The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is the world’s largest and only Chartered professional body focused on safety, health and wellbeing in the workplace.

We are a registered charity, a professional body and a membership organisation with a Royal Charter and act as a champion, adviser, advocate and trainer for safety and health professionals around the world. We have a wholly owned trading subsidiary, IOSH Services Limited, whose principals activities include the sale of publications, seminars, conferences and the development and accreditation of health and safety awareness training.

With over 47,000 members worldwide we have a significant and positive impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of working people around the world, providing a powerful voice for change and improvement. We have just under 190 staff and our income for the year ending 31 March 2021 was £12,353,000 with investments of £10.8m.

This is a very exciting time to join the IOSH Board of Trustees as we are in the final year of our ambitious five-year strategy, WORK 2022 – shaping the future of safety and health. We are also in the process of developing a new strategy.

We seek an Independent Trustee who is committed to IOSH and can demonstrate strategic vision, sound commercial acumen and excellent communication skills. We are particularly keen to attract a Chartered Accountant who will bring high level strategic experience in finance, audit and governance and who can step into the role of Chair of our Finance & Investment Committee when our current committee Chair ends their term of office at the end of October 2022.

To ensure we have a diverse and inclusive Board with different skills and perspectives, we welcome applications from a wide range of backgrounds.

The time commitment is around 12-15 days per year and includes four board meetings, two development days, participating in committee meetings, engaging with IOSH on an ad hoc basis and attending events and functions. The term of office is three years.
