We will pay for a meal out at Christmas and bring you to whole service events twice a year so that you can develop peer relationships and contribute to the company.

The role

We are seeking two Non-Executive Directors to join the FPM Board of Directors as we endeavour to build a long term and sustainable employee owned, not for profit business. Your values should accord with those of the Company as we seek to improve outcomes for young people and families who may be on the edge of public care or custody.

Expectation: The minimum requirement will be on average one day per month to attend meetings, some may be held remotely, via MS Teams/Zoom with attendance at our Huntingdon Office at least 6 times a year for our bi-monthly board meetings, with approximately a further 1-2 days of attendance at board workshops and whole event Away Days.


Who they’re looking for

We are seeking two new members to work with, and bring development knowledge to, our current experienced Board and highly skilled executives. The ideal candidate would have in particular senior &/or board level knowledge and expertise in any of the following areas: contract management, marketing, strategy, legal, technology and/or HR.

Family Psychology Mutual believe having a diverse Board is vital to our ongoing success and we particularly welcome applications from underrepresented groups.

Experience in the health and social care sector is desirable, however, we welcome applications from those with relevant experience and/or qualifications outside of the sector and from those with particular strong communication and negotiation skills and the ability to inspire and engage. We especially welcome anyone with experience of working in an employee owned organisation.
