Could you be the next member of our dynamic and high performing Board?
Healthwatch Devon is the independent health and social care champion. We listen to what people like about services and what could be improved and help them to find the information they need. We are building a network of partnerships to reach out into the communities to get a broader range of views and escalate concerns. We encourage services to make positive changes and involve people in decisions that affect them.
We are currently looking for new Trustees to join our Healthwatch Devon Board. They set the strategic direction and overall governance of the organisation and they ensure our service is effective and accountable. Day-to-day operational decisions are delegated to the Chief Executive and the staff team.
Being a Trustee can be very rewarding and enjoyable offering an opportunity to serve the community whilst learning new skills. We are specifically interested in speaking to someone who can offer us expertise and knowledge in the areas of law or human resources.
We are an equal opportunities organisation and welcome applications from all suitably qualified people regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
