UK Cyber Security Council seeks new Trustees
Four Trustees are sought to join the existing Board and newly appointed Chief Executive (currently being recruited) in further developing the Council’s strategy and growing awareness of, and engagement with, the Council amongst key stakeholders. This will include the first members of the Council from September 2021. The Trustees will be instrumental in ensuring that The Council values equality, diversity and inclusion, acts with integrity, fairness and impartiality, and is informed, collaborative, straightforward, honest, lawful, and accountable in all its dealings, decisions and actions.
The UK Cyber Security Council are looking for candidates who have a strong empathy with their vision and mission, combined with an in-depth understanding of their work and ambitions. Previous Trustee experience, as well as an understanding of the culture and needs of mission- and values-driven organizations, are particularly sought. A cyber security background is not essential, nor is it necessary to be a ‘technical expert’.
