*Closes 30th October*
Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm. With one in 15 of us now living with diabetes, we need that change for the next generation.
Diabetes UK are looking for two more trustees to join our Board of Trustees, one living in Northern Ireland and one living in Wales. As the leading charity for people living with diabetes in the UK, it’s important that we have Trustees from all four nations so that, at Board level, we recognise challenges and opportunities in the devolved nations.
We would also particularly like to encourage applications from those with a Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic background as we recognise the value that greater diversity brings to our Trustee Board and to our work.
We are looking for applicants who are passionate about our work, possess good independent judgement, will appreciate the collective responsibilities of the Trustee Board and who think strategically. Our Trustees are appointed for a three-year term and can be re-appointed for two further terms of up to three years each.
The expectation is that our Trustees prepare for and attend five Board meetings a year, plus an annual Board away day. Most will also sit on one of the Board’s sub-committees (during normal circumstances, these meetings take place at our London office).
Our Trustees are not remunerated but reasonable travel and/or subsistence expenses are reimbursed.
An information pack can be accessed here https://mycareer.diabetes.org.uk/jobs/job/Trustee-Voluntary-role/492 where you will find further details on how to apply, including contacts for an informal discussion.
The deadline for applications is Friday 30 October and we anticipate that (virtual) interviews will be held during the week starting 16 November.
