Key role, leading-edge, award-winning board – make a difference to the lives of Deaf People.

Are you, like many of us at this time of universal crisis, re-thinking what’s important in your life?

Are you, like thousands of others in the UK right now, actively searching for something meaningful to be part of?

Do you want to contribute and add value to the lives of people in your community who are often overlooked or ignored?

Do you want to join SignHealth in their mission to remove obstacles and improve the quality of essential health care experienced by Deaf adults, children and young people??

 

SignHealth is a passionate and unique Deaf led charity, committed to creating a future where there are no barriers to good health and well-being for Deaf people.

Established over 30 years ago in response to a lack of services for Deaf people with mental health issues, they now deliver a wide range of vital, specialist services designed by Deaf people for Deaf people in the UK. They have more than 100 staff and a turnover of approx. £5m.

Services are provided directly in British Sign Language (BSL), and they work tirelessly to identify areas of need within our Deaf community, implementing key initiatives to ensure the Deaf community have the same access to healthcare, as hearing people.

Could this be you?

  • You have a minimum of 3 years’ experience at Director level in a charity or a comprehensive understanding of charity finance.
  • You want to play a critical role in a socially responsible organisation, demonstrating the public benefit of our work while minimising its environmental impact.
  • You have the passion, vision, drive and communication skills to lead a successful, well-established, energetic and talented team.
  • You want to be an integral part of an organisation committed to improving the quality of life and enabling fairer access to funding and support for people within your community.

If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you. We positively welcome applications from D/deaf people.
