Scleroderma and Raynaud’s UK (SRUK) is the only charity dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by Scleroderma and Raynaud’s.

This is an exciting time to join the charity as we prepare to deliver on our five-year plan and budget with a clear ambition to achieve transformation and growth in terms of accelerating benefits to patients through research and support.

SRUK is committed to ensuring that patient voices are at the centre of our organisation, helping to shape our strategy, services and research programme. It is vital we understand the challenges and issues directly related to being a patient or carer. 

We are looking to recruit a new Patient Trustee to join the Board with the skills, knowledge and experience to support the Chief Executive and the senior management team in delivering a bold and ambitious strategy and to provide appropriate oversight of the governance of SRUK.

In addition to the key requirements of the trustee role, we are looking for a patient with Scleroderma and/or Raynaud’s or a carer. Previous Board experience or experience of representing the patient voice either within a healthcare or research setting Is desirable. For this trustee role, you must be able to provide insight from a broad perspective not solely based on your own experience.

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to SRUK’s mission and values and an understanding of the opportunities and challenges we face. We know a team needs different talents and we would like to hear about what makes you exceptional - your skills, your interests, your experience and your values.

SRUK recognises the importance of diversity and is seeking to attract the best talent and experience. SRUK is committed to increasing diversity across its Board. We encourage applications from all backgrounds.

Commitment:

Trustees will be expected to attend quarterly Board meetings, which are held during the day. You may also be required to participate in occasional conference calls for a maximum of one and a half hours.

Remuneration:

Trustees are not paid, but reasonable out of pocket expenses will be met.

To apply: Please send your CV and covering letter outlining your reasons for applying by the 22nd January 2021 to: Marlijn Wijkhuizen Marlijn@ep-uk.org
