As with all Trust Leaders, the Non-Executive Director must develop and encourage an open culture of equal opportunities and respect and recognise the value of diversity.

We strive to have a workforce that is representative of the community we serve and have a Board that is representative of the workforce. We are of the view that originality of thought, skill set and characteristic will benefit the strategy and decision-making of DCHS.

Therefore, applications from all areas of the community who meet the specific criteria are encouraged, regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage/civil partnerships.
