Active Communities is seeking to appoint a new Chairperson to lead and guide the charity through an exciting and ambitious phase of growth.

As Chair you will lead our Board of Trustees and work with the CEO and staff to develop the new strategic direction of the organisation as we move into our new premises later this year. The Chair will also ensure robust governance arrangements are in place, monitor the performance of the organisation and bring constructive challenge to influence decision making.

We are looking for someone with drive, enthusiasm and the knowledge, skills, and experience to help us in the next stage of our journey. This is an exciting opportunity to provide visible and effective leadership and join a passionate and dedicated team with community at its heart.

This is a voluntary role, however any reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the carrying role as board member, will be reimbursed.

If you would like to have an informal conversation about the role, please drop me an email to arrange a call. I can also arrange for you to speak to the current Chair if that would be helpful. The selection process will be overseen by a small Committee of myself or a senior Manager and two Trustees who will report on the process to the full Board.

To apply to be a part of Active Communities’ future, please send a cover letter outlining why you are interested in the role and what you could bring to our Board, and a copy of your CV to before the closing date of Wednesday 30th June 2021.
