Trustee vacancy

AfPP has an exciting opportunity for two Trustees (one elected and one non-elected) to play pivotal roles in the leadership and governance of the charity by setting the future strategy and assuring the quality and focus of services to our members.

Becoming a Trustee is a great challenge that brings with it the opportunity to apply the skills and experience you have gained to a new environment. Working as part of the AfPP Board can be hugely satisfying and rewarding but it will challenge you and your colleagues. As a Trustee of AfPP you can help to improve patient care and change the environment within which our members work. Being involved with AfPP at a very different level will provide you with opportunities to take brave steps to broaden your horizons.

You will be joining a group of dedicated colleagues who contribute positively to Board discussions including setting policy, budgets, and goals, evaluating performance against agreed targets, keeping abreast of and meeting our legal, governance and quality standards.
