Background

Anaesthetists have overall responsibility for patients’ well being before, during and after surgery.  They are often the lynchpin that holds secondary care together and are the UK’s largest hospital specialty. 16% of all hospital consultants are anaesthetists and over two-thirds of hospital in-patients will see an anaesthetist. Away from the operating theatre, anaesthetists are involved in a broad range of activities, from maternity care to dentistry, resuscitation to sleep medicine. Their work crosses many boundaries providing anaesthetists with a unique position to see the big picture and to have a broad understanding of healthcare delivery.

Our client supports approximately 22,000 members and fellows, including approximately 4,000 from their associated Faculties of Intensive Care Medicine and Pain Medicine. They champion the work of anaesthetists, and the science that underpins their work. They recruit, train and examine anaesthetists to the most exacting standards.  They support their members throughout their careers, and fund research to ensure that anaesthesia continues to advance.  They promote the sharing of knowledge and best practice, and work with government and other stakeholders in the UK and overseas to make sure that anaesthesia and anaesthetists play a central role in shaping and delivering the healthcare agenda.
 
What they are looking for
 

Traditionally, their council has acted as the Board of Trustees.  After an extensive governance review and with the College having grown to an annual turnover of over £12 million, investments of a similar value, and employing 100 staff we have decided to create a new Board of Trustees. This group will work with the council, who will continue to oversee professional issues. 

They are now looking to strengthen their new Board with three additional Trustees, to sit alongside the Board’s members drawn from the council.  It is envisaged that the Board of Trustees will meet four times each year, with a total commitment of around 8-12 days per year.  While they are interested in all candidates who meet the brief they would particularly like to hear from candidates with Finance & Investment, Estates Management and Charity Governance experience.  In addition, Communications, Fundraising and Technology have also been identified as desirable experience.

Deadline for applications: Midday on Thursday 15 March 2018. 
Proposed interview date:  18 April 2018
First meeting of the Board of Trustees:  20 June 2018
