Chair of the Board of Trustees - The National Children’s Bureau (NCB)
The National Children’s Bureau (NCB) is recruiting for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees to take up the role in January 2019.
NCB, headquarters in London and an office in Belfast, is a leading national charity and a highly influential and proactive voice for all children and young people, particularly the most vulnerable. We are committed to all children and young people being given equal opportunity to the education, health services and specialist care they need to be safe, secure and to reach their potential. NCB is a dynamic and multifaceted organisation, convening and supporting partnerships between government and charities and between professionals and service providers. In doing so, we apply the best possible evidence to influence policy and support effective implementation of services that are informed by children, young people, their families and communities.
Our new Chair will be joining NCB at an extremely exciting time With the London office moving to a new home and with a dynamic, ambitious strategy to be delivered over the next five years. There will also be challenges to overcome, as faced across the charitable sector, so this is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with demonstrable drive and confidence in a leadership role to steer NCB forward. Strong business acumen and convening skills will be key and organisational financial management and income development experience are desirable. Above all, we are seeking a new Chair who relates to our overarching principles and who is passionate about championing children’s and young people’s rights to ensure their voice is heard, respected and acted upon.
