Job Description

Could you use your skills and experience to make a difference leading a fantastic small health charity? Pharmacy Research UK (PRUK) is the principal research charity supporting pharmacists and pharmacy. We fund research projects and individual bursaries, working to improve research skills across the pharmacy sector, to provide an evidence-base to improve the practice of pharmacy, to highlight the vital role of pharmacy in our health services and ultimately to improve public health. 

We are looking to recruit two new trustees to join our board at an exciting time for the charity as we look to grow following the appointment of our first permanent chief executive. Since its inception in 2012 PRUK has provided nearly £2million worth of research funding into this hugely important and often under-researched area of work. 

Anyone can be a trustee and we welcome all applications to join our board. We always seek to maintain a good balance of skills and experiences on the board and so are particularly interested to receive applications from people with understanding of finance and financial management, charity governance, and people with patient involvement experience. We also want to ensure that our board is representative of the community we serve and so encourage applications from female candidates and candidates from black and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. 

For more information about the role, please see: job description and person specification.

If you need more information about the role, or want an informal discussion, you can contact our chief executive, Guy Parckar, on or by phone on 07967 145 755.
