About Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.  You will have senior board level experience in one or more of the following areas:

Clinical and patient safety expertise gained from medical, nursing, allied disciplines or social care experience at a senior level in an academic, research, regulatory or clinically focused role

Experience of working in a “high reliability organisation” or in an industry or business that exhibits exemplary practices in safety, security and quality

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board

bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development

hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge

shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust

All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.

As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role.  These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Modelopens in a new window.

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
