Now that we are finally registered as an official UK charity, we are looking to significantly expand our team to enable us to go full speed ahead in preparing our UK Mifne Clinic for launch, in raising awareness of the possibilities and importance of Early Intervnetion in autism, and in establishing our comprehensive online Hub.
We welcome hearing from anyone who would be interested in joining our team, however our key volunteer needs now (in rough order of urgency) are for the following roles. Trustee roles are further down the page.
Where appropriate, click the role heading to read the description on Charity Job. To register your interest in any of these roles, please write to email@example.com - please also make sure you review our values, which are at the heart of the working culture we are aiming to create:
- Campaigns Manager - To lead the design and planning of our awareness campaign on early intervention in autism.
- Autism Specialists - To advise and input into our early intervention awareness campaign, and others to sit on an Advisory Board to review materials and messages that we put out. We need at least one widely-respected autism specialist - ideally one who is passionate and vocal about Early Identification and Intervention - to sit on our Trustee board.
- Clinical Advisor - to advise us on all aspects of the setting up of a therapeutic facility (the Mifne clinic).
- Facilities Manager - To acquire and arrange the rrenovation of a building for our Mifne clinic.
- Marketing Specialists and a Head of Marketing - To build our marketing team with a range of marketing skills, including someone with PR skills.
- IT Manager - To manage our (currently small but about to explode) IT requirements - e.g. selection of CRM systems, other systems, etc
- Researchers - There will be many times when we need to locate information, studies, people and other research in support of our message and especially our information campaigns on Early Intervention and later on Transition to Adulthood, along with other relevant input. Any help we can get with this would be very valuable.
- Professional Support - e.g procurement, HR, legal, etc, to help us to set up our systems and processes as we begin our activities.
We are looking to recruit a Chair and Treasurer who have excellent charity governance experience for our Trustee Board, along with an Autism Specialist (see the volunteer ad above for more details), who is perhaps widely known in the area.
The key role of each Trustee, beyond expertise in their specialist area will be to provide guidance and leadership to the organisation. They will be expected to bring their experience and networking skills to steer us and help us negotiate any difficulties we may encounter along the way. This will be particularly critical in the initial period, as we work towards the establishment of our first specialist ‘Mifne’ autism clinic in the UK.
The role will be more hands-on than many Charity Trustee roles, given the stage we are at and the rapid growth that we are expecting.
We are interested in hearing from anybody who feels they would be able to substantially support our purpose.
First and foremost, you will believe in the huge potential within each autistic child, and will deeply resonate with our mission and our values. You will feel inspired by and invested in them, and motivated to bring into your life a passion and inner commitment to help realise them.
Beyond this, you will have extensive experience in your field and in either the governance of charities, or relevant and transferable accomplishments in other leadership positions.
Some Trustees will be comfortable acting as spokespersons for the charity.
