From our office

Applications for this role close at 9 a.m. Tuesday 2nd April 2024. 

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. We are a registered charity, a professional body and a membership organisation with a Royal Charter and act as a champion, adviser, advocate and trainer for safety and health professionals around the world. We have a wholly owned trading subsidiary, IOSH Services Limited, whose principal activities include the sale of publications, seminars, conferences and the development and accreditation of health and safety awareness training.

With 50,000 members worldwide we have a significant and positive impact on the health, safety, and wellbeing of working people around the world, providing a powerful voice for change and improvement. We have around 200 staff and our income for the year ending 31 March 2023 was £16.5 million with investments of £11.2m.

This is a very exciting time to join the IOSH Board of Trustees as we are coming to the end of our first year of our ambitious five-year strategy, Activate 2028. COVID has enhanced the value of IOSH members in their workplaces, and the Board is keen to capitalise on this to develop IOSH’s role in promoting mental health and occupational wellbeing.

Who we are looking for:

We are seeking two Independent Trustees who can demonstrate alignment to and empathy with the vision, mission, and values of IOSH.  The Board is focused on business that matters and has an open, transparent, and inclusive culture that enjoys the active participation of all Board Members. To broaden the diversity of the Board we are particularly interested in recruiting women to achieve a better gender balance.

One Independent Trustee will need to be financially qualified with sound commercial acumen to support the financial success of IOSH, and also sit on the Board of IOSH Services Limited, our trading subsidiary.

The other Independent Trustee will bolster the Board’s capacity in the area of IT, digital, cyber and information governance and compliance, to assist us in driving forward with improvements and modernisation of our systems and services. 

This recruitment is an opportunity for us to recruit people to bring a fresh perspective and the Board is committed to supporting somebody with the potential to grow confidently into the role. This is a wonderful opportunity for somebody with the passion for IOSH’s work to both contribute to and develop their professional experience at the same time.

The time commitment averages at one day per month and includes four board meetings, two development days, participating in committee meetings, engaging with IOSH on an ad hoc basis and attending events and functions. The term of office is three years.
