Unremunerated, approximately 10 days per year

We are one of the leading work-based learning providers in England and Wales.  Currently working with over 3800 businesses, we train more apprentices than anyone else in the building services engineering sector.  Over 8,000 young people are supported by us across electrical, plumbing, heating and ventilating and engineering maintenance disciplines.  Our apprentices achieve more – because we only take on the best and as a registered charity, every penny we receive goes into the training we offer.

We believe that our work builds futures and changes lives, and our immediate aspirations are to continue to improve the quality of our apprenticeships, contribute to a more diverse and inclusive sector,  better serve our employers and continue to improve our market share.  We have a highly effective senior leadership team and board, however, with our current Chair’s departure, we need the right non-executive leadership to help us realise our goals.  Our  members are from Unite the Union, the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) and independent Trustees and as Chair you will play a vital role in ensuring the effective governance of the organisation.

You will bring a strong network across relevant areas and know how to successfully navigate your way across a complex stakeholder map, including government, working effectively with some of our key partners and stakeholders.  Possessing a clear appreciation of what good governance looks like; you will bring a strong track record of operating as a non-executive, ideally with some Chair experience. Your ambition and drive to work with us, to achieve our aspirations as well as your resilience and leadership credentials, will set you apart.

These are exciting times for us as an organisation as we continue to build on the positive steps that we have taken coming out of the challenging last two years.  For further information about this opportunity and to apply, please click Apply.
