Trust Chair

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

"Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is a large organisation, employing over 18,000 wte staff, with a turnover in excess of £1.4B, operating in a complex regulatory framework, with accountability to the public.

The recruitment and succession planning for the Non-Executive Directors of our high performing Board has been supported by Notum, a free service to the public and third sector, supplying high caliber senior and Board Executives from the private sector. Each candidate, as part of their own personal development plan, is seeking to progress to Non-Executive Directorships. Through open competition we have appointed three excellent high-quality candidates from Notum."

Beatrice Fraenkel


Mersey Care NHS Trust

“I would like to thank you for the sensitive and helpful way you have worked with me to find two suitable non-executive directors for my Trust.  I sought very specific private sector skills, but equally important was the fit of personality to my Board. Your recommended candidates have proved successful in competitive interviews and I have already recommended your services to other Chairmen.”

Free resource supporting your recruitment.


Over 500 board appointments across the public and third sector.


Recognised executive talent from large corporates.


A vast network for shared learning.


At Notum Associates we understand that sourcing quality non-executive and trustee candidates can be difficult.


We run a leading Leadership & Development program that supports executives to find suitable non-executive and trustee roles within the public and third sectors.


We are fully funded by the companies engaged in the programme; as such, we are a free resource to any organisation in the public or third sectors wishing to recruit non-executives or trustees.


We do not operate like a recruiting agent and advertise roles; therefore, the candidates will follow whatever selection process you have in place, including recruitment through an agent.

Notum candidates are recognised executive and emerging talent, chosen by their organisation for external development. They all bring a breadth of general business skills along with many very specialist business skills such as finance, HR, risk management or marketing.

With over 450 candidates currently in non-executive and trustee positions, Notum candidates repeatedly prove successful in competitive recruitment and can make valuable assets to any board.
