The Trust would like to appoint a new Chair as it enters a new chapter, poised to build on the achievements of the last few years with a wealth of opportunities to deliver even more to the communities that it serves.

The successful Chair will need to demonstrate:

• Providing leadership and setting the strategy of an organisation

• An understanding of the charitable and/or not-for-profit sectors

• Integrity, strategic vision and good, independent judgement

• A sound understanding of financial management in the public, charitable or not-for-profit sectors



The Chair should be able to commit themselves to the work of the Board. There are 5/6 Board meetings per year and the Chair attends committees as required, as well supporting the Chief Executive. Board members serve on a voluntary basis, though reasonable expenses will be paid.
