Lay Member – Audit and Conflicts of Interest

NHS Leeds CCG are looking to recruit a new Lay Member with particular responsibility for Audit and Conflicts of Interest.

Thank you for your interest in joining NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Governing Body as a Lay Member.

NHS Leeds CCG is one of the largest CCGs in the country, covering a population of around 870,000 people living in the city, both in the affluent neighbourhoods and in some of the poorest. Tackling health inequalities and unwanted variations in the quality of care is one of our main challenges and we are committed to working with a wide range of partners from across the health and care sector to achieve our ambition of establishing Leeds as a healthy and caring city for people of all ages, where people who are the poorest, improve their health the fastest.

In June 2020, Leeds CCG launched the ‘Shaping our Future’ programme of work to establish our CCG’s future operating model. The plans and case for change were prepared before the onset of the COVID-19 crisis but we have already undertaken the necessary work to ensure that we learn lessons from our response to the crisis and believe that some of the possible positive consequences of the crisis are in line with the direction of travel set out in our future operating model plan. We plan to build upon our learning and take opportunities into the implementation of our newly proposed operating model, strengthening the case for change and building on the appetite for innovation and change across Leeds.

To help us on the next stage of this journey, we are looking to appoint a new Lay Member with particular responsibility for Audit and Conflicts of Interest. S/he will share responsibility as part of the Governing Body team for ensuring that the CCG exercises its functions effectively, efficiently, economically and with good governance, particularly in matters relating to audit, remuneration and managing conflicts of interest.

While a formal finance qualification is not necessary, we are looking for someone with significant Board-level experience of financial management and the skills and ability to make a meaningful contribution within an open, transparent and supportive team; strong relationship-building and communication skills will also be essential.

NHS Leeds CCG serves a diverse community and we are committed to growing and maintaining a culture of inclusion across our own organisation; we are working to increase diversity in all our management teams and we particularly welcome applications from people from under-represented groups.
