Overview

Chair

 

Up to three days per month   Central London

 

At the House of St Barnabas (HoSB), our vision is to create a future where lasting work is a reality for those affected by homelessness. Our community is united by a passion for positive social change – as a London charity and social business we believe that by working together we can break the cycle of homelessness. We help people gain and maintain paid work, supporting them on their journey back towards independence, with dignity. Our participants and graduates are at the heart of all we do.

 

This is a pivotal moment in time for us and we are now seeking an exceptional Chair to steer our organisation through the next exciting phase of growth. In this substantial role, you will be responsible for the leadership of the Board and, together with the Board and CEO, play a key role in setting the high-level strategic direction of HoSB to ensure delivery of its mission and key objectives.

 

You will bring substantial experience and personal credibility, gained at the most senior levels of the commercial, public or third sectors. You will already know that achieving through others is the best way to create a bigger impact, whether that is with the other board members and staff team or partnership working with external organisations.

 

Our values are important to us. We’re looking for a Chair who is still curious about the world and considered in their approach to strategic thinking, rigorous when investigating the facts and takes a positive approach to risk. You won’t believe that your postcode and luck of birth determine your opportunities – you will listen, and think, and recognise and support good ideas. You will be an outstanding communicator who is committed to genuine partnership working across sectors and who looks for opportunities to increase our impact that might not be noticed by others.
