The Golden Jubilee Foundation – Board Members
The Golden Jubilee Foundation is looking for two new members to join its Board – one with experience of expansion/transformation programmes; and one with accountancy, finance and audit skills. As a non-executive member of the Board, you will have a key role in supporting the delivery of the organisation’s strategic direction in addition to contributing to scrutinising performance, and discharging governance and accountability functions. These roles are as challenging as they are rewarding – and you will be offered the training you’ll need to make a strong contribution.
If you are looking for a rewarding and worthwhile opportunity, we would like to hear from you. Applications are invited from a wide range of people who have an interest in public service and are committed to the NHS in Scotland. Please pass on details of these opportunities to anyone else you think may be interested.
The Golden Jubilee Foundation is unique within the NHS. A national institution, independently run by its own NHS Board, the Golden Jubilee Foundation is helping to re-define the concept of the public hospital, with a vision of “Leading Quality, Research and Innovation” for NHSScotland.
For these posts you must be able to demonstrate ONE of the following:
– Experience of overseeing a major expansion/transformation programme; or
– Accountancy, finance and audit skills
In addition to the above, you will also need to demonstrate the following core skills:
– an ability to communicate effectively;
– an ability to build effective relationships with stakeholders who have competing interests;
– an ability to contribute to ‘bigger picture’ (eg strategic) thinking.
– an ability to analyse and review complex issues; and
– an ability to influence decision making and challenge constructively;
You do not need to be an expert in health or have previous experience of being on a Board. We are looking for people who have the capacity and commitment to grow into the role, to develop their skills and to learn new skills they may require.
Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on the Boards of Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50.
For more specific detail of the particular requirements of the roles, please see the the person specification, which forms part of the application pack. Also included in the pack is more detailed information about Golden Jubilee Foundation and its role within NHS Scotland.
Remuneration: £8,169 per annum (non-pensionable) is payable. You will also receive reimbursement for all reasonable travel and subsistence costs and any reasonable dependant-carer expenses incurred whilst undertaking Board duties and for support required to help you carry out your duties effectively.
Time commitment: The time commitment will vary week to week, but on average the role will take up around 8 hours per week. This time will be a mix of daytime Board meetings, committee meetings, reading documents and attending stakeholder events. You should also demonstrate an adequate degree of flexibility to attend at a greater frequency subject to the Board’s ongoing business needs.
Appointment details: The term of appointment will be for up to 4 years. When a term comes to an end, the skills the board requires will be reassessed. If you satisfy the requirements of the new person specification at that time, and there is evidence of your effective performance, Scottish Ministers may consider reappointing you for a further term. A non-executive member’s total period of appointment will not exceed eight years.
Location: Meetings of the Board and its Committees will normally take place in the Golden Jubilee National Hospital & Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Clydebank, although they may on occasion be held elsewhere around Scotland.
Interviews: It is expected that interviews will be held on 28th and 29th of June in the Golden Jubilee National Hospital & Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Clydebank.
