Wellcome is a global charitable foundation. We improve health for everyone by funding science, leading policy and advocacy campaigns, and building partnerships.

We plan to spend £16bn over the next ten years, funding new discoveries in life, health and wellbeing, and taking on three global health challenges: mental health, infectious disease and climate.

These challenges need the bold research our funding supports, but they won’t be solved by science alone.

We are now seeking to appoint an external member of the Audit and Risk Committee who will provide effective oversight and challenge of matters within the committee’s duties and responsibilities.

We are eager to recruit a committee member who will bring a high level of financial literacy and acuity, the experience in assessing and managing risk in complex organisations, including strategic risk, and able to contribute rigorously and meaningfully to the organisation’s governance and assurance processes.

The ideal candidates will demonstrate board level and governance experience in relevant settings, a clear interest in the mission and vision of Wellcome, and will bring to bear their skills, insights and experience in support of our work.

We are committed to broadening the diversity of people we employ so that our workforce is more representative of all sections of society, at all levels of the organisation. We encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.

The appointment is for 3 years, subject to a review after 1 year, with the option to extend. The expected time commitment for the role is approximately 10 days per year. The appointment will be remunerated.

The deadline for applications is Monday 27 June at midday BST.
