Multiple sclerosis-UK (MS-UK) is recruiting two new members to join our board of trustees. MS-UK is a small national charity supporting people affected by multiple sclerosis to live happier, healthier lives. We are particularly keen to hear from people with experience in digital service delivery, and marketing to assist our decision making and increase our impact. A personal connection to multiple sclerosis is desirable, however, more importantly, a connection to our vision, mission and values is crucial.
Our trustees work together to set the direction of the charity and ensure it is well managed. By joining the board, you too will be instrumental in the success of the charity and help make a real difference to the lives of people affected by MS. As well as reading our recruitment pack, you can also find out more about the role of a trustee on the Charity Commission website.
MS-UK is committed to being an equal, diverse and inclusive charity accessible for all. The aim is for our workforce, including our board of trustees, to be truly representative of all sections of society and our stakeholders, and for everyone to feel respected and able to give their best. We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and communities.
The board is made up of seven trustees with a wide range of lived and learned experiences.
Reasonable out of pocket expenses, such as travel, can be reclaimed.
The board usually holds four meetings per year. Three in Colchester, one in London. There is also a board and senior management team away day each year. Attendance can be arranged via Zoom if attending in person is not practicable.
Meetings are generally 3 hours and you will need to allow around 2 hours to read the papers for each meeting. There may be some occasional papers sent electronically for consideration and response. Other opportunities to get involved with the wider work of the board and charity are optional.
