Job Description

We’re on a mission to provide more mental health support to more people in Sussex – can you help to lead our development as a Board member?

Sussex Oakleaf is a leading not-for-profit organisation working to extend mental, physical and social wellbeing, through recovery-based support in housing and specialist support services.  

We are client focused and work in partnership with people to design and deliver personalised support, independent living, access to volunteering, employment and education.

It’s a great time to join our Board, as we embark on ambitious plans to grow and extend our services and reach into communities. We are keen to recruit to enhance the skills and capabilities of our highly committed Board.

If you’re passionate about improving mental health, can bring a strategic focus, business skills and social empowerment to the table, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

We are especially keen to meet people who have skills and experience in:

  • Clinical health and social care
  • Social Enterprise or start ups
  • Finance and accountancy
  • Communications and marketing

You will ideally be able to commit to six Board meetings per year, working groups and be able to support the Executive team in advisory capacity.

This is a voluntary role, with reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. Our meetings take place mainly in Mid Sussex but with occasional travel to other locations in the county.

Closing time / date: 12 noon on 21st June 2018

Interview date: 20th July 2018
