The board of trustees of the RCVS Charitable Trust is looking to recruit a registered veterinary nurse (RVN) as a trustee, to step into the shoes of the current VN trustee, Tracy Mayne RVN, when she stands down in June.
Mrs Mayne, the VN partner of Redditch Vets4Pets, has been a trustee since 2005.
She said: “I wanted to be a part of a trust that had its finger on the pulse of what the profession needed to continue to evolve. You need to stay long enough to learn the ropes, fulfil your ambitions for the role, fulfil the role for which you were appointed and then move on.”
The board is responsible for governance and policy making, as well as supporting the director and a staff team of five.
Director Cherry Bushell said: “At a time when the trust wants to develop more active support for veterinary nurses, this is an important appointment. We hope to recruit someone who has a strong vision and new ideas about how this ambition can be realised.”
Applications are sought from registered veterinary nurses with suitable experience and outlooks, and the successful candidate will be expected to join the board at the trust’s annual general meeting (AGM) in June 2012. Past or current experience of being a trustee is desirable however this is not necessary. All trustee roles are unpaid, with reasonable expenses such as travel being reimbursed.
The appointment is for a three year term, which may be renewed, and all trustees are expected to attend a minimum of three board meetings, plus the June AGM, each year. Additional time will be needed to support veterinary nursing projects and develop collaborations with relevant individuals and organisations.
- Application by CV and covering letter should be sent to Cherry Bushell at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 27, 2012.
