Job Description

The British Pharmacological Society is a charity with a mission to promote and advance the whole spectrum of pharmacology. The Society leads the way in the research and application of pharmacology around the world. Connecting over 4,000 members from more than 60 countries, it is a global community at the heart of pharmacology.

In the last 8 years, the Society has grown substantially in performance and impact. Membership has risen by over 20%, while diversification of the Society’s business portfolio has seen annual revenues also grow, providing stability to the organisation and supporting the delivery of a huge range of charitable activities.

In 2018, the Society launched a new five-year strategy. This is aimed at establishing the Society as an influential and proactive force for championing research, education, training and policy issues in pharmacology and clinical pharmacology.

The Society is seeking a Non-Executive Director with a legal background for its subsidiary company BPS Assessment Limited. Non-executive Directors provide oversight of strategic leadership and effective governance of the organisation, enabling it to support the interests of its members, and ensuring it meets its aims and ambitions.

In alignment with our vision for equality, diversity and inclusion in pharmacology, the Society seeks to represent, and be inclusive of people from a wide variety of backgrounds across the communities we serve. The Society encourages applications from all suitable candidates, especially women, gender minorities and those from racialised minority groups.

Commitment: Quarterly meetings for BPSA Board are currently being held virtually. However, travel expenses in line with the Society’s expense policy will be paid for face-to-face meetings.
