Non-Executive Director Vacancies

Non-Executive Director/Chair of Audit & Risk Committee

Closing date: Friday, March 2nd 2018

We’re looking for an individual to join our Board of Directors¹ - someone with real drive and enthusiasm, who will share our passion for creating a hospital that gives patients the best possible care and offers our staff a great place to work.

Non-Executive Directors at Chesterfield Royal Hospital have the chance to see things from a different perspective. It’s a unique opportunity to appreciate patient and staff experience first-hand, as well as the challenges and potentials within the organisation.

Rated ‘GOOD’ by the Care Quality Commission in 2017, you’d join an organisation that serves more than 400,000 people across North Derbyshire’s varied communities. We are the area’s largest employer - with 3,900 staff working at the hospital, in the community and in GP surgeries.

If you have a commensurate professional financial qualification, a solid background in finance or audit roles and perhaps have experience of rapid business transformation in a complex setting, we would be keen to hear from you.
