As we make progress in our collaborative journey, we are looking for forward-thinking, committed individuals with great drive and determination to provide the oversight and guidance that will help all of our organisations to achieve their full potential.

We are looking to appoint two new non-executive directors over the coming months, as existing board members reach the end of their terms of office. 

Under our collaborative governance structure, each non-executive director is a member of the board of two of our trusts and, therefore, a member of the Collaborative’s board in common. They are also expected to chair a board committee for one of their trusts and will be a member of  two committees at their other trust.

The roles that we are looking to fill include:

We want to secure a diverse mix of highly capable and credible board level or equivalent leaders who bring a sustained track record of success in a relevant setting. This could be in the public, private or not-for-profit sectors. You will be an effective role model, exhibiting and promoting collaborative leadership behaviours and providing strategic vision, high challenge and support.

We are keen to hear from those who share our vision and ambition. We value and promote diversity and believe that the best boards are those that reflect the workforce and communities they serve. We particularly welcome applications from women, people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and people with disabilities who are currently under-represented in non-executive roles. As such, we are open to appointing people who have gained their resilience and experience outside of the usual settings and who can bring fresh thinking to our board.
