Job description

Trustee – unremunerated voluntary role 

The National Osteoporosis Society wants a brighter future for people affected by osteoporosis and fragility fractures.  We are the only UK-wide charity dedicated to ending the pain and suffering caused by osteoporosis.    

We are looking to appoint two trustees who have substantial senior business/board level and general management experience.  Applicants should have the ability to grasp and contribute to strategic thinking and development and work collaboratively with others to help the charity to achieve its aims. 

 There are 6 full-day Board meetings held annually either in London or at the charity’s headquarters in Camerton, near Bath. There will be pre-reading meeting papers and general information exchange which require trustees to respond throughout the year.   

In addition, Trustees are required to sit on at least one sub-committee of the Board and/or serve on one short-life working group (3-4 meetings per year).    

Trustees are required to be able to commit sufficient time to attend these meetings and possibly support members of the Executive Team providing expertise and challenge when appropriate.

 This is an unremunerated role although travel expenses will be paid in accordance with our policy.

 To apply, applicants should provide a comprehensive CV, including details of relevant experience and achievements. This should be supplemented by a supporting statement in a cover letter, demonstrating how your skills and experience meet the person specification.

Closing date: 7th August 2018
