Non-Executive Director





Thank you for your interest in joining our Board.   I hope the information here helps you learn more about our organisation, this important Non-Executive Director role, our achievements, challenges, ambitions, and values.

This is an exciting time to join Pennine Care. You would be joining at the point in our journey where we have a refreshed strategy focused on providing outstanding care, along with creating an inclusive culture and strengthening our roots with our diverse communities.  At the forefront of our approach is our desire to tackle discrimination in all its forms.

We want to make a real difference to people who experience mental health difficulties, who have learning disabilities or autism by providing outstanding care both in hospital and in the community across five boroughs of Greater Manchester – Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport and Tameside and in Glossop in Derbyshire.

We have an important role as a partner in the Greater Manchester Integrated Care System; raising the profile and importance of mental health, learning disability and autism services, reducing stigma, and supporting our people – staff, service users and carers – to maximise their potential.

We want to appoint a Non-Executive Director (NED) to our Board of Directors to bring an independent perspective, in addition to complementary skills and experience. We are particularly interested in in hearing from people who are enterprise leaders in the voluntary or community sector and bring a deep understanding of the needs and experiences of our diverse communities.

We are looking for an innovative leader who can add value in an environment with significant organisational and system complexity and challenge. Focused on high quality services, our Non-Executive Directors bring our values to life, promote the highest standards of integrity and corporate governance, and ensure that quality, finance, and operational requirements are held in balance.

For this role we want to attract candidates who understand what it means to be truly inclusive and who have empathy for the experience of our service users and carers; keeping them at the heart of our decision making. We are also looking for someone who can engage well with our dedicated staff, governors and members.

I do encourage you to attend our virtual open event on 4.30 pm Tuesday 18 July 2023, read more on this site and contact our advisors at GatenbySanderson; Isha Hussain, Emily Smith or Emma Pickup at GatenbySanderson on 07586705358 to discuss your interest in the role further.

I look forward to meeting you during the process.

Best wishes


Evelyn Asante-Mensah
Chair of Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust
