Voluntary Position (Expenses paid)


The University College of Osteopathy (UCO) is a dynamic and ambitious institution seeking to recruit new volunteer directors/board members to drive the strategic vision of the UCO. In the last three years, we have been awarded Taught Degree Awarding Powers, public funding, TEF Silver and University College title and we launched a five-year Strategic Plan in 2018. We are also reviewing our building requirements making this a particularly exciting time to be involved with the governance of the UCO.

We are looking for two individuals, one who comes with the background of a qualified Osteopathic practitioner and the other with a background in Finance and/or Accountancy.   

Our ideal appointments would be senior professionals, to assist in the direction and ongoing improvements in these areas, rather than requirements for specialist technical knowledge.
