At Picker, we believe in person centred care for all, always. We are here to understand and improve people’s experiences of receiving and giving care, and we work with policy makers, providers, and professionals to influence, inspire, and empower the best standards of health and social care.
Now is an exciting time to join the Board; already in 2021, we have been proud to have led the coordination of the NHS 2020 Staff Survey which used machine-based learning to process 600,000 responses and has given the NHS unprecedented depth of insight into their workforce; and later this summer we will be sharing the results of our ground-breaking first national survey for understanding children’s experience of cancer care, developed on behalf of NHS England and NHS Improvement.
We are now seeking up to three exceptional new Trustees to bring their unique set of skills and experience to support the Board. We are looking for people from a wide range of sectors who are leaders in their field; big picture thinkers who can also demonstrate a deep, personal commitment to patient centred care. We are seeking people with a range of skills including: a business leader with experience of organisational design and/or business development; a communications professional with experience of raising the profile of a similar sized charity; and someone with a keen, forensic eye for numbers (although you do not necessarily need to be financially qualified).
You will possess a strategic outlook with strong analytical skills which, combined with excellent interpersonal skills will allow you to contribute and play your part in an engaged and forward-thinking Board. We welcome a wide variety of applicants from all sectors who can demonstrate an understanding our context and share our passion for improving people’s experiences of person centred care. We are ideally looking for people who will have gained some trustee experience.
Picker is committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion in all that we do. This includes a commitment to ensuring diversity in our Board of Trustees so that this group reflects a broad and inclusive range of backgrounds and skills. We welcome applicants from diverse communities and backgrounds.
