Could you be a Trustee?


Closing date: 12 October, 2018 at noon

The Dunhill Medical Trust not only funds some of the very best of the UK’s academic and clinical research into understanding the mechanisms of ageing and treating age-related diseases and frailty; it also supports community-based organisations that are working to enhance the lives of those who need extra support in later life.

The Trust has reached an exciting point in its development. Following the appointments of a new Chair and new Chief Executive two years ago, it is part way through a transformation programme with some interesting new strategic opportunities to consider and is seeking up to three new Trustees with the commitment, vision and expertise to contribute to its next phase of development.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Academic and/or clinical leaders in geriatric medicine and/or primary care.
  • Those with relevant specialist experience of planning and design of the built environment.
  • Those with experience of delivering innovation in financial support for the community and voluntary sectors.
  • Those from a legal background.
  • Those from a financial and/or investment management or practitioner background.
  • Those from an information technology background.

Applications are invited from across the UK and board meetings are held quarterly in central London (the time commitment is around 6-8 days per year). Although the role is unpaid, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

The Trust recognizes that diversity is essential for excellence and increases the capacity to develop, innovate and grow. We therefore welcome applications from under-represented groups.

Read our Equality and Diversity Policy.

How to apply

Applications should be addressed to Susan Kay, Executive Director at and should be in the form of a curriculum vitae with a covering letter of no more than two pages outlining your interest in the work of the Trust and how you believe you meet the needs of the role (you may access a role description  and our latest report and accounts via the sidebar on this page and find out more about the Trust on our website).  We are unable to consider applications without such a covering letter.

For a confidential, informal discussion regarding the role, please contact Susan Kay in the first instance.
