We are the world’s leading member-owned, not-for-profit organisation protecting the careers, reputations and financial security of doctors, dentists, healthcare professionals and organisations around the world. Founded in 1892, we take pride in the vital part we play within healthcare delivery by providing expert advice and support to more than 300,000 members worldwide.
We are seeking a Non-Executive Director to join our Council (which is the Board of Directors of MPS and responsible for the running of MPS and its long-term success) to provide challenge and support to the Executive team, ensuring that MPS continues to thrive long into the future providing expert advice and support that our members trust and value.
As a Council member you are the voice of our members and are integral to our success by helping to shape and drive our ambitious business strategy. You will understand the complexities of working in the healthcare profession, ideally on a global scale.
You will be required to demonstrate high levels of integrity and role model outstanding standards of quality, probity and governance. Your ability to listen and constructively challenge in a board environment, to engage with other Non-Executive Directors and our Executive team will be critical in delivering our financial and strategic business objectives that benefit members.
Medical Protection Society is committed to creating a diverse Board that reflects the demographics of the members we serve. Experience of the private health care market would be beneficial, but not essential. Some previous governance experience would also be beneficial.
The successful applicant will join the Medical sub-committee then later be invited to join other sub-committees, depending on experience and time commitments. During the 8-year tenure the successful applicant may wish to be considered for roles such as Chair of a Sub-Committee or ultimately, Chair of Council.
Approximate annual commitment will be around 18 days a year for Council and Sub-Committee meetings. Time will also be required to prepare for meetings and attend professional development. Meetings are currently held on-line although in the future will be mainly held in central London and on occasion in our Leeds office.
