Become a trustee of Homeopathy UK and make a positive impact to the health of thousands of people across the UK.

What will you be doing?

Homeopathy UK is a small and nimble charity, established in 1902 and still thriving in 2021.  The charity has a dedicated team of trustees, providing strategic guidance and support to enable the charity to grow and evolve. 

We currently have an opening for a trustee that can share their expertise in digital marketing.  The trustee will provide meaningful input to assist the board in agreeing the best strategies to enable the charity to meet and exceed its targets for providing information to the UK public about homeopathy and ensuring people can access care. 

As a Homeopathy UK Trustee you will be required to:

  • Attend virtual and face-to-face meetings 5 times a year. 
  • Meetings are approximately 3 hours with one meeting being a full day for strategy/planning. 
  • Sit on the Marketing & Communications committee.  Meetings held virtually, 2-4 times a year for an hour and half.
  • You do not need to be an advocate or patient of homeopathy or CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) but you do need to be objective about homeopathy/CAM and energised about helping the charity meet its aims.

Why apply to be a trustee?

As a small charity, agreed strategic and operational changes made at meetings can be implemented very quickly. Homeopathy UK has a board of trustees (currently 8) with a wide range of skills.  Your valuable skills in digital marketing will complement the others’ abilities around the table and help form decisions that will take the charity forward not just for the immediate future but for the longer term.

We are a team at Homeopathy UK where there is mutual respect of everyone’s abilities within the organisation.  At meetings there is an openness in discussion of ideas on how best to maximise the effectiveness of the charity.  As a trustee, you would immediately become an important part of our team.
