Overview

We’re looking for a new Chair of our board of trustees. This is a rare opportunity for the right person to take on a vital role at FPA, helping us achieve our vision of a society where everyone can make positive choices about their own sexual health and wellbeing.

FPA strives to make sure that people across the UK, of all ages and backgrounds, have the information and support they need to make positive choices about their sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing. We do this through our groundbreaking projects and services, our trusted, evidence-based information and educational materials, our awareness campaigns, and our training for professionals.

We advocate and campaign for evidence and needs-based policies and high-quality public services. FPA has a trusted and highly-regarded reputation and nearly 90 years of experience.

The role of Chair offers the chance to combine a passion for promoting the work of FPA with a commitment to effective governance which ensures FPA is able to thrive and grow. As Chair, you’ll be expected to contribute to the public face of FPA through your presence at fundraising and stakeholder events, extending FPA’s existing networks through your own actions and connections.

You’ll encourage all board members to contribute ideas and collectively influence decisions at board meetings. You’ll develop a coherent overview of FPA’s work and provide guidance and support to the Chief Executive in her leadership of staff and delivery of FPA’s operations and activities.

You’ll have demonstrable leadership experience, a track record of enabling an organisation to achieve its goals, strong financial acumen and, of course, a clear commitment to FPA and our work. More details on the skills and experience needed can be found in our application pack.
