About us

At the Centre for Ageing Better we are focused on bringing about lasting changes in society that make a difference to people’s experience of later life, now and in the future. This means more people in fulfilling work, in good health, living in safe, accessible homes and connected communities. We must act now to secure a better future for everyone, particularly for those approaching later life and at risk of missing out.

About the role

We are further building on the skills of our current Board as we now move into the critical implementation phase of our strategy. We are particularly interested in hearing from people who understand the levers for achieving large scale change and shifts in consumer attitudes and behaviours. We are therefore looking for trustees who can bring at least one of the following:

  • experience of financial management and oversight gained at a senior, strategic level;
  • senior operational leadership experience gained in a large, complex commercial and customer led organisation that serves a diverse population or customer base;
  • experience of gathering and utilising customer insight or promoting products or services to large, diverse customer bases.

We are also interested in hearing from people who are close to the experiences of those living in more deprived communities.

To apply for the role please send your CV or biographical information, as well as a supporting statement that sets our your motivation for applying for the role through Starfish.

The closing date for this role is Monday 13 July 2020.
