Who we are
The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) is a medical membership charity focussed on supporting its members to provide the best care and achieve the best outcomes for patients with gastrointestinal and liver diseases.
Founded in 1937, the BSG is one of the UK’s largest specialty societies, holding representation within the British Royal Colleges, health service and Government bodies, as well as at World and European level. It has over three thousand members drawn from the ranks of physicians, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, scientists, nurses, dietitians and others interested in the field.
The Board of Trustees are responsible for top-level governance, ensuring that key decisions made are in both the public, and BSG’s best interests. The Board works closely with the Executive Committee and the Council, both comprised of medical professionals, who develop strategy and input to medical governance.
As a registered Trustee with the Charity Commission, you will have the opportunity to make a real impact through your contribution to the strategic direction and priorities of the BSG. You’ll achieve this through your attendance at Trustee Board meetings and Trustee Sub-Committee meetings, your liaison with BSG Executive, BSG Council and BSG Chief Executive, and your valuable insight and advice. As such, the BSG is looking to see that you have a thorough understanding of the role of a Trustee in a Charity and in the development of small organisations.
This is a three-year appointment term with the opportunity to renew. It is an un-remunerated post – reasonable expenses incurred through the role will be reimbursed.
Please see the supporting documents section for the full job description. Further information about the BSG is available on our website. An informal discussion with the President or other Trustees is welcomed.
To apply: please provide a brief CV, and a covering letter setting out your experience and interest in the role to [email protected]
Closing Date: Midnight, Sunday 30 May 2021
Interview Date: Monday 21 June 2021 in London
