    Gardening Leave searches for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees

    We seek a strong Chair to take the organisation forward.  The key duties are to:

    • Work in partnership with the Chief Executive to set a strategic vision for the organisation and steer its achievement.
    • Represent the charity with outside bodies.

    You will have previous experience of working at Board level and strong leadership and strategic abilities combined with deep business experience.  Knowledge of the Armed Services and/or the Mental Health sector will be an advantage.  Due to the wide operation of the charity, the appointment of Chair is open to suitable individuals from across the UK.
