Mary’s Meals is a global movement supported by people from all walks of life and we are focused on one goal – that every child receives a nutritious daily meal in a place of education. We continue to change the lives of more than 1.6 million children who today will receive Mary’s Meals.
The IT services officer will be responsible for the provision of an IT support service to maintain the Mary’s Meals UK IT infrastructure and provide a customer-focused service to employees and volunteers.
This will involve the daily administration, maintenance, and monitoring of the Mary’s Meals UK IT infrastructure estate, supporting the testing and commissioning of new systems and services, and the delivery of IT projects.
This is a hands-on technical operations role, working closely with internal stakeholders and third-party suppliers. Using infrastructure knowledge, this role will contribute significantly to the continuous improvement towards operational excellence.
Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with the blood cancer myeloma and related conditions. We are committed to bringing together the best and brightest people to help us ensure that every patient has an empowered present and a hopeful future. We are now looking to appoint three new Trustees to join our Board.
To realise our long-term ambition to make myeloma history, we relentlessly pursue better outcomes for myeloma patients and patients with related conditions through a comprehensive early diagnosis programme, a unique research portfolio, our treatment access strategy, information and support services, and healthcare improvement services.
As part of our Board, you will share responsibility for offering us strategic direction and a commitment to good governance and financial health. Your experience, skills, and networks will help inform Myeloma UK’s decision making and delivery. Your commitment to our patients and to working as part of a dynamic, co-operative team will reflect our culture.
Experience in digital transformation and IT, policy and influencing, or income generation and philanthropy is of particular interest to us.
We’re interested in people who have helped charities and organisations achieve their ambitions, be that through professional or lived experience. We know a team needs different talents and we’d like to hear about what makes you exceptional - your skills, your interests, your experience and your values. We’re committed to reflecting the whole myeloma community in our structure, so we particularly encourage applications from black and ethnic minority communities and from people with disabilities.
seescape is seeking new trustees to help the charity as we grow and develop
Based in in Kirkcaldy, Fife, seescape is a well-established charity working to improve the independence and quality of life of those who have sight impairment, their families and carers. seescape believes that it is important to raise awareness of the needs of sight impaired people by changing attitudes and breaking down the barriers that prevent people living with sight impairment being full and active members of society.
seescape provides a diverse range of activities and support to its beneficiaries. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with the charity as it seeks to grow and develop.
The role may appeal to people with a background and skills in one or more of the following areas: eye health, business planning and development, fundraising, HR, IT, charity governance or marketing.
seescape would like to appoint trustees to complement the current board in its role as a governing body: setting strategy and ensuring exemplary governance and fiscal control. Ideally the candidate would be someone with an understanding of charities and the voluntary sector. Most importantly they will have some strategic expertise and understanding of good governance.
The charity is keen to bring additional skills to its board, however, seescape is keen to attract applicants from a diverse audience so other skills will also be welcomed.
Board meetings are held every 6 weeks and these are currently being held virtually by Zoom.
