The Society of Homeopaths, the largest organisation of registered homeopaths in the UK, is seeking a new Chief Executive due to the impending retirement of our incumbent later in 2019.
A not for profit organisation, we are based in Northampton and are the only dedicated homeopathy register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. Established in 1978, our principal aims and activities are the promotion and maintenance of high standards for the practice of homeopathy as well as support of our membership.
The last 5 years have seen major change in the Society with a comprehensive professionalisation of our wide range of services from our customer care to our new journal, our completely rebuilt website to our support for practising homeopaths. Through advocacy and lobbying we also work hard to raise public awareness and appreciation of homeopathy as a complementary or alternative medicine.
Our membership is increasing and our recently published Strategic Plan outlines how we intend to build on recent success and we are looking for a Chief Executive who will lead this process.
An advocate for promoting the “right to practise”, you will be an excellent communicator able to engage with multiple stakeholders in order to raise our profile even further, alongside the ability to influence and lobby on behalf of our members.
You will also require sound financial knowledge, be an accomplished manager of people and have a proven track record of delivering service improvements promoting the highest standards of corporate governance and ethical behaviour.
For further information on the work of the Society and to find out more about what we are seeking in our next Chief Executive, please contact our retained consultants via Rebecca du Plessis, Director of Langton Not 4 Profit at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07833 230168.
Closing date for initial enquiries is Friday 28th June.
Research Sub Committee
We are looking for new members for our Research Sub Committee
The sub committee supports Society staff and members in their efforts to increase knowledge and understanding in the field of homeopathy research by:
providing guidance and support for homeopaths who wish to embark on particular research projects
supporting and advising the board and staff in the development and dissemination of research
encouraging and supporting the development of a range of research methodologies relevant to homeopathy.
The sub committee is made up of up to 10 RSHoms and lay members meeting 3 times a year – usually through telephone conferencing. There is occasionally a need for discussions and decisions between meetings. The time commitment is relatively modest and any out of pocket expenses are covered.
If you are interested in research and would like to be involved please e-mail email@example.com outlining your experience and how you feel you can contribute.
Closing date is Monday 8th July.
If you would like to talk about this opportunity prior to applying contact Mark Taylor on the above e-mail.
