The Biochemical Society is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where we can all be ourselves.
We value personal expertise and lived experience as well as your technical expertise and career history.
If you can demonstrate the passion and determination to develop board acumen you don’t need to have previous experience of sitting on a board or committee. We know that diverse teams make us stronger and more effective as an organisation, and we look forward to hearing from all interested candidates.
Please note, You do not need to be a member of the Biochemical Society to put yourself forward for many of our available opportunities, nor do you need to be based in the UK.
Our board, committee and panel members play a key role in shaping the direction of the Society and the decisions we take to support and engage with our community.
All panel and board members* receive free Society membership for the length of their time in office and have the opportunity to engage with colleagues and peers to discuss a variety of topics, share opinions and advocate for change.
You will gain valuable experience in board/committee work, board room dynamics and the overall governance of a charity and company, whilst helping to make a real difference for the biochemical community.
*Does not include Trustees or Independent Members.
Civica Election Services administers the nominations cycle on behalf of the Biochemical Society.
