PET Trustee

Job position: N/A
Salary: N/A

The Progress Educational Trust (PET) is a charity dedicated to improving choices for people affected by infertility and genetic conditions, by advancing public understanding of science, law and ethics in assisted reproduction, genetics and stem cell and embryo research.

PET has reached an exciting point in its development. It is at the beginning of a transformation programme thanks to a Sustaining Excellence Award it has received from the Wellcome Trust, with some interesting new opportunities to consider. PET is now looking to recruit two Trustees with the vision to help shape the charity's future, and make best use of the Award.

We are specifically looking for two Trustees - one with expertise in IT and Website Development, and one with expertise in Finance and Accountancy.

This is a chance for you to contribute your knowledge, expertise, passion and enthusiasm – and gain huge learning and fulfilment in return.

If you have an interest in the area PET works in, as well as the experience, commitment, time and enthusiasm to help take PET to the next level, then please apply. For more information, please email PET's Director Sarah Norcross at

Interested applicants should send a CV (maximum 2 sides of A4) and a supportive statement outlining how you meet the requirements of the Trustee person specification (using examples where possible), plus information about your skills in either IT and Web Development or Finance and Accountancy and your motivation for applying (again, maximum 2 sides of A4).

Trustee meetings are held four times per year. Twice a year, the Trustees also hold additional meetings with PET's Advisory Committee.

Some meetings take place during office hours, others in the early evening. Trustees are consulted in advance of setting dates and times, to ensure that these are convenient to the majority.

Trustees are able to join meetings via video or telephone conference facilities.

Please submit your application to Sarah Norcross at

For an informal and confidential discussion, please contact Sarah on +44 (0)20 7278 7870.

Closing date for receipt of applications is 26 February 2018.

Interviews will be held in central London on 13/14 March 2018.
