The charity has recently won several major contracts and is looking for forward thinking board members to drive our next stage of development.
In addition to their roles as a general trustee, the chair will provide leadership and work with the rest of the board, and executive team, to set vision and strategy for the charity. The Chair will also drive the performance of the whole board and ensure the charity’s values are upheld.
Trustees will work with the rest of the board, and executive team, to set vision and strategy for the charity. They will provide governance oversight of the strategy, ensuring the charity’s resources are expended in an inclusive, efficient manner in furtherance of the charity’s aims.
