Background and role focus

East Coast Community Healthcare CIC (ECCH) is a successful and growing social enterprise which delivers community healthcare across areas of Norfolk and Suffolk. We currently have a “Good” rating from the CQC and we have exciting plans for the future.

The Non-Executive Director (NED) role is a key leadership position for the strategic development of ECCH as a Social Enterprise. They will guide the evolution of our CIC, championing the strategic commitments and being a role model for a collaborative culture underpinned by our signature behaviours.

Our NEDs primarily work alongside the Chairperson, Chief Executive Officer, Staff Directors and Executive Directors as members of the ECCH Board and a primary focus is to advise on the development of strategy, oversee governance and ensure the performance of the organisation and its subsidiary companies. They also hold the organisation to its strategic commitments for quality (excelling), growing, people and partnerships, operating as a successful independent social enterprise with a reputation for integrity, strength and resilience.

As a staff-owned organisation, we are passionate about ensuring our employees and shareholders have a voice and involvement in setting the direction of the organisation. We have a strong commitment to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion and our Non-Executive Directors work closely with the Board to promote and facilitate the voice and inclusiveness of our staff, patients and the communities we serve.

What skills do we need?

We are particularly looking for candidates in any of the following fields and whose board level skills and experience will complement those of our team of Executive Directors.

  • Commercial
  • Transformational Change
  • Legal
  • Financial
  • Audit*
  • Clinical
  • Human Resources
  • Organisational Development

*One of the appointed NEDs will fulfil the role of Chair of Audit.

What can you bring?

Because we are an employee- owned company, we particularly value the voice and contribution our employees and workforce give to the organisation. You must be able to demonstrate what this means in practice and how you live our values of care, compassion and innovation.

We have a strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and particularly welcome applications from people with a range of diverse backgrounds that can help us role model this approach.

What can we offer you?

In addition to the remuneration package, you will have great opportunities for personal growth and development by working with us. 

Although the pandemic has meant a lot more of our colleagues are working mobile and remotely than before, as a community service organisation we have always advocated mobile working and our sites and services have remained open throughout, serving our communities. 

Staff working in our services always welcome a personal visit from our board members and leadership team to share their insight, knowledge and experiences.

If you have a passion for transforming lives and a strong track record of delivery at board level in a complex and/or multi-site organisation, we would love to hear from you.
