Become a Trustee at the British Liver Trust

The British Liver Trust is looking for new Trustees to join our Board.

Our Trustees play a pivotal role in providing governance and guidance to ensure we are delivering for people with liver disease and liver cancer. They are involved in setting the strategic direction of our organisation, as well as holding the senior management team to account.  The trustees work closely as a team with the senior management team of the charity, playing an active role advising and mentoring as required.

The British Liver Trust is a small charity with big ambitions. We want liver disease to have the same profile and awareness as the other big killer diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer.

We are looking to recruit trustees to help us grow and develop to meet this challenge. At this time, we would particularly like:

  • to recruit a clinician with specialist Hepatitis B knowledge, and
  • to broaden the diversity of our Board, particularly our ethnic diversity which we recognise as limited currently

The British Liver Trust is committed to improving equality, diversity, and inclusion across the organisation and to building a Board with a variety of backgrounds, skills and views, so that our leadership reflects the population at large and the communities we serve. We also welcome applications from people who have personal experience of liver disease. Please tell us if there may be any barriers to your engagement with us and we will actively work with you to remove these.

We currently have 4 Board meetings a year, usually virtually, Trustees may be asked to sit on a Board sub-committee relevant to their skill set and are invited to get involved in other ways from time to time.

If you have the skills, knowledge and experience required, please ask for a pack from If you would like an informal chat with our Chief Executive, Pamela Healy, please email Helen with your availability so that she arrange this.

Applications close midnight on 14 February
