Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity
Trustee and Board Member, Corporate Partnerships Board
Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, housing the widest range of specialists under one roof.
Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) became a separate legal entity from the hospital and registered Charity in 1998 and in 2014 was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee.
Today, GOSH Charity supports the Hospital and the seriously ill children from across the UK who are treated there by funding four key areas:
- Research into pioneering new treatments for children
- Essential rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital
- Vital support services for children and their families
- Life-saving medical equipment
We are at an exciting time as an organisation, about to launch our new five-year Organisation Strategy. Our key priorities are delivering impact, growing and diversifying our income, and working in partnership. A significant deliverable within this Strategy is to support the Hospital with one of the most significant and ambitious redevelopment projects in our history, the Children’s Cancer Centre.
At this critical time we are seeking a new Trustee to join the Board and help us to achieve our ambitions. We are particularly keen to attract an individual who have senior or expert level experience in their field, ideally with significant operational or organisational development experience gained in a complex setting. The new Trustee will also join the Finance and Resources Committee bringing a focus on resources, whether that’s gained from a background in operations, technology or people.
We are also seeking an individual to become a part of The Corporate Partnership Board. This is a volunteer body that plays a vital role helping GOSH Charity achieve its ambitious budgets through securing support from the corporate sector. Members are volunteers whose role is to open their own business networks and make introductions to the Charity, supporting efforts to develop and secure partnerships and activity. Members act individually on specific prospects and collectively under the leadership of the Chair to provide advice and insight.
These are exciting opportunities to be part of a fantastic organisation and are hugely rewarding.
