An exciting opportunity to advocate for bio-medical research in the Wellington Region

We are looking for up to two new Board members willing to make a medium to long term commitment to the objectives of the Foundation. You will be a passionate Wellingtonian, a strategic and innovative thinker, and a team player with established networks. You will have a keen interest in Research For Life’s mission to improve the health of the community by research into the nature, origin, causes, prevention and treatment of diseases and afflictions.

The Board of Research For Life seeks donations, gifts and bequests to support its mission; it oversees the work of its Research Advisory Committee which is led by an expert Board member, it has a Finance and Investment Committee, a PR Consultant Board member, and a contracted administrator who acts as secretary/treasurer.

It would be an advantage to have a medical or legal background and experience in public engagement. Governance experience or a desire to learn or be mentored in governance will be an advantage.
