Trustee role for marketing specialist at Manchester children’s health charity
MedEquip4Kids improves the health of babies and children in the UK by providing equipment not available from limited NHS resources. Since its foundation in 1985 the charity has raised over £24 million for lifesaving medical equipment, play and distraction facilities in hospitals and specialised disability equipment. In 2017 we launched our Hummingbird Programme of workshops in schools to support young people’s mental health.
We are looking for an inspiring and dedicated individual to join our Board of Trustees, which consists of eight members with experience in medicine, finance and law. In order to enhance the range of skills on the board, we are seeking someone with recent experience and contacts in PR and/or digital marketing. A background or interest in children’s healthcare, especially young people’s mental health, would also be an advantage.
The successful candidate will attend six board meetings a year, where they will contribute to the overall governance of the organisation as well as offering specific guidance on developing the charity’s marketing and publicity strategy.
MedEquip4Kids is committed to ensuring equal opportunities for all. We particularly welcome applications from disabled, LGBTQ, and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, since these groups are currently under-represented on our Board of Trustees.
Salary: Unpaid (travel and other expenses will be reimbursed)
Hours: Six board meetings per year, usually on weekday lunchtimes, though timing may be flexible
Location: Central Manchester
