Shine works tirelessly to shape better policies and services for all those affected by mental ill health. It supports the rights of individuals and groups to enhance their recovery, promoted access to services, challenges negative attitudes and behaviours and delivers a variety of programmes and services.

About the role
Shine is now seeking to appoint three new Board Directors with skills, perspectives, and experience to complement those of current Board members and expand the Board’s capacity and capability to meet opportunities and challenges ahead. Please note, these are voluntary, unpaid positions. These are new roles on the Board as a result of required succession planning, changes to the constitution and the requirement for additional skills to support the execution of Shine’s Strategy.
The Board maintains an overview of policy and the strategic direction of Shine rather than being involved in the day-to-day operations. An initial priority for the new board members will be to add knowledgeable voices to the strategic discussions currently taking place around Shine’s strategy out to 2025 and beyond.
We are seeking applications from individuals with experience and skills in the following areas:
- Finance / Governance
- IT / Technology
- Marketing / Branding
Previous Director experience would be a distinct advantage, along with knowledge of the charity sector, in particular mental health.
