Join our Board as a Non-Executive Director

Posted: 11th October 2018

Salford Primary Care Together CIC is helping to shape how health and social care services are provided in the future bringing the voice of primary care professionals and neighbourhoods to help positively impact health and wellbeing across the City of Salford.

We are excited and inspired by this challenge and are looking for two Non-Executive Directors to help take us forward on this journey.

As a start-up social enterprise (registered as a Community Interest Company) we are now emerging into our second full year of operational activity. We’ve achieved a lot, changed a lot and learnt a lot along the way.

Following the successful recruitment of two new Non-Executive Directors last year, we are now seeking to recruit a further two to three independent Non-Executive Directors to complete the Board and help us deliver our plans to support the people of Salford to live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives.

Working closely with the Chair and Chief Executive, our Non-Executive Directors will champion the vision and values of the company, ensure effective organisational strategies are in place, and make certain that the Board is always able to discharge its duties and responsibilities. In this second tranche of recruitment we are particularly keen to hear from people with Non-Executive experience, one of whom will possess considerable experience at director level in a finance and risk role. For our other Non-Executive Director(s), we’re looking for candidates who brings significant experience in shaping health and care strategy and policy, and / or is able to champion the voice of the people we serve. We would also welcome candidates with experience in the fields of people/organisation development and/or business development.

We feel it’s crucial our new Non-Executive Directors possess:
 Commitment to the vision and values of Salford Primary Care Together;
 Relevant experience of establishing and maintaining effective governance structures;
 An ability to confidently navigate a complex and changing health and social care landscape;
 Credibility with key stakeholders, including local GPs, the Integrated Care Organisation and commissioners; and
 An ability to place local people at the heart of organisational decision making.

One of the new Non-Executive Directors will be asked to assume, following induction, the chairing role of the Finance and Business Development Committee, which oversees financial and commercial governance; and the other new Non-Executive Director will chair the People and Remuneration Committee, which oversees the design and delivery of our People Strategy, senior appointments and remuneration.

The commitment in terms of time will be around 1 – 2 days per month and will involve serving on the Board as well as serving on an assurance sub-committee. This post will be remunerated.

Closing date: 9am on Monday 18th February 2019

Interviews will be held on: Wednesday 27th February 2019 (between 13.00 & 18.00)
