The Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association has an exciting opportunity for a Governance Manager, to join our corporate Governance function based at our National Office in Northampton, where we operate a 'hybrid working' policy, which enables the flexibilities of splitting your working time, between the workplace and your home.

About the role

Good governance is essential to the successful management of any organisation, and we want to ensure that the MND Association demonstrates best practice in the way we work.

We are seeking an experienced Governance Manager to provide a proactive and developmental approach in delivering the Association's governance arrangements, with a key focus on forward planning and streamlining ways of working whilst ensuring essential compliance requirements are met. You will be responsible for providing support to the Chair, CEO and Directors team to develop the ongoing effectiveness of the Board, enabling it to provide the strategic oversight required as the Association grows

What are we looking for?

Our ideal candidate will have a sound understanding of governance best practice, preferably in the charity sector, proven evidence of managing change. You will be a confident communicator, with great engagement skills and have experience of working at board level with trustees or non-executive directors.

Evidence of sufficient credibility and gravitas to be able to challenge and hold senior managers to account, where appropriate, is essential.

For full role responsibilities please view the job description.

About Us

The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND. The Association also campaigns and raises awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.

We operate a hybrid working environment within a flexible office space using the latest technology and digital infrastructure. This, together with a high level of trust and performance driven culture, gives staff the freedom and flexibility to work in the best way for them, the Association and, most importantly, people with MND.

We are committed to equality and value diversity. We are working hard to remove perceived and actual barriers to participation for people with and affected by MND, current and future staff, volunteers and stakeholders.

Important Notices

This role is currently based remotely due to the covid pandemic. In normal circumstances this role will be based at our national office in Northampton with an option for hybrid working.

Please submit your application as soon as possible; due to the high volumes of applications we receive, we reserve the right to close any adverts before the closing date once we have received sufficient applications.

Our selection process will be multi-stage; this may include video call screening, psychometric assessments, and competency-based interview/s.

We request that recruitment agencies do not contact us in relation to this role. We work hard to fill our roles directly and if assistance is required, we operate a PSL, which currently closed for review. We do not accept speculative CVs from recruitment agencies/ head-hunters.
