Our team makes a difference to the lives of patients, family and friends at King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust by working closely with the people who care for patients, and funding projects that enhance every aspect of health care.
We support exciting initiatives that improve health; work that helps to prevent people from becoming ill, and projects designed to improve diagnosis, treatment and care. We support the day-to-day work of the hospitals and deliver practical benefits by raising money for cutting edge equipment, innovative research, pioneering treatment, and superior staff development and support.
If you would like to help us on our exciting journey, please see our current vacancies below.
Due to natural succession, vacancies will soon be arising on our Board of Trustees. Over the next six months, we are looking to recruit up to four new trustees who share our passion for improving care for patients at King's, and who have skills and experience in any of the following areas:
- Finance and/or investments
- Medical research
- Digital technology / communications
The Board is seeking to ensure a diversity of perspectives that is truly representative of our local communities. We are keen to meet candidates from all walks of life who live or work locally to our hospitals in Denmark Hill, Bromley and Orpington, or those who have experienced the care delivered by King's.
We particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups: people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, people living with disabilities, and people across broad age-range. We do not require applicants to have previous experience as a charity trustee. More than anything, we want to increase diversity and ensure all our trustees carry a passion for the work we do.
