Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital has an international reputation as a leading specialist provider of cardiothoracic services and is rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission; we lead the way in providing high quality patient and family centred services, research and innovation.

Our vision is to be the best – leading and delivering outstanding heart and chest care and research and we are looking to recruit two exceptional Non-Executive Directors with the zeal and vision to join our Board and help us realise this ambition.  The posts do not require any NHS experience although the ability to quickly develop an understanding of the context in which the NHS is operating and the challenges it faces will be important. You will need an excellent understanding of strategic organisational change within a complex and dynamic external environment, with significant leadership experience gained in large complex organisations.  You will be expected to contribute across all aspects of the Trust’s business.

Your background should include senior-level experience in research and academia, commerce, or major organisational change.  You must be committed to putting patients and carers at the heart of decision making and to excellence, openness and transparency.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit.  We believe that the best Boards are those that reflect the communities they serve. We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.
