Since our establishment in 2004, SEA has grown into a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), which provides advocacy to vulnerable people using housing, health and social care services in Nottingham (shire), as well as further afield in the wider East Midlands region. Our work is highly regarded and provides dedicated person-centred support to a diverse range of advocacy partners, who are either vulnerably housed, experiencing homelessness or suffering from social exclusion.
In early October 2021, our Chair stepped down from his role after two successful terms of leadership, which resulted in growth in key areas across the organisation. SEA is committed to continuing this upward trajectory and we are specifically looking to diversify both our reach and service provision, together with developing our income base within the broader health and social care sector.
The Board of Trustees are now seeking to build on this progress by recruiting a dynamic, visionary and forward-thinking Chair who will provide the necessary guidance and strategic direction to ensure that our organisation remains effective and inclusive and continues to thrive.
We are open to UK based applications, providing the applicant can attend Nottingham based quarterly board meetings in person.
