Great Western Air Ambulance Charity saves lives in our communities, but we could help even more people. Why wouldn’t you want to be our next Chair of Trustees?

We’re looking for an experienced Trustee who knows how excellent Boards work, how to get the very best out of great people, and how to help wonderful organisations become even better. We need someone who is a natural networker and people-person, who can understand complex information, and can ask key questions in a way that is as supportive as it is challenging. But most importantly, our new Chair will need to share our Values – we pride ourselves on being Collaborative, Dedicated, Curious and Compassionate.

We don’t ask for a big time commitment as we have a professional management team who take full responsibility for the week-to-week running of the charity, but we do need someone who has the time and space to carry out this role well. So although the average might be a couple of hours a week, this can be really variable and you will need to be able to make time in the working day occasionally, with good notice.

We try to meet in person, as collaboration is better that way, and you will need to get out and about from time to time to meet key stakeholders or attend events. Due to this, and the need to understand our communities and help us reach more people, you will need to be local – we cover Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and parts of Wiltshire.

Application deadline: 09:00 on Monday 8 July.
