Our current chairman will stand down June 2019, therefore Autism at Kingwood is seeking a dynamic, experienced and committed individual to work with our Board of Trustees and the Senior Leadership Team in the pivotal role of Chairman.

We are looking for someone with a track record of success in strategic and operational leadership and experience as a non-executive director, Trustee or Chairman. You will have a keen understanding of governance and the ability to combine good judgement with excellent strategic and communication skills. You may already be a Chairman of Trustees, or looking for the opportunity to chair your first board. You will lead the Board of Trustees to ensure that the charity is properly governed and managed with a key focus on maximising the ‘quality of life for autistic adults’.

With the capacity to think creatively and offer fresh perspective you will bring the ability to engage at all levels internally and externally.

This is an unpaid voluntary position for which proper and reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed. The initial term will be for three years with the expectation that it will be renewed for a second term of three years. 

Full and further details

We believe the successful candidate will enjoy working with the Autism at Kingwood team, and will find involvement with the charity and its work very rewarding. If you are a proven strategic leader with a clear alignment with our vision, mission and values then we look forward to hearing from you.

Autism at Kingwood is a registered Charity, limited by guarantee, providing support to adults on the autistic spectrum to lead happy and fulfilled lives in the community.  With a Head Office based in Lower Earley just off the M4 and a turnover of £6 million we work across the Thames Valley, in the counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.  The charity employs almost 300 staff providing support to approximately 140 adults with autism and provides advice and guidance to more than 250 people with Asperger Syndrome each year.

The impending rotation of Trustees has created opportunities for interested parties to join the Autism at Kingwood Board. Whilst we welcome applications from all individuals who feel that have skills to so share, an individual with experience or interest in Human Resources, fundraising or communications, or a clinical background may be of benefit to the charity.

The Board meets in Reading four times a year and the charity’s governance also benefits from sub-committee meetings. Please see the attached brief for more information about Autism at Kingwood and the role.

We are keen to achieve a more diverse Board of Trustees and we welcome applications from all sections and ethnic backgrounds of the community. Unfortunately in order to preserve the confidentiality of people we support we do not accept applicants whose relative is receiving support from Kingwood.

To express an interest and to apply for this role, please send a CV plus written statement of no more than 500 words to support your application to info@kingwood.org.uk.

Please consider the role of the trustee and share the attributes, skills and experiences you would bring to the role. If you wish to find out more please contact Sandy Meadows, Vice Chairman, at sandy@saxonbury.com or 07770 622524.
