VN Trustee sought

The RCVS Charitable Trust’s veterinary nurse Trustee, Tracy Mayne, steps down in 2012, after seven years on the Board. The Trust will be looking to recruit her replacement and is keen to find a veterinary nurse who fits the bill. 

The Trust is the charity associated with the RCVS, and offers a veterinary library and veterinary grants and projects programme.

It has given over £2.7million in grants since 2005, and in 2010 it had 2,000 Library Members.

Some of its 11 Trustees have been appointed by RCVS Council and others have relevant expertise, such as marketing and library management. 

“We are keen to hear from veterinary nurses who are likely to have substantial credibility and influence within the veterinary nurse profession already, and will certainly have demonstrable ability to make things happen.

"We need someone who has energy, ideas and enthusiasm and who can work in the collegiate style of the Board,” says Trust Director, Cherry Bushell.

Trustees serve a three-year term and spend around six days a year at meetings in central London and attending conferences.

Reasonable expenses are reimbursed and training is available.
