Volunteering roles – Chairperson

What will I be doing?

Using your people skills to provide leadership to a valuable local branch of a national charity whose volunteers design and make pieces of equipment for disabled people. You will be the local representative of the charity, raising awareness within your community, giving talks, and fostering relationships with key external stakeholders.


What are we looking for?

We are looking for people who have excellent communication skills and proven experience in leading a team. It is not a requirement that you have engineering experience for this role. In addition to leading the local branch, the chair will increase the charity’s profile, alongside improving the number of referrals and volunteers. The chair will be assisted by a Secretary, Administrator, and Case Officer.


Practical considerations

Good computer skills are essential, along with the ability to travel within the local area for this role. Any out-of-pocket expenses will be paid.

Experience of leading meetings and ability to attend local and regional branch meetings.
