We’re an award winning organisation which exists to help people reach their potential and live well in their communities.

Our compassionate, dedicated and enthusiastic staff are committed to living our values every day:

• We put the person first and in the centre
• We know that families and carers matter
• We are respectful, honest, open and transparent
• We improve and aim to be outstanding
• We are relevant today and ready for tomorrow

Our values guide us in providing a range of community, mental health and learning disability services to more than a million people across Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield. We also provide some medium secure (forensic) services to the whole of Yorkshire and the Humber and some wellbeing services in other parts of Yorkshire.

We’re looking for two non-executive directors one of whom must be financially qualified, with senior-level financial management experience, to join our strong and stable unitary Board in guiding our 4,400-strong workforce to deliver the highest quality care for local people. You’ll have the ability to build strong relationships, provide support and constructive challenge to the executive team, and help us to continue to improve the services we deliver. You will bring the capability and enthusiasm to support our ambitious vision and goals within the context of significant change, transformation and opportunity, both within the organisation and in the wider NHS.

You will demonstrate an ability to engage positively and collaboratively in Board discussions and act as an ambassador for the Trust. You should also bring strong relationship management skills and have a passion for delivering excellence. Able to champion our drive for service excellence, you will demonstrate experience of working, ideally at Board level, in large, complex, customer-focused organisations.

In addition to financial expertise, we are also interested in receiving applications from individuals with a background and experience in one or more of the following areas: workforce/human resources; IT/digital technology (especially within healthcare), and health and social care and from those who are legally qualified.

You must live within South or West Yorkshire and we welcome applications from all aspects of society, including people from BAME communities, people with disabilities, younger people, service users and carers.

If you share our ambition for success and can offer the commitment needed, please attend one of our drop in recruitment/information events to meet members of our Trust Board.
