Chair of the Board of Trustees

5th July 2017

The IBS Network is the UK's national charity for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), an illness that affects about 12 million people in the UK.

Its mission is to inform, advise and support people living with IBS and work alongside health services to facilitate IBS self-management. The IBS Network is expanding its activities and wishes to recruit a locally based Chair of Trustees to strengthen its current Board and determine the charity's strategy for growth. We are looking for a person with senior-level leadership skills and an enthusiasm to work alongside patients and health care professionals to make a difference to the lives of people with IBS. We welcome applicants who have worked at a senior management level in the third sector, public services or commercial organisations, some knowledge of health care and IBS would also be useful, but by no means essential. Trustee meetings are currently held bi-monthly in Sheffield. You would be expected to attend at least 75% of the meetings per year plus occasional events with key stakeholders. You will serve an initial term of three years and be eligible for re-appointment at this time. This is a voluntary position, but your expenses will be fully reimbursed.
