We are looking for new Board members to add their skills and perspectives to those of the current Directors.

We would like them to share a commitment to our mission and span a broad range of professional qualifications and leadership experience.

You would need to commit between 8 and 12 hours each month to Healthwatch Bucks. Including participation in quarterly meetings in public at different locations across the county.  You would also be expected to participate in one or more of the Board committees or working groups.

Together with your colleagues on the Board, you would be responsible for the overall governance of Healthwatch Bucks. In particular, setting the strategic direction and making sure that the organisation is well run.

Our Board members should have a good grasp of local issues surrounding health and social care. Therefore, they should preferably live or work in Buckinghamshire. We want our Board to reflect the diversity of our county and the many different communities which live and work here.

We are looking for team players who are excellent communicators with proven problem-solving and interpersonal skills.

    So, you want to recruit middle-class professionals with extensive previous experience? Doesn’t sound very inclusive or “diverse” to me.

      Thank you for your feedback. We genuinely want to recruit a diverse range of Directors to our Board; who bring new and different perspectives and experiences to our organisation. We’re sorry if you feel this does not come across in our advert and would like the opportunity to discuss this with you.
      Please get in touch at zoe@healthwatchbucks.co.uk
