About the role

We are looking for our next Board Chair, as our current Chair completes his full term in September 2019. This is a great time to join us as we embark on the next phase in our development. With our new Chief Executive, joining us in January 2019, there is a real opportunity to grow into your roles together, building on our solid reputation and legacy, shaping and progressing our governance arrangements and our new strategy for 2020 and beyond.

You’ll have prior experience as Chair of a Board or Chair of a Committee.  You’ll be a strong ambassador and be able to quickly gain the confidence of our stakeholders and the Board and empower and use colleague’s capacity to best effect, whilst demonstrating a strong alignment with our values and ethos.
