Alumni Champions

For Alumni seeking to be even more engaged with the Foundation in an official capacity, we are excited to offer a brand-new and exclusive FNF Champion opportunity!

We know that many of our Alumni already proudly wave the FNF flag for us, which is why we want to be able to officially recognise all the hard work you put in to raise the Foundation’s visibility with this prestigious role and title. We are looking to recruit 10 champions for each region in England and 10 in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. We aim to ensure that nurses and midwives from across the UK know about and have access to our development opportunities.

As an FNF Champion, you will represent the Florence Nightingale Foundation in your region by:

  • Advertising FNF’s scholarships and leadership programmes when they are launched
  • Organising networking events for FNF alumni in your area
  • Identifying regional nursing and midwifery development themes that FNF could help to improve by focusing our work on
  • Share your leadership journey by being an FNF case study
  • Organising fundraising activities or events in your area and securing funding for FNF scholarships where possible
  • Attending champions meeting twice a year virtually and at our office in London

Whilst being a FNF Champion will be a voluntary role, we are excited to offer the following benefits to our champions.

  • Free tickets to our annual Florence Nightingale Commemoration Service at Westminster Abbey, London
  • A FNF Champion title with a badge, email signature and letter stamp
  • Exclusive champion welcome and celebration events
  • A letter from our CEO to your Chief Nurses asking for allocated volunteering time for Champions

Sound like something you are interested in? Fantastic! Below is our recruitment process and criteria.

  • To be considered as an FNF Champion, you will have to have either completed or currently be participating in an FNF Leadership Programme or Scholarship
  • The championship will be offered a 12-month period starting in January every year
  • A Champion might be offered the title again the following year depending on their performance
