South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) provides a range of emergency, urgent care and non-emergency healthcare services, along with commercial logistics services. The Trust delivers most of these services to the populations of the South Central region – Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire – as well as non-emergency patient transport services in Surrey and Sussex. We serve a population of over seven million people across the six counties. We employ 3,600 staff who, together with over 1,000 volunteers, enable us to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

 

We are now seeking to appoint a Non-Executive Director who will support us in maintaining our high quality services and responding to the challenges presented by the evolving healthcare landscape within which we operate. You will bring experience gained within (and therefore an understanding of) the complex stakeholder map and increasingly integrated health and social care system within which we operate. A track record of providing strategic leadership within structures of comparable complexity and scale and of engaging and working through a breadth of stakeholders will be essential. Above all your independence of judgement and values driven approach, aligned to our own unified, values base, will be what sets you apart.

We’ve got an exciting and challenging agenda ahead of us; one focussed on delivering exceptional services to a diverse and dispersed population. We are looking for an individual with the credibility to challenge constructively, work collaboratively and help us maintain effective stewardship and governance to ensure we truly are fit for the future.

To apply, please complete the basic information in the application form and upload your CV.

Any applications will be reviewed by GatenbySanderson who are acting on behalf of the Trust in support of this recruitment process.
