Who we are
Founded in 1942, Arthritis Action is the UK charity offering an integrated self-management approach, which helps address the physical and mental health symptoms of living with arthritis. Arthritis is the most prevalent long-term health condition in the UK with over 10 million people living with the condition. It is the leading cause of pain and disability. Our vision is for people to live active lives, free from the impact of arthritis.
Our Board of Trustees has a wide-range of skills covering business and finance, rheumatology nursing, sociology, IT and HR. Some of our Trustees are also CEOs of other charitable and membership organisations which provides us with an even broader range of skills. It is a committed and friendly board, and the Trustees work well together.
We are now looking for people to join the Board who have complementary skills to those of the present Trustees and who have the time, vision and enthusiasm to help us make the most of this tremendous opportunity to continue with the development of the charity. In addition to applicants with professional experience in the NHS or in other musculoskeletal charities, we are keen to hear from people with finance experience, those who have been involved with fundraising & income generation, public policy, strategic planning and HR.
The diversity of Arthritis Action’s Board of Trustees reflects the Arthritis Action membership as a whole. We aim to offer equal opportunities for all irrespective of age, disability, gender identity, marriage or civil partnership status, parental status, race, religion and belief, sex or sexual orientation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community, and we value differences.
If you are ready for this exciting challenge and you have the experience, skills and passion to work with us to achieve our goals, we would be delighted to receive an application from you.
