Seeking proven strategic leader with a clear alignment with our vision, mission and values

Trustee / Committee volunteer needed for Autism at Kingwood in RG6

Our current chair has now stood down, therefore Autism at Kingwood are seeking a dynamic, experienced and committed individual to work with our Board of Trustees and the Senior Leadership Team in the pivotal role of Chair.

We are looking for someone with a track record of success in strategic and operational leadership and experience as a non-executive director, Trustee or Chair. You will have a keen understanding of governance and the ability to combine good judgement with excellent strategic and communication skills. You may already be a Chair of Trustees, or looking for the opportunity to chair your first board. You will lead the Board of Trustees to ensure that the charity is properly governed and managed with a key focus on maximising the ‘quality of life for autistic adults’.
With the capacity to think creatively and offer fresh perspective you will bring the ability to reimburse. The initial term will be for three years with the expectation that it will be renewed for a second term of three years.

Full and further details can be downloaded from our website www.kingwood.org.uk or download a role description here.

We believe the successful candidate will enjoy working with the Autism at Kingwood team, and will find involvement with the charity and its work very rewarding.
