Overview

Sustrans’ mission is to make it easier for people to walk and cycle. We have achieved a lot. The National Cycle Network is just one of our successes.

Sustrans works to connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, and transform our school run and commutes. We believe that fuelling our own travel benefits our health and happiness, our environments, our communities, and our economies. We need a Chair of Trustees who shares our vision and who can help lead us to further success.

Sustrans Chair of Trustees
Unremunerated
Nationwide

We are seeking to appoint a new Chair of Trustees in 2017 and are keen to hear from you if you believe you share our passion and have the skills and experience to fulfil the role.
The successful candidate will be used to operating in a strategic leadership role, able to influence at the highest level and will have had significant governance experience in a commercial or beyond profit organisation. We would particularly welcome applications from those who have experience of leading a large, dynamic, but dispersed organisation.
The role of Chair of Trustees is unremunerated, although reasonable expenses are paid.  The annual commitment will be based around 4-6 Board meetings. Other internal and external inputs lead us to anticipate that the Chair will need to commit a minimum of 12-15 days per year in fulfilling their role.

The Board is committed to diversity in its widest sense and is particularly interested in applications from currently underrepresented groups on our board.

Final panel interview:  Monday 4 September
