WCHC value and promote diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. Our Trust believes that the best Boards are those that reflect the communities they serve.
WCHC particularly welcome applications from candidates from all under-represented minority groups (as per protected characteristics) but in particular candidates from local black and minority ethnic communities, who are currently under-represented in our non-executive roles.
The recruitment processes are conducted in accordance with the NHS Code of Governance to ensure that they are made on merit after a fair and open process so that the best people, from the widest possible pool of candidates, are appointed. The Trust will apply positive action where candidates achieve the same score and one candidate represents the minority group currently mostly under-represented at our Trust Board.
