Trustees are keen to hear from anyone who might like to know more about the Chair of the Trustees role. Our current Chair has headed up the team since 2019, through the toughest of times and to a new era of multi-year funding which has transformed the organisation.
We are committed to ensuring all those keen to take up a leadership role are given a chance to do so no matter what experience or qualifications, we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for someone who has a passion for the organisation’s current impact and extending that plus empowering the amputee community and for making a difference day to day. We would be open to consider Co Chairs as a handover period if that might suit some better or for longer if needs be.
If being a Trustee or Chair intrigues you please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. The more amputee voices we have on the Board the better as well as maintaining transparency.
