The Royal College of Pathologists seeks Lay Trustee
The Royal College of Pathologists has a key role in the professional aspects of pathology in the development and delivery of healthcare. Pathology is the science at the heart of modern medicine, vital for the diagnosis and clinical management of disease. We are seeking to recruit a lay trustee to our board to replace one of the 2 lay trustees who is demitting office. Trustees as a whole have a responsibility for ensuring that the College complies with its governing documents and charity law as well as other relevant legislation and regulations. The College has a lay governance group and the new lay trustee will be expected to take on the role of vice chair of that group.
The trustee board meets 5 times per year, and the lay governance group meets twice a year, all on a weekday. In addition trustees will also need from time to time to: attend dinners / events on behalf of the College; be available by email or occasionally by telephone between face to face meetings for advice and to make decisions by circulation; and to be available for other ad hoc requirements.
Our trustees are unremunerated, but we pay travel and other related expenses. The closing date for applications is 5pm on Wednesday 10 April, with interviews for shortlisted candidates being held in the afternoon of 25th April.
A role description, person specification and application form is available on the College’s website.
