Who we are
RAFT is an independent medical research charity based in Northwood, Middlesex. Our dedicated surgeons and scientists undertake research to improve the treatment currently available for patients who have suffered major traumas to their skin such as burns, ulcers and skin cancers.
Trustees – how could you help?
We are a diverse group of people including scientists, laboratory staff, fundraisers, executives and volunteers and we rely on Trustees to contribute their expertise and insight to both challenge and guide the thinking of the Charity. Key words here are: guidance, support, direction and monitoring progress.
We need to recruit and appoint Trustees with specialist science and pharma backgrounds
Rewards and motivation
Trustees are not paid but are rewarded through knowing they are helping to make a real difference to the lives of future patients who have suffered skin trauma.
This might be a way of “giving back” for support you or those close to you have experienced as a result of skin traumas or because you have specialist skills that you think could help RAFT to develop its success and you enjoy making a contribution.
If you become a Trustee you will probably also develop your own skills by meeting new people who are like minded, keen to contribute to society and who operate at very senior levels of the medical profession, business, academia and science.
We know that applying to become a Trustee can be a big step so we have put together some information and useful links for you to see if you would like to take things further.
Please visit the RAFT website www.raft.ac.uk where you can download a Trustee Information Pack from the Staff Vacancies page. This pack also has useful links to external organisations that can give you a sense of the role of a Trustee and details of how to apply.
This application should reach us no later than 11th December 2012 and we will let you know soon afterwards how we might like to take things forward.
RAFT is an equal opportunity employer which welcomes applications from a diverse range of qualified applicants.
