£13k per annum for around 4 days per month
East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) was formed in July 2018, following the merger of Ipswich and Colchester Hospitals, and is now one of the largest health trusts in the country.
They provide healthcare to almost a million people – not only from their two acute hospital sites, but also from a number of community settings, including six community hospitals, high street clinics, surgeries and in people’s homes.
They have a £950 million budget, and employ around 12,000 dedicated and caring staff. The Trust is run by a Board of Directors which has overall responsibility for everything we do. It is made up of both Executive and Non-Executive Directors, who provide an independent check on how well the Trust runs.
They now have three opportunities to join our Board – one as a Non-Executive Director (NED), and two as Associate NEDs. For the NED, they are particularly keen to hear from those with experience either of commercial leadership, or of leading change through digital / technology, and who have operated at a senior and strategic level in a complex organisation.
All three individuals will provide expert support to the Board, and will contribute to a range of Board committees. While Associate NEDs do not participate in formal Board votes, the role has been designed both to support NHS Board succession strategy and to achieve a balance of Board level skills. Associate NEDS may also be considered for appointment as a NED of the Board in future, should a vacancy arise which matches their skills. Local knowledge or connection will be a distinct advantage.
Each of these roles represents an excellent opportunity to join a well-regarded and high-performing organisation, with a clear trajectory of ambition. Whether you are an experienced or aspiring non-executive, we can offer both challenge and support, along with a highly-expert and motivated group of colleagues at every level. The culture is highly respectful, appreciative and accountable, and we have an agile approach to decision-making. They are striving to build a board that reflects the full range of diversity, and we very warmly encourage applications from all those whose life experience and insights are not heard often enough at Board level.
