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
Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Anna Dixon, and our new Chair, Dame Carol Black, we are focused on having a significant impact across England by being bolder in calling for change, being highly effective at influencing a wide range of stakeholders, including the private sector, developing and maintaining impactful partnerships to deliver the changes, and continuing to develop a strong analysis and evidence base to support the changes we want to see.
We are further building on the skills of our current Board as we move into the critical implementation phase of our Strategy. We are looking for up to three trustees and are currently prioritising applicants who offer experience of operational delivery within the private sector (ideally gained in large, complex organisations). We are very interested in hearing from people who have worked in environments where there is a need to address demand from particularly large, diverse audiences, such as advertising, retail or utilities. You will be clear and confident in the role of governing a charity and passionate about ensuring we deliver the impact and change we were created for. We are actively improving the diversity of our Board with a focus on broadening our ethnic mix, age profile and cognitive diversity.
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.
