Appointment Details

Sue Ryder

Job Title: Trustee (Scotland)

Job Reference:UAHAVB

Closing Date: Thursday 20 Aug 2020

Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or a neurological condition – we’re there when it matters. Our doctors, nurses and carers give people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can.

We refreshed our strategy in 2018, setting a clear ambition for the next five years, and have developed a very vibrant and well-structured workstream plan. In the current context, we recognise that some of these ambitious targets will need to be reassessed, ensuring we are responsive to the changing environment around our Covid-19 response. We are continuously reviewing our way forward to ensure that we are acting in the best interests of the people we support, their families and our staff, focused on creating a successful and sustainable future for the organisation

We are looking to add to our Trustee Council and, given our flagship neurological centre in Aberdeenshire, currently seek a senior leader who is based in, and has experience working with senior stakeholders, in Scotland. Experience of operating in systems of considerable complexity and of health and social care in Scotland would also be desirable.

The incoming Trustee will share our deep commitment to Sue Ryder’s mission and vision.

Reflecting the diverse communities that we are proud to serve, Sue Ryder is very much committed to widening the diversity of its leadership and board. We actively and warmly encourage applications from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.
