) and Board Member. The NED will have a full vote at Board meetings. The NED will also act as the Chair for the Audit & Finance Committee and as such will require a formal finance qualification.

We are seeking to appoint an individual who shares our values and ambitions and is passionate about building on our success. You will be comfortable operating in a changing environment.

We are looking for an individual who has proven experience in:

  • Influencing strategy, quality improvements and service delivery at Board level.
  • Effective and credible communication with a wide range of shareholders at both local and national levels.
  • Ensuring corporate and clinical governance.
  • Demonstrating and understanding complex strategic issues in order to achieve enhanced delivery of clinical services.
  • Experience of challenging current thinking and clinical practice in a constructive and positive way.

The time commitment on average is 1 day per month, for the purpose of attending the Federation board meeting and one other half day per month for involvement in sub-committees or support to Director colleagues. As with all NED posts, the time commitment will be flexible in terms of it patterning across the year with some months requiring greater input and less depending on the service issues. The NED post will carry a remuneration package of £8,100 per annum.

NHS experience would be advantageous but is not essential. The successful candidate will have extensive experience of working at board level and support and challenging thinking in the development of new ways of working in order to deliver the best outcomes for our patients.
