Chair of the Board of Trustees

We believe that evidence informed policy-making and practice can, and does, improve the lives of people affected by homelessness. The Centre was created in 2018 to be an independent champion of using rigorous evidence to underpin policies and programmes that aim to tackle or prevent homelessness.
For the past eleven months we have been hosted by our founding partners at Crisis and GHN and supported and guided by a Shadow Board, but aim to become a fully independent Charity by the summer of 2019. The building blocks and timeline to achieve this are well developed.
We are now looking for an exceptional new Chair who can lead the transition of the Shadow Board into a Trustee Board and steer the Centre in the right direction to achieve its ambitious goals and maximise the impact of its work.
A recruiting pack including background information, job description, person specification and application details is available to download here.
Applications close at 12pm, Monday 12th November 2018. Interviews will take place in late November (possible dates include Nov 22nd and 27th).
We are committed to safer recruitment practice and pre-selection checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed. The role is subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service disclosure.
