Three Advisory Board Members

Greenwich Hospital
Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

Greenwich Hospital has been providing support to serving and former serving Royal Navy and Royal Marine personnel and their families for over 325 years. Their wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, as we aim to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of those in need of support. Our income comes from our quoted investment and commercial property portfolio and working in partnership with the Royal Navy, charities, and others, last year we spent nearly £6m in grants and other charitable activity in areas ranging from education and housing to family support, health and well-being, employability, and crisis support. We also fund educational bursaries and support former serving personnel through our sheltered housing schemes.


Greenwich Hospital is looking to appoint three new Advisory Board members at a crucial and exciting time in our development. It is an ambition to transform the organisation and to ensure it reflects the diversity of those we support, and we are actively looking to broaden the diversity of the Board with these appointments. We are looking for leaders within their field to provide expert guidance and advice across all aspects of our work and are specifically seeking candidates who bring considerable senior level experience within the education, legal, and Royal Navy family and charity sectors for these advisory roles. 

We are looking to increase our impact by collaborating across the Royal Navy family and work is in progress to develop our charity and investment strategies to this end. Working with the Ministry of Defence team, we are planning a wholesale change of legal structure, to enable us to be fully in line with best practice. To do this requires primary legislation; but we are determined that the Greenwich Hospital of the future is constituted in such a way to ensure that the needs of our beneficiaries are front and centre and all we do is impact driven. 

Our meetings are held in Portsmouth, London and across the UK and you will gain some truly unique insights into our history and culture and will get to join a group of highly engaged and proactive professionals willing to give their time and expertise to supporting Greenwich Hospital with its aims. 

If this is a vision which interests you, please do read on. We look forward to hearing from you.
