Job Description

About the Organisation

Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult, our nurses work alongside people with dementia and their families: giving them the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere.

About the Role

We currently seek to recruit three trustees with commitment to the vision and values of Dementia UK, integrity, strategic vision, good independent judgement and a willingness to contribute to our work with enthusiasm.

In addition we are particularly keen to meet potential trustees who have one of the following skill sets:

  • Experience and understanding of the clinical aspects of dementia care and policy at a senior level.  
  • The professional knowledge to strengthen the Board’s ability to meet the organisational and people challenges of managing an increasing and geographically spread clinical workforce.
  • The contacts, networks and commitment to support and help lead the Charity’s efforts in sourcing and maintaining high-level individual  and corporate donations.

Trustees normally meet in London and meetings are held at least eight times per year. Trustees are not remunerated but reasonable expenses are paid.

As a trustee of a rapidly growing, national-based charity, new trustees will have the opportunity to develop and influence the strategic direction of the charity, whilst also offering leadership and direction to the charity's Executive Team.

This is an exciting opportunity for a trustee to develop their skill sets whilst also developing the reputation and wellbeing of a national-based charity.

Person Specification

The essential attributes needed are:

  • Commitment to the Charity, its vision and values
  • Understanding of both charity governance and business practices
  • Integrity, strategic vision, good independent judgement and a willingness to contribute

 Specific areas of expertise/experience sought are in:

  • Clinical aspects of dementia care and policy at a senior level 
  • Organisational development and people management, preferably but not exclusively in a clinical environment
  • The third vacancy is for an individual who has, in addition to the other attributes, the contacts, networks and commitment to support and help lead the Charity’s efforts in sourcing and maintaining high-value individual and corporate donations.

Deadline for applications is 07 Mar 2019
