Posted on Jan 17, 2019 by Girlguiding
Girlguiding is one of the largest voluntary youth organisations in the UK and more than half of the female population has been involved in guiding at some point in their lives.
Reporting to our Strategy Director, you will ensure Girlguiding adheres to the highest standards of governance practice, act as the governance secretary and manage the flow of governance work, agendas, papers and meetings.
We are looking for a hands on senior specialist, preferably with experience in a federated charity environment, with ICSA or legal training.
If you are highly skilled in building strong, positive and productive relationships with a broad range of stakeholders, have exceptional organisational and planning ability, can convey complex information clearly and succinctly and handle confidential and sensitive matters with tact, diplomacy and confidentiality, we would very much like to hear from you.
Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change - improving attitudes towards mental health. While Girlguiding's young members may be female only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and do not discriminate on the basis of age, disability (physical or mental), gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex, and sexual orientation.
