Part Time

UK-Med is a world renowned charity based in Manchester, UK. We recruit and train UK health care workers to provide a volunteer emergency medical response at times of catastrophe overseas. We are a core partner in the delivery of the UK Emergency Medical Team programme funded by the Department for International Development.  

We have experienced rapid growth in recent times and are seeking to recruit three additional trustees to strengthen our Board and help the charity achieve our vision.


We are seeking trustees who share our values and ambition and will work with us to support the charity in its aim to provide the highest quality of medical care to those most in need. They will bring with them demonstrable insight and senior level experience in the following areas:

  • Medical governance of an organisation (must be medically qualified)
  • Strategic communications
  • Publicity and fundraising

The Board currently meets four times per year with its work further supported by sub-committees and advisory groups. Trustee roles are for an initial three-year term and are unremunerated. Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed to attend meetings.
