Design South East seeks new Trustee with legal experience (no built environment expertise sought)
We believe everyone deserves good design. It is fundamental to quality of life, and to the development of more resilient, healthy and sustainable communities. Working entirely in the public interest, we leverage the power of a network of around 200 experts from a variety of built environment disciplines, leading practitioners and thinkers in their fields, to advise and guide local authorities and their stakeholders; helping them create well designed places.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, managed by a small team supported by our expert panels, associates and specialist contributors.
We are looking for new trustees to join us, and a new chair of the board, to help us grow our influence and deepen our impact.
We are seeking to appoint two or three new trustees, with skills and experience in at least one of the following specific areas:
- Planning, architecture and/or urban design (preferably in the public sector)
- Finance and commerce
- Legal and governance
We do not expect applicants responding to the second and third areas to have a background in the built environment.
Chair of the Board of Trustees
We are also seeking to appoint a new Chair. The successful candidate will be a well-known and highly respected leader in design, architecture, planning and/or development and will also have:
- Experience of influencing government and its agencies
- Significant experience of working for with or with local authorities.
- Previous experience as a non-executive director
Terms of appointment
These are unpaid pro-bono positions, with an anticipated time commitment of 1-2 days per month for the Chair, and about half a day per month for Trustees.
