We're looking for a Chair

Updated: 12 hours ago

We need someone who can help us take our vision forward, but do it in the right way, a way that fits with our core values. We want a person who can keep an eye on the bigger picture, making sure our strategy is being progressed whilst helping Juno and its team grow and learn.

The Role

As Chair, we’ll need you to share your knowledge and experience to keep our Corporate Governance tight and tidy.

At the heart of your role is:

  • Chairing Board meetings effectively, seeking consensus, balancing the need for full debate on key questions with the expeditious despatch of business to reach clear and agreed decisions as swiftly as possible.

  • Providing the link between the Board and the Shareholders to ensure effective communication and smooth joint working toward agreed goals.

  • Providing mentoring, support, and constructive challenge to the Exec Team

  • Keeping both the Board and the Exec team accountable to ensure they achieve their agreed workplans and to ensure that We Are Juno achieves its purpose in line with its business plan.

  • Making sure we always comply with We Are Juno’s Articles of Association, the Companies Acts, and the highest standards of Corporate Governance.

  • Reviewing our governance structure and processes on an ongoing basis to ensure they are high quality and support We Are Juno to achieve its objectives.

  • Supporting and advising the Board and Exec Team in the development of creative business strategies that help us achieve our objectives.

  • Ensuring that We Are Juno’s resources are allocated and used in the best way possible to achieve our vision.

  • Supporting the Board and wider team in the successful administration of the business.

  • Making sure the organisation keeps to high standards of ethics in how it and its teams approach work both externally and internally.

  • Attending and actively participating in all Board Meetings (unless absence is agreed prior), including reading and carefully considering how you can contribute to all Board papers in advance.

Our Board meetings are normally held at our central Liverpool office, but of course more recently they’ve had to be via Teams. They take place about 6 times a year, however, you will also be asked to attend a monthly meeting with the CEO, attend occasional special purpose meetings or join a subcommittee or working group.

How long would you be appointed for?

Our Chair appointment is approved by the Shareholders on the recommendation of the Board. If successful, you’ll be appointed for an initial one year term.

Are expenses covered?

This is a voluntary position but We Are Juno will cover any out of pocket expenses incurred in the delivery of your duties.

Application deadline: 30th September 2022
