Job description

Clinical Trustees x 2

North West London

Approximately 7 days a year

Voluntary unpaid roles where, for giving up your valuable time for a few days a year, you’ll help influence the lives of young people, to make them better equipped for life in general.

Brandon Centre is a registered charity that provides young people aged under 25 with access to free and confidential specialist support around their emotional, mental health and sexual health needs. Founded in 1968, the roots of Brandon Centre have inherently been centred around Psychotherapy and Sexual Health for young people. We predominately work with young people in Camden, Islington and other London boroughs and our mission is to expand our network to support even more young people who we hope will truly benefit from our services.

Brandon Centre already has an enviable reputation for the services we provide and we are now in a position to recruit additional experts in their field to join our Board. We are looking for two Clinical Trustees, ideally based within the areas we cover, to help us build on our achievements of the last 50+ years. This is an extremely exciting time to be joining Brandon Centre with an enterprising CEO who was appointed one year ago, working alongside experienced and inspiring Trustees.

As a Trustee with a clinical bias (maybe through your current work as a GP, Psychologist, Nurse, with knowledge in community & primary care, mental health and sexual health or similar) this is a new position on the Board of Trustees as we continue our mission to support even more young people. It is vital that we recruit people with relevant and up-to-date clinical expertise, with an inspiring, energising, collaborative approach and able to support and challenge in equal measure.

Brandon Centre Trustees meet six times a year and, where possible, also support the Centre between meetings. The Board meets once a year for an away day to reflect and help the Chief Executive to plan for the years ahead. Accordingly, first and foremost, you must be willing to commit to attending these meetings.

If, like us, you are a firm believer in ensuring our young people receive the best support, counselling and psychotherapy to allow them to lead better lives, we would love to hear from you.
