Parkinson's UK
Independent Audit and Risk Committee Member
London

Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own. This is what Parkinson's can feel like.

Every hour, two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson's - a brain condition that turns lives upside down, leaving a future full of uncertainty.

Parkinson's UK is an ambitious and dynamic charity, passionate about improving the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson's and finding better treatments and a cure. Due to the natural retirement of a committee member we are currently seeking an Independent Audit and Risk Committee Member.

To be part of Parkinson's UK now could be a life event for all of us. We're moving fast now to deliver quality services to everyone affected by Parkinson's including by developing and using new technologies, and to find better treatments - maybe even a cure - for Parkinson's within years, not decades. You could be part of making this happen.

This is an exciting time for the charity as we begin the process of developing our strategy for 2020 onwards. The guidance and leadership from the Board and its committees will be crucial to this and to the charity achieving its ambitious goals.

As an independent member of our Audit and Risk Committee, you will be a crucial part of the organisation's governance, providing valuable expertise and knowledge to help the Board manage risk and properly discharge its responsibilities by ensuring that the Charity has effective internal control systems and is operating within approved policies, its budget, and the law.

To be successful in the role, candidates must be able to demonstrate:

  • Commitment to the aims and values of Parkinson's UK
  • Understanding of the duties and responsibilities of being a committee member
  • Extensive experience and understanding of financial and risk management
  • Understanding of the role of audit (internal and/or external)
  • Willingness to devote the necessary time and effort

Feeling inspired? Please visit www.parkinsons-governance.org to find out more about this opportunity.

Closing date: Wednesday 6 June 2018
