The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has begun the search for a new chair for its trustee board.
The next chair, who will take up the post in November 2020, will join the organisation as it concludes a lengthy strategic review process. The charity representative body said today the new chair would be instrumental in defining how NCVO’s core purpose, values and ambitions will be translated into tangible action.
The open application process will be led by NCVO’s president, Jill Pitkeathley, and is being managed by executive search consultancy firm Green Park. The deadline for applications is Monday 16 March 2019.
Baroness Pitkeathley will be joined on a selection panel by NCVO’s co vice chairs, Julie Bentley and Vanessa Griffiths, along with governance expert and former NCVO trustee Jules Mason. Their recommended candidate will be put to NCVO’s annual general meeting in November for approval.
The chair role is currently being filled on an interim basis by Anne Heal after Peter Kellner stood down at the end of his term of office in the summer.
Baroness Pitkeathley said:
"The new chair will join the organisation at a crucial time for charities and volunteering. NCVO’s work is more vital than ever, providing practical support to thousands of members while also shaping a wider policy environment that enables charities and volunteering to thrive. This is a challenging role but an immensely rewarding one."
