Board Member and Chair of Clinical Governance Committee
17 days ago
Phoenix Futures is dedicated to helping individuals, families and communities recover from drug and alcohol problems. We believe in being the best, our relentless optimism and energy for overcoming dependency motivates people with substance misuse to realise their own recovery. We know families, friends and carers need hope, care and guidance just as much as their loved ones.
We are passionate about recovery and constantly strive to learn and innovate, to challenge ourselves, to adapt and to work together with others who can bring valuable expertise. Over the last fifty years we have grown from a single pioneering residential service to a national organisation with 50 services across working in psychosocial provision across community, prison and residential settings delivering abstinence based, abstinence oriented and harm reduction approaches.
The current Chair of the Clinical Governance Committee will complete their term of office later this year and thus we now seek their successor. We seek someone with clinical experience, preferably within substance misuse, an understanding of Care Quality Commission and/or Clinical regulatory expectations.
You will be confident communicator able to lead the Clinical Governance Committee and work effectively with other trustees, have a good understanding of Charity governance and are able to develop an effective working relationship with the CEO. You will also work with the other senior trustees – Chair and Vice Chair of the Board and the other subcommittee Chairs on specific strategic issues.
All our board meetings are currently held virtually, and you should expect to dedicate roughly nine half days per year, covering board, committee, and strategy meetings.
We welcome both experienced trustees and those looking to take on their first trusteeship, and we want to welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to further diversify the Board.
For more than 50 years we have demonstrated our passion and commitment to support people to achieve long term recovery. Come join us and be part of our journey!
