Are you passionate about the gift of voluntary service?

Royal Voluntary Service is a well respected national charity with big plans. An indispensable provider of voluntary service for over 80 years, Royal Voluntary Service has inspired more than three million ordinary men and women to give their time to help address some of the most challenging issues in our society. As our exciting new 5 year strategy gathers momentum, we want our unique philosophy of volunteering to motivate a Britain where millions of people are engaged in voluntary service. Our aim is to help volunteers make the crucial difference where it is most needed in our society; in our communities and in the NHS.

Our current chair will stand down after 7 years in November 2019. We are therefore seeking a dynamic, experienced and committed individual to work with our Board of Trustees and the Leadership Team in the pivitol role of Chair. You will lead the Board of Trustees to ensure that the charity is properly governed and managed with a key focus on maximising the ‘difference that the organisation makes across our society’. With a commitment to both diversity and inclusion and the effective practice of volunteering, you will demonstrate empathy with the vision, mission, aims and values of Royal Voluntary Service.

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 of a medium or large scale organisation. You will have a keen understanding of governance and the ability to combine good judgment with excellent strategic and communication skills. With the capacity to think creatively and offer fresh perspective you will bring the ability to engage at all levels internally and externally. As a visible champion for Royal Voluntary Service, you will interact with a wide range of key stakeholders and be comfortable with public facing engagements.

This is an unpaid voluntary position for which proper and reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed. The initial term will be for three years with the expectation that it will be renewed for a second term of three years.

If you are a proven strategic leader with a clear alignment with our vision, mission and values then we look forward to hearing from you.
