National charity BASIS is seeking to recruit a Chair for the Board of Trustees, starting in April 2020.
Whoever is selected, will play a vital role in the running of the charity as it looks to support and develop the agricultural and associated industries with training and professional development, explained BASIS CEO, Stephen Jacob.
“We’re looking for an experienced manager who can demonstrate being a team player, and potentially has experience of land-based or related industries, but this isn’t vital. It’s essential the candidate is independent and not involved in those industries which BASIS serves,” said Mr Jacob.
“In total, the role requires a commitment of 20 to 40 days a year, including three Board meetings per annum.
“In addition, the Chair will be expected to attend the finance and remuneration committee and meet regularly with myself and other senior staff members.”
The role may be fulfilled from any location in Great Britain, and as with all trustees of BASIS, the Chair will be appointed for an initial three-year term and may then, subject to annual Board approval serve up to four more years.
An honorarium will be paid along with reasonable out of pocket expenses for travel and accommodation.
BASIS current Chair, Chris Clarke will have successfully completed the maximum seven-year term when he retires in 2020.
