The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is the world’s largest and only Chartered professional body focused on safety, health and wellbeing in the workplace.
IOSH’s vision is clear: a safe and healthy world of work. Its purpose is now more vital than ever.
Millions of people’s lives are negatively affected by the work they do, with illness, injury and death all too common. However, work can and should be beneficial.
When it’s good, work gives people status, positive health benefits, a good quality of life and a sense of wellbeing. By working together, we will all achieve a safer and healthier world of work and as the Chartered body for health and safety, IOSH is already leading the way for our profession.
IOSH has over 47,000 members in 130 countries. We act as champion, adviser, advocate and trainer for safety and health professionals working in organisations of all sizes in most sectors. Our members create workplaces that are safer, healthier and more sustainable for everyone.
We’re also a thought-leader and an enabler, working collaboratively to help organisations around the world excel in safety and health.
We are seeking to recruit a Chair for the Board of Trustees. You will be joining at a very exciting time for IOSH. We have been through a period of momentous change delivered though our organisation-wide transformation programme, ‘Transforming Together’. This has enabled us to implement our ambitious five-year strategy, WORK 2022 – shaping the future of safety and health.
IOSH welcomes applications from people with a successful track record of achievement who have experience of operating at a very senior, strategic leadership level in a complex organisation. If you have a high level of integrity, a deep understanding of governance, sound commercial insight and a commitment to the work undertaken by the Institution, we want to hear from you.
This is a tremendous opportunity for you to represent our global charity on the world stage and to advocate on behalf of the entire occupational safety and health profession.
The role is unremunerated. However, reasonable expenses will be paid. The role will require a time commitment of three days per month on average, inclusive of Board meetings.
