As you know in April 2013, Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin replaced the Local Involvement Network (LINk) taking on exciting new powers to help patients and the public to influence improvements in health and social care. A new social enterprise, Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin Ltd, has been established.
This has created a number of exciting volunteering opportunities to establish and develop the new organisation’s strategy and governance, while building on strong partnerships within the voluntary and statutory sector in Telford & Wrekin.
We are therefore looking to appoint the following roles:
Chair of the Board of Directors
As an experienced leader, you are passionate about improving health and social care services in Telford & Wrekin. You are likely to have excellent knowledge of the voluntary and statutory sectors and the national health and social care landscape.
This is a voluntary role, and you are likely to have extensive experience of either volunteering or working with volunteers. This is a key role in leading Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin and you will be part of the social enterprise (a company limited by guarantee).
This is fantastic opportunity to help influence change and improvements in Telford & Wrekin.
Board of Directors
You will ideally have experience of a similar role, and have excellent knowledge of the voluntary and statutory sectors and the national health and social care landscape. This is a voluntary role and you will be part of Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin, a company limited by guarantee, and have a central role in directing and controlling the work of the organisation.
The board will be made up of up to 8 directors.
To apply for any of these positions, candidates must submit a CV and supporting statement.
