WORKFORCE: The provider trust has appointed a lawyer as a non executive director.

Sue Bucknall’s appointment runs for four years from May 2011 until April 2015. She will receive remuneration of £6,096 per annum.

She was called to the Bar in 1979 and is currently practice manager at REN Legal LLP, a commercial law firm based in London.

Trust chair Simon Turpitt said: “A non-executive director’s role is to keep the board focused on strategic issues, represent the views of the community and provide independent judgement.

“With her wealth of knowledge and expertise as a lawyer and her experience in the commercial, voluntary and charity sectors, Sue is certain to make a significant contribution in these areas.”
