Job description

We are seeking a committed, experienced and strategic Chair to lead our charity as we enter the next stage of our organisation's evolution. We have big plans and ambitions and want someone to help steer us through a time of opportunity and challenge for our sector.

This is the dawn of an exciting era of growth and change. We've just introduced a new profit-for purpose commercial counselling and therapy subsidiary, and our charity is beginning an ambitious national expansion journey. We're in search of a Chair who can offer strong direction, creating opportunities to continue this growth and help us accomplish our strategic objectives.

As The Chair of the Board of Trustees you will have the opportunity to:

• Set the vision, mission and standards of the organisation
• Ensure that the organisation pursues its objectives as defined in its governing
document
• Make sure that the organisation applies its resources exclusively in pursuance of
its objectives
• Safeguard and promote the good name and values of the organisation
• Guarantee the organisation’s administration is both effective and efficient
• Secure the financial stability of the organisation
• Protect and manage the charity’s property and ensure the proper investment of
its funds

You’ll lead the governance and direction of TLC alongside a team of trusted senior professionals.

You’ll have full access to all necessary training and reimbursable expenses, and the chance to actively improve the health and wellbeing of people across the UK. 

Whether you’re an experienced Chair or an experienced Board member looking to take your first step into chairing a charity, we want to hear from you.
