Tommy’s has been driving change and saving babies’ lives for over 30 years. In that time, we’ve been there for families at every stage of their pregnancy journey and built a very special community of support. Our bold ambition is to stop the heartbreak and devastation of baby loss and make pregnancy and birth safe – for everyone. To achieve that, over the last year Tommy’s has developed an exciting new strategy to grow evidence, improve care, tackle inequities, and mobilise for change.
This is a pivotal point in our evolution and we are now seeking a new Chair to lead our Board and support our Chief Executive to drive the charity’s growth and impact. You will play a central role in helping to achieve our aims, working with excellent colleagues across the Board of Trustees and the wider staff team.
We are looking for an exceptional individual for this role. You will be highly ambitious for and committed to our cause, with strong strategic leadership experience, a collaborative approach, along with demonstrable experience of leading high calibre teams and supporting organisations to grow impact. You will bring an excellent understanding of good governance, strong commercial acumen, sound judgement, and be comfortable navigating a complex environment. You will also be a first-class communicator and ambassador for the charity, comfortable with representing the charity to various audiences.
We are very committed to increasing the diversity of our teams and welcome applications from all sectors and backgrounds. You need not have been a charity Chair before, but you will bring considerable non-Executive or Trustee experience gained on high calibre boards, ideally as Chair, Vice Chair or with experience of chairing sub-committees.
