This is a unique opportunity to join an historic global organisation committed to promoting and facilitating humanitarian and charitable work for those who need it most. The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem - the “Order” - is an Order of Chivalry with Her Majesty the Queen as its Sovereign Head. It is also a Christian confraternity and a UK registered Charity. The Order encompasses over 40 independent St John Establishments around the world with over 400,000 volunteers and staff working towards the Order’s mission of charitable service.
The Order is now seeking to appoint a Lord Prior as the most senior non-royal member of the Order of Chivalry to lead the organisation to the next stage in its development. This role is unique, playing a significant role across the Order’s activities, acting as Chair to the Order’s Grand Council, the Steering Committee and UK registered charity, and working to set the strategic direction across all aspects of the Order nationally and internationally.
Candidates should bring experience of leadership at executive level of a highly dispersed global or national organisation and significant chairing experience, ideally with experience of working with volunteer-led organisations. They will be able to demonstrate a strong engagement with the Order’s values and mission.
