Location: London and Various
Date Posted: 02/12/2019
Closing Date: 08/01/2020
Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or a neurological condition – we’re there when it matters. Our doctors, nurses and carers give people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can.
Halfway through an ambitious five year strategic plan, we have embarked on significant expansion and development of end-of-life care services, and the repositioning and growth of our neurological services. We are developing a new state-of-the-art neurological care centre in Preston to open in 2020 and a new specialist care centre in Aberdeen. We have also launched a cultural programme to ensure all our staff and volunteers are empowered, mobilised and fulfilled by their experience of being part of Sue Ryder and able to contribute effectively.
We are looking to add to our Trustee Council and currently seek senior individuals with board level experience, one of whom will bring expertise of commercial property, leasing and development. The other Trustee will be a senior health leader who will bring a deep and strategic understanding of the health system in the UK, how care is commissioned as well as knowledge of the wider health policy environment.
New Trustees will be of an exceptional calibre, will bring extensive experience, strong insight and a deep commitment to Sue Ryder’s mission and vision.
Reflecting the diverse communities that we are proud to serve, Sue Ryder is very much committed to widening the diversity of its leadership and board. We actively and warmly encourage applications therefore from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.
