Closing Date

Time Commitment
Please enquire on application

Young Citizens is a national charity that helps educate, inspire, and empower young people to take their place in society as engaged and active citizens. The new Chair will lead a dynamic board starting on a new strategic journey which will require the organisation to go through a period of significant growth and development.

The Chair will make an important contribution to the effective running of the charity helping to develop strategy, providing effective oversight of the business plan and scrutinising performance. In carrying out this role, the Chair of Trustees must promote the highest standards of corporate governance, and they should have the skills to offer constructive challenge and support to the CEO and executive team.

We are looking for an individual who has:

* An interest and understanding of issues affecting the lives of children and young people

* Drive and commitment to support development of the Board

* Proven ability to steer an organisation through a time of exciting opportunity, transition, and development.

We are seeking a leader who is ambitious on behalf of the charity and champions its work as a leader in the citizenship education and youth sectors. You will have strong interpersonal and relationship-building skills and a strong track record governing complex organisations through change. We are open to your professional background as long as you bring effective governance experience and strategic thinking.

We warmly welcome candidates from all backgrounds to apply for the Chair role. We are looking for individuals to culturally add to this organisation rather than fit an existing cultural mould.
