SignHealth is a national charity committed to achieving better access to and equality of health provision within the UK for Deaf people. We provide services to Deaf people experiencing mental health problems and/or complex needs. The charity works in the fields of supported living, counselling, advocacy, outreach and health promotion. We are also proud that more than half our employees are Deaf.
We are currently looking to expand our Board of Trustees to support the work that our Charity does. We are looking for some great people who can bring their skills and experience to help us during a time of growth in the coming few years. Could you help set the strategic direction of the charity? Do you have experience that you think the board could benefit from? This is a great opportunity to make a real difference.
This is also an opportunity to progress your own career development, help you to meet people in other fields and experience how a company and charity runs. This is a role where you can help to shape the future of the Charity, and make sure that we are doing the right things for Deaf people.
We are particularly looking for people with the following experience:
- Financial management and accountancy
- Operational experience in social care, psychological therapy or domestic abuse
- Charity governance and management
- Income generation and commercial growth
- Marketing and communications
