Board of Trustees Chair

Closing Date: 30th Jun 2024
Receptionist and Workspace Coordinator

Employment Type: Volunteer

The Chair has the overall purpose of leading the Board, ensuring systems are in place to provide trustees with the support they need to carry out their role effectively and enabling trustees to fulfil their responsibilities for the overall governance and strategic direction of the organisation. This will be done in accordance with the relevant legal and regulatory guidelines/requirements.

METRO is recruiting for a new Chair to lead the charity’s voluntary Board of Trustees. The charity is in a period of dynamic change, where we are proactively seeking to become an actively anti-racist organisation. We are working to support changes around EDI issues in several ways, and we are seeking a new Chair who can support this development and has experience of leadership around these issues. The role is currently being held on an interim basis by an existing trustee who is willing to handover when the right recruit is in place.

We want to create an environment in which intersectional identities are valued and represented across the team, especially in our senior roles while fulfilling METRO’s constitutional stipulation for majority LGBTQ+ identifying staff and trustee teams. This intersectionality includes, but is not limited to, people of colour, young people, gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, non-binary, gender-fluid and gender-diverse people, and people with lived experience of socio-economic inequities.

Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.
