Job Description

St John of God Hospitaller Services (SJOG)
Role: Trustees
Salary: Unremunerated but reasonable expenses will be paid
Location: Darlington

SJOG exists to meet unmet need in a changing society. We are ambitious to fulfil the potential of people and give them the skills and the support to gain control of their own lives. We don’t have one standard approach but creatively provide help and support to people in the way they want. We continue to be inspired by the story of our founder, Saint John of God, who left us a legacy of providing value-based service to those most in need.

With a turnover of £15m, we are a national charity with 600 staff working across the country, working with people with learning disabilities, complex physical impairments, and people who are homeless including victims of trafficking. We’re part of an international organisation that touches the lives of a million people every day.

SJOG is undergoing transformation. In recent years we have faced financial challenges, like other social care organisations, but with a new Chief Executive and leadership team we are now ready to shape our future and develop new ways of delivering on our purpose.

We have a dedicated board, which we are now looking to strengthen with two Trustees who can support and stretch the delivery of our services and who will support and challenge the strategic development of the organisation. In particular, we are looking for individuals with the following experience: senior strategic leadership experience, strong business/commercial acumen (gained in business, charities or the public sector) and expertise in quality and safeguarding within health or social care. We are looking for strategic individuals, with independent judgement and the ability to think creatively, who share our values of hospitality, compassion, justice, respect and trust.

SJOG is fully committed to equality of opportunity and diversity to ensure that we reflect the full breadth of the people we aim to support. We warmly welcome applications from all suitably-qualified candidates.
