Deadline

We support medical research for the benefit of people but without the use of animals or animal products. We support blue sky or orphan research, We support developing non - animal methodologies and scientists at the start of their careers.

What will you be doing?

Attend quarterly Trust Board meetings. Work on skill specific projects in between. Help to develop future strategy and be involved in the general management of the Trust. Provide input on the choice of new medical research projects as lay person.

What are we looking for?

Due to recent retirements we are looking for a number of Trustees with professional expertise and experience in the areas of Digital Marketing; Accounting; and Law. Trustees must be willing to work as part of a team and to assist in the general management and operation of the Trust. We anticipate that this will involve about 3-5 hours a month plus attendance at quarterly Board meetings.

What difference will you make?

The Trust has lost a number of Trustees recently due to retirement after long and valued service. We have taken this opportunity to refresh the skill base of the Trustees and are looking for people wanting to make a real contribution to moving forward.

What's in it for the volunteer?

The Humane Research Trust believes that human models work best for human diseases and that working with us offers the opportunity to advance medical knowledge and treatment for people with problems that don't often attract the large scale funders or Pharma either because the work is 'blue sky' or  the disease is rare and does not offer sufficient financial return. It also offers the opportunity to relieve the very real suffering of animals involved in research. As the Board is small in number it offers new recruits the opportunity to contribute both within and outside their professional skills remit in a supportive culture.
