Vacancy: Chair of Trustees

Do you want to make a difference?

The Military Wives Choirs Foundation is looking to recruit a strong strategic thinker and leader to be the Chair of Trustees and to take us on the next stage of our journey at the charity.

No Ordinary Charity

The Military Wives Choirs network brings women in the military community closer together through singing. Being part of the network of some 74 Military Wives Choirs around the UK and abroad makes a positive difference by improving well-being, building friendships and developing skills. Trustees work to strengthen and sustain our network of choirs for the benefit of generations to come, wherever our Armed Forces and their families are based.

If you have a passion for, and empathise with, our aim to improve the lives of women in the military community through singing, then consider leading the Board to deliver change for choir members.

No Ordinary Role

As the Chair of the Board you will share legal responsibility for the charity, ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and delivering on its charitable outcomes for which it has been set up. To do this, you will use your personal skills and experience as needed to ensure that the charity is well managed, efficient and effective.

A Simple Process

At this stage, we require a copy of your CV and a one page letter describing your interest in the charity and what you will bring to the leadership of the Board.

We will then be in touch to arrange a discussion.  Board members are currently required to attend at least two meetings in London per annum, the others can be attended via conference call. Reasonable expenses will be paid.
