For 140 years we have worked passionately to support dental students, dentists, and their families throughout the UK. Receiving over 160 applications in 2022, we provide grant funding and wellbeing services to those facing difficult situations.
We are looking for two Trustees to be co-opted (appointed immediately) to join the Board and stand for election by the members at the Annual General Meeting in June 2024. As a Trustee, you can make a real difference through your involvement and applying your knowledge to support and develop our work.
After undertaking an analysis of the current Board, we have identified specific characteristics or experiences we are looking for to enhance those offered by the existing Trustees. We are also aiming to improve the Board’s diversity to better reflect society, our applicants, and the dental community.
We particularly welcome interest and applications from…
- the global majority
- dental students
- people with disabilities
- LGBTQ+ people
We would welcome those residing/working in Scotland and/ or Wales and those with expertise in finance or fundraising.
This could be your first Trustee role, or you could already have some experience as a Trustee. We have a full induction process and ongoing training to support you. You will have the opportunity to make a difference in the dental community as well as develop or enhance your skills and knowledge of the charity sector.
Trustee positions are voluntary, but we don’t expect you to be out of pocket for carrying out your role, so expenses for travel, etc. are paid in accordance with our Expenses Policy.
The deadline for applying is 5 pm on Friday 27 October 2023. Candidates will be shortlisted and if successful, invited to attend an interview on 14 November 2023.
Should you require further information or would like to chat about the role, please contact us.
