  • Do you want to join a team who are determined to grow the reach and impact of the organisation? 

  • Do you have a lived experience of disability or long-term health condition? 

  • Do you have the time to commit to helping us grow the impact of RiDC? 

2. We would be particularly interested to hear from you if you have expertise in:  

  • Financial management, eg accountancy, financial strategy, investment 

  • Marketing, communications and/or public relations 

3. In addition to the above, knowledge and expertise in one or more of the following areas would be an advantage:

  • Developing and growing an organisation

There are four RiDC board meetings a year, held in north London over an afternoon. We cover any reasonable expenses in terms of travel.
