Breathe is very fortunate to have Board Directors who have worked with us diligently and faithfully for a number of years, bringing insights and a history to the organisation that has enabled us to stay true to our objectives, values and founding principles. We are now seeking to appoint up to three additional Directors to enable a wider range of skillsets and experience to be represented at Board level.
Whilst we welcome applications from all, based on a recent audit of our current Board we are particularly interested in applications from people who have experience in one or more of the following areas of knowledge and expertise;
- Communications / Marketing / PR
- Human Resources
- Clinical / Healthcare delivery
- Scale-up / Business Development
- Research / Academia
- Artistic Voice / Producing
In addition to sharing the company values, we are seeking individuals who feel they align with the below traits;
It’s important to us that our Board reflects the diversity of those we support. We recognise that diverse teams improve the quality and richness of our work, and that diverse connections are essential for creating lasting change. Our Board is currently under-representative of some communities and characteristics, and so, whilst being keen to hear from all potentially suitable applicants, we are particularly interested in applications from:
- People with lived experience of the issues we seek to address
- Individuals who identify as deaf and / or disabled, people of colour and all under-represented groups
- Previous participants / NHS staff who have first-hand experience of Breathe’s work
If you have further questions, or would like to discuss the role before applying, please feel free to contact Yvonne Farquharson, Founder and Managing Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Claire Austen, PA to the Managing Director (email@example.com). We would welcome the opportunity to chat with you.
Deadline for applications: Friday 30 June, 5pm.
Interview timeframe: July 2023 at Breathe’s office, London, SE1 6FE.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an initial discussion with Breathe’s Managing Director and Chairman.
