Could you steer our board?

With the wonderful Catherine Brown soon to stand down (doesn’t time fly?), we currently have a vacancy for a Chair of Trustees to provide leadership to our board as we stride into our 20th year as an organisation. It’s an exciting and unique possibility for the right person.

An independent board, helping to steer our direction, is a crucial part of how mySociety operates as a charity. We believe that this opportunity offers experiences quite unlike any you’re likely to find elsewhere, and will prove rewarding to the right candidate.

Might that be you, or someone we know? We’d appreciate you sharing this vacancy far and wide, with the aim of reaching beyond our own familiar networks.

As ever, we want to bring in board members from a range of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Our tools are used by multiple, intersecting demographics, and the composition of our board of trustees who set the strategic direction of our organisation should reflect this reality.

Please do check out our job listing or peruse our recruitment pack, where you’ll discover a lot more about the kind of person we’re looking for, and instructions for how to apply.

And even if you don’t fulfil every requirement outlined in the job description, we’d still encourage you to apply – we are committed to nurturing and aiding the development of our board members.
