Could you be our next trustee?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a new Trustee.

We are currently looking to complement our current Board of Trustees with people who have a passion for high quality healthcare and cancer care in particular. We need trustees to provide leadership and support as we fulfil our mission and vision. The voluntary role involves quarterly Trustee meetings plus additional time on an ad hoc basis to review documents and fulfill obligations.

We are specifically looking for applications from people with backgrounds and expertise in the following areas:

  • Healthcare
  • Legal
  • Business
  • Marketing
  • Expert by Experience

We are looking for candidates with a wealth of experience in the above areas who are passionate about helping Mesothelioma UK further its cause. The appointed Trustees will aid the current board. This may involve:

  • Scrutinising board papers
  • Leading discussions
  • Focusing on key issues
  • Providing guidance on new initiatives and long-term strategy
  • Other issues in which the trustee has special expertise

The current Trustees of Mesothelioma UK have all found their roles extremely rewarding and have been proud to be a significant part of bringing the charity to its current and strong position. Mesothelioma UK has become an essential part of the mesothelioma community in the UK, developing services essential to those affected by the disease. We believe that whilst what has been achieved so far is impressive, there is so much more that could be done. New trustees would be in a strong position to support and influence the ambitious plans that are currently under development to take Mesothelioma UK to a new level of impact.
