Tell Us North Chair of Board (voluntary role)

We are looking to strengthen our Board of Directors who lead in the growth and development of the organisation and the Chair will lead in this work. Board Directors need to be highly motivated, publicly-aware and determined to improve health and wellbeing throughout communities.

The successful candidate will help to ensure that Tell Us North’s ambitious growth plans are realised, ensure excellent governance arrangements and, working with the Chairs of the Healthwatch Newcastle and Healthwatch Gateshead Committees, oversee the successful delivery of these two high profile Healthwatch contracts.

The role will require a time commitment of between two to three days per month (depending upon the activity and the timing of meetings) including attendance at quarterly Board meetings. However, because this role is voluntary we recognise the importance of offering flexibility as much as possible.

The Board of Directors is currently not remunerated financially, other than reimbursement of expenses. However, in addition to serving the local community, Tell Us North Directors do benefit from the following:

  • Regarded as holding an influential and respected position among health and social care professionals.
  • Invitation to events, including keynote speeches by some of the most respected voices within the community, health and social care sectors.
  • Invitation to annual community celebration events.

For more information contact Kate Beattie on 0191 3385720 or email info@healthwatchnewcastle.org.uk to arrange a discussion with Cynthia Atkin, TUN Interim Chief Executive.

If you wish to play a leading role in shaping the future of this ambitious organisation and the local health and social care landscape, we would be delighted to hear from you.

The closing date for applications is Monday 17 August 2020.
