Top job! Trustee

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Musselburgh
  • Closing 18th October 2019

Enriching the lived experience of children and young people with chronic conditions – through group art therapy and one-to-one art psychotherapy treatment in hospitals – is the core purpose of Teapot Trust.

Approaching its tenth anniversary in 2020, the charity has 21 services in 11 partner hospitals throughout the UK and retains 17 art therapists and a staff team of 6.

Currently embarking on an exciting phase of regrowth, Teapot Trust is seeking three new trustees with expertise in 1) legal/regulatory/governance; 2) social enterprise; 3) clinical paediatrics (e.g. Rheumatology, Diabetes). If you believe you have the appropriate skills and experience to add value, we look forward to hearing from you.

In line with OSCR’s guidance, trustees, who exercise oversight in a non-executive capacity, hold collective responsibility for the charity’s strategic direction, managing risk, and ensuring legal and regulatory compliance.

The work will be both purposeful and fulfilling. An excellent induction package is offered, including visits to partner hospitals to see the impact of the charity’s art therapy.
