CLIC Sargent is the UK’s largest children and young people’s cancer charity. We reach about 70% of children and young people with cancer in the UK and provide a mass of essential help, advice and financial support. But there are still over 1,000 young people, wrestling with the devastating impact of cancer, who don’t even know we exist. Our fabulous partners at Morrisons are funding us to sort that out and digital is the way.
We are changing our systems, services, spending profile and culture to reach more young people through digital routes, to ensure the services we deliver are totally relevant to them and that we remain cutting edge for donors and our users alike. And we are doing it quickly.
Our Board of Trustees are as excited as the rest of the organisation about the changes, but also want to ensure that this is being done well and accountably. So we are delighted to be appointing a new Trustee, with digital expertise, to support the Board, the CEO and the Executive Directors to drive through this burning desire to reach every child and young person with cancer in the UK before 2020.
Who we're looking for
We are looking for someone with significant strategic level experience of either directly delivering big, complex digital change programmes, or of working at a senior level in digital marketing or social media. The sector doesn’t matter but you must be passionate about helping children and young people with cancer across the UK.
Childhood cancer doesn’t discriminate and neither do we. Our Board of Trustees is currently not diverse enough, and needs to represent the people that we support. So we would love to hear from people from all types of backgrounds, and particularly from backgrounds that are under-represented.
The commitment is four full-day board meetings and four half-day sub-committee meetings a year.
If you are up for joining our fight, take a look at the trustee recruitment pack. To apply, send over your CV with a covering note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch after the closing date – Friday 21 September 2018. Interviews are scheduled for Friday 12 October 2018.
