Chemists’ Community Fund Committee Members
We currently have a small number of vacancies on the Chemists’ Community Fund Committee and are seeking expressions of interest from members who have the necessary skills and knowledge to join the Committee, now or in the future.
This Committee has delegated authority from the RSC Board of Trustees to shape the work and increase the impact of the Fund, within an agreed framework and budget. The committee is being reconstituted with a wider remit from July 2020, as the Fund continues to expand its activity to achieve greater impact for our community.
To ensure that we maintain a balance of skills and experiences from across our membership on the Committee we are currently seeking those who have:
- Experience working at a strategic level
- An empathetic understanding of the current issues that may be impacting the wellbeing of individuals and groups within our community, e.g. mental health, financial matters and diversity and inclusion concerns
- Knowledge of existing support mechanisms available for key audiences such as students, postdocs, those working in SMEs and technicians, and any gaps in provision
- The ability to support and challenge the Fund manager and staff
- Time to commit to the role. (Three full day meetings per year, usually hosted in Burlington House in London, but currently being held online due to Covid-19, as well as a small number of decisions supported via email between meetings).
We will also consider the diversity across the Committee members. We particularly welcome expressions of interest from members from underrepresented groups.
If you are interested in one of the small number of current vacancies please do contact Anna Dearden, Secretary, Chemists’ Community Fund Committee, by Monday 15th June detailing how you meet these knowledge and skills requirements, and why you are interested in this opportunity.
Alternatively after this date we would still be keen to hear from you for the Chemists’ Community Fund vacancies that will arise in the future.
