National Voices vacancies
Independent Trustee vacancy
National Voices is the national coalition of health and care charities in England. We have a growing reputation for our work to strengthen the voices of patients, service-users, families and our member organisations.
A key part of our agenda is to champion effective action for those with the biggest burden of ill health, and for people who suffer exclusion and discrimination. We seek a trustee who can strengthen the capacity of our board of trustees to address this set of issues. You will increase the diversity of voices on our board and build our understanding of people whose needs are insufficiently met by health and care services.
You will have personal experience or professional expertise - or both – in relation to the needs of particular groups. These could include black and ethnic minorities, people with particular conditions or disabilities, younger or older people, or excluded communities.
Whatever your background, you should be an influential communicator, and able to work as part of a team to inform and shape National Voices’ agenda. Other relevant skills, for example in marketing, communications and business development, are desirable but not essential. You do not have to have served on the board of a national charity before.

To apply please send a covering letter and CV detailing your relevant background and experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or send by post to National Voices, First Floor Bride House, 18-20 Bride Lane, London EC4Y 8EE.
The deadline for applications is Monday 16 February 2015
Interviews will be held on Monday 2 March 2015 in central London.

We are seeking an external advisor to provide support around developing the most efficient methodology for the Wellbeing Our Way programme’s mapping on a consultancy basis.

To apply please send a CV detailing your relevant background and experience, alongside a proposal to email@example.com. Your proposal should include:
- an outline of your approach, ensuring that you meet the five requirements above
- proposed timescales (we would like the successful candidate to be available to begin the work as soon as possible)
- details around the expected fee
The deadline for applications is Friday 20 February.
Interviews will be held on Tuesday 3 March at National Voices’ offices in central London.
