Can you help us achieve our mission for nursing and midwifery across the UK and globally?

We are recruiting up to two new trustees to join our board, providing leadership and helping shape the future of the Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF). We’re looking for a range of governance skills and experience relevant to our strategic objectives. In particular, we are seeking two candidates with experience in 1) finance and 2) fundraising.

As a trustee board member, you’ll make your ideas and influence count at board meetings and stakeholder events. You will also sit on one of our governance committees, contributing your skills and knowledge to help FNF. We have a board development programme and also offer a buddy system to help welcome you and enable you to benefit from shared experience and perspectives.

This is an exciting time to join our board, as we have just set out on our “Beyond 2020” vision. As a trustee, you will be responsible for providing leadership and support to our senior staff to deliver the strategy and ensure that everything we do supports our mission.

We know that diverse boards make better decisions, so it’s really important to us that we have a variety of perspectives and experiences on our board. Nursing and Midwifery are well represented as are our scholars and alumni; it is important therefore for our Board to represent this diversity. Our trustee roles are open to everyone and we encourage applicants from all backgrounds, irrespective of gender, gender identity, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and age. We welcome candidates who think they have the required skills and can contribute as a trustee. We would like to particularly encourage those from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, people belonging to minority religions, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities and long-term conditions to apply to bring fresh perspectives through their lived experience.
