Non-Executive Director

£13,000 per annum – three days a month.

At South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) we are responsible for providing ambulance services across 10,000 square miles or 20% of mainland England. Covering the counties of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and the former Avon area (Bristol, Bath, North and North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire), we serve a population of over 5.5 million with an estimated 23 million visitors each year.

With a clear commitment to ‘deliver exceptional patient care by exceptional people’; we are a caring organisation exemplified by our high levels of compassion, kindness and respect towards people. An innovative organisation, we are about to embark on a period of significant change and development.  The Trust is seeking to appoint a Non-Executive Director to join our Board. We are looking for those already working at Board or a very senior executive level, who can strengthen the Board as we aim to:

  • Work in an ever evolving digital and technical operating environment where we will need to challenge our thinking and evolve for the future;
  • Develop our digital approach to drive improvement in high quality patient care and agile workforce opportunities; and
  • Ensure we maximise our data and business intelligence opportunities to drive improvement and transformation.

SWASFT celebrates multiple points of view and we believe diversity drives innovation. As such, we would particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector; women, disabled people and individuals from BAME and LGBTQ communities.
