|Job Title:||Independent Specialist|
|Contact Name:||Ms Karin Pappenheim|
|Job Published:||January 03, 2020 13:51|
The Association recognises the contribution of independent specialists to its governance and across our different workstreams, and has recruited lay members with specialist skills and knowledge onto its committees and Board in recent years.
This is a voluntary role (unremunerated except for expenses) and offers an opportunity to contribute to the strategic development and environmental and sustainability strategy of a leading medical organisation dedicated to promoting patient safety and quality of care in this country and worldwide.
Purpose of the role
Independent specialists bring professional expertise, judgment and balance which may not be available among the elected Directors and Trustees. Their principal assets will be their independence, different perspectives, detachment and the provision of an external view. It is envisaged that the new independent specialist will add value not only to the Environment and Sustainability Committee’s work but in the organisation as a whole e.g. by providing a sounding board for senior managers. There may be opportunities to become involved more widely, depending on the lay member’s individual preferences and time.
Responsible to: Chair of the Environment & Sustainability Committee
§ Chair of the Environment & Sustainability Committee
§ All Officers and committee members
§ Chief Executive Officer and Senior Management
§ Other staff as required
In addition, independent specialists may, from time to time, interact with external organisations as a representative of the Association.
This is a voluntary role (unremunerated except for expenses) and offers an opportunity to contribute to the strategic development, funding decisions and governance of the research and grant aims of a leading medical organisation dedicated to promoting patient safety and quality of care in this country and worldwide.
The independent specialist will be a co-opted member of the Environment and Sustainability Committee.
Travel and other reasonable expenses will be paid in line with the Association’s expenses policy.
