About HCWH

Health Care Without Harm Europe exists to create a sustainable healthcare sector. One that does no harm to patients or our planet. One that acts as a catalyst, inspiring action right across society to protect human health and the environment. One that drives change in communities, so people can live more healthily on a healthier planet.

An established international NGO with a 20-year track record of driving forward the sustainable healthcare agenda in Europe, HCWH Europe is a network of thousands of hospitals, healthcare leaders and healthcare professionals, with members across Europe and partners across the globe. From individuals championing sustainability in their workplaces to large hospitals pushing for sustainable practices, we stand side-by-side, sharing insights, inspiration and innovation – and transforming how our healthcare systems work.

We have undergone transformative growth over the past five years, underpinned by a strategy that locates HCWH Europe at the centre of an expanding and increasingly influential sustainable healthcare movement in Europe.

About the roles

We are looking for seven new Board members who can support our journey to create a more sustainable healthcare sector, by providing mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While day-to-day operations are managed by the organisation’s Executive Leadership Team (ELT), the Board plays an integral role in advancing the organisation’s mission — and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for individuals that are passionate about the organisation’s mission and who have the leadership experience to support the goals, strategy and operations of the organisation.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for several new Board members to join our Board with a range of skills and experiences.

As well as being engaged with the work of the organisation, we are looking for people with the following skills and experience who can help us to meet our strategic objectives and ensure good governance. Experience in one or more of the following is essential:

  • HCWH Europe institutional knowledge
  • Global Green and Healthy Hospitals (GGHH) leadership knowledge
  • Financial management and accounting
  • Clinical experience
  • International NGO governance
  • Healthcare industry knowledge
  • Philanthropic giving 

The Board meets four times a year, with one in-person meeting located in Belgium, and three virtual meetings. We also organise an annual strategy retreat for Board members. We expect with reading, calls, informal conversations and other ad hoc activities, the time commitment will be up to 1 day a month.

Applications for this role close at 9 a.m. Monday 25th March 2024.
