Vice Chair

Vice Chair

Together with Deaf people; creating a better, more accessible future.

The Royal Association for Deaf people (RAD), one of the leading and most dynamic charities working with Deaf people in the UK is about to embark on an exciting period of change and development over the next few years.

We are seeking to recruit a high calibre candidate to join our forward-thinking and engaged Board for the next three years as a Trustee and to fill the role of Vice Chair.

You should have relevant skills and experience, a positive attitude, a desire to make a real difference to Deaf people's lives and an ability to contribute positively to discussion and debate. You will also need to be eligible to be a company director.

We aim to have a wide range of skills and representation amongst our Board of Trustees. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and experience, but feel we are currently under-represented by women and by the BME community.

As Vice Chair you will act for the Chair when they are not available and undertake assignments at the request of the Chair.

The Chair, Vice Chair and Honorary Treasurer form a core group of Honorary Officers who lead on tasks between Trustees' meetings.

This role is unpaid although out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed. Trustees will be expected to attend four Board meetings per year, along with further training days, strategy meetings and committee meetings as necessary.

Additional time to support the activities of the organisation through expert guidance and/or participation in events and activities will be encouraged.
