The Board is responsible for planning for succession at director level and we are now seeking expressions of interest in being a director of the Company.

Directors will be selected so as to create a diverse Board membership that includes men and woman of independent mind, that meet the criteria set out in the Board’s competency framework, which may be downloaded from the below website.

The roles are unpaid voluntary positions although reasonable expenses are paid.

Prior to their appointment, prospective Directors will receive a letter describing the role. They will receive a detailed briefing on the ethos and values of the Saint John of God Hospitaller Order as part of a structured induction to the Board of Directors which will also include specific training in performing the functions of a Company Director under the Companies Act 2014 and as a Trustee under the Charities Act 2009.


A confidential two-stage process will be followed

  1. Expressions of interests which are now being sought will be treated in strictest confidence and each one will be responded to.
  2. The selection panel will review expressions of interest that are received and on the basis of that review will invite a number of people to discuss their interest in becoming a director, following which the panel will make recommendations to the Board.
