As one of three new trustees you will be joining a deeply committed Board with a strong sense of purpose. This is however, also a time of change when we are also recruiting a new Chair of Trustees, as Lord Alex Carlile reaches the end of his second term in office. At this time of transition, this is an opportune moment for us to strengthen our non-executive team and we have clearly identified key skills and experiences that would be particularly valuable to our Board. Your skills and expertise will add significant support to our governance and to our Executive team within an ever changing and challenging health and care policy landscape.
In this round of recruitment we are particularly looking for people who bring one or more of the following: clinical or medical experience, preferably in mental health or addiction services; leadership experience in the health and care sector and accountancy skills. Above all else you will share our values and our commitment to ensuring that everyone who needs support for issues with drugs, alcohol and their mental health, is able to access it. Although not essential, lived experience of some of the issues surrounding this agenda would be an advantage.
We are actively committed to increasing the diversity of our teams and welcome applications from all sectors and backgrounds. If, having considered this brief, you believe you have the skills and qualities we are looking for, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
