Within this context World Vision UK is seeking to appoint new Trustees to join with us in bringing additional expertise, energy and commitment to our work.

A unique and exceptional opportunity to Chair Heneb: the Trust for Welsh Archaeology at the formation of this brand-new trust that oversees the newly-merged four Welsh Archaeological Trusts.
Applications close at: 9 a.m. Wednesday 10th January 2024
Location: Remote with occasional visits to Trust offices across Wales
About Heneb: the Trust for Welsh Archaeology
Heneb: the Trust for Welsh Archaeology will unite the four Welsh Archaeological Trusts. These comprise:
- Glamorgan Gwent
- Clwyd Powys
The four Welsh Archaeological Trusts were established in 1974-75 to help conserve, understand and interpret the archaeology of Wales. Although originally conceived as reactive bodies, responding to threats to the archaeological resource, the four Trusts have evolved over time to be more proactive and to broaden their remit.
The Trusts have flourished for five decades by maintaining their core values through service to their respective regions, whilst adapting to changing circumstances and modernising to meet challenges. As a result, they have continued through changes in national and local Government organisation, the new Welsh historic environment legislation and regulation and the professionalisation of archaeology that has revolutionised practice. At a local level, the Trust has worked with communities in developing a mutual appreciation of their heritage and fostering “pride of place”.
The four Trusts have recently agreed to merge to form a single regionally-based national trust to serve the best long-term interests of the people of Wales in the care of archaeology in Wales. The newly formed Trust for Welsh Archaeology (Heneb) will be a more robust, sustainable and energised organisation able to respond to changing challenges and to take opportunities for growth, specialisation and innovation.
About the role
The Chair and CEO of this newly-formed organisation will have the exciting and exacting responsibility for setting its tone from the outset and leading Trustees, staff and volunteers along new avenues, ensuring that the established strengths of the four regional Trusts are maintained while extending their remit and expertise delivering a wide range of archaeological services and raising the organisation’s national profile.
This role provides an exciting opportunity for a collaborative and engaging leader with a commitment to Welsh cultural heritage to lead a newly formed Board of Trustees to develop the organisation and guide the Trust along new avenues to deliver its strategy into the future.
Together, the Chair and CEO will set the tone for the whole organisation, championing the Trust’s values of inclusive, open and accountable leadership.
Leading the Board of Trustees of the newly-formed Trust, the Chair will ensure it delivers its charitable objective to advance the education of the public in archaeology. The Chair will steer the strategic direction of the Trust, engaging with national strategic partners in the historic environment sector and seeking opportunities for effective collaboration.
The Chair should be able to visit the Trust and its regional offices and projects from time to time; reasonable expenses will be paid for doing so. Communication takes place mainly via email, with conferencing software used for some meetings.
The Chair’s first task will be to support the CEO to unite the four pre-existing Regional Trusts to form a successful, regionally-based body. The Chair will oversee the expansion of the Board, ensuring new governance arrangements are well-established.
Promoting a culture of openness and debate, the Chair is responsible for leading the Board to ensure effectiveness in all aspects of its role. Together with the CEO, they will ensure a culture of transparency and openness in which staff are respected and empowered.
They will cultivate effective communication between the Board and regional advisory panels, and between the Trustees and the Executive. Alongside the CEO, the Chair will mentor the team and will ensure the Board considers key issues and opportunities facing the Trust, championing equity, diversity and inclusion.
The Chair will work collaboratively with the CEO and Board of Trustees to develop the vision, strategy and business plan for the Trust. The Chair will ensure that the voice of the regions is heard, and regional interests are considered in a balanced way in forming policy and strategy.
The Chair will be a key conduit in ensuring consistent engagement with funding bodies and stakeholders and will promote the vision, philosophy and achievements of the Trust, representing the views of the Board to the public. They will ensure effective engagement and communication with the Welsh Government and Cadw and other stakeholders such as local authorities and RCAHMW.
The new Chair will ensure the Trust reports to the Welsh Government, stakeholders and clients and will promote outreach to new communities in Wales.
Who we are looking for
The Trust is seeking a highly motivated Chair who possesses high standards of integrity and probity in governance, decision-making and financial management.
The new Chair will be a person of the highest integrity, recognised for their contribution to public service in Wales, particularly in archaeology, heritage, or culture.
With an informed interest (or the ability to develop it) in the archaeology, architectural history, history and the historic environment of Wales, and the role of local and national government and the voluntary sector in its management.
An experienced, empathetic and diplomatic leader with strong interpersonal, communication, collaboration and negotiation skills, they will have experience in developing trusted relationships with senior Government officials and elected representatives. Exhibiting a high degree of emotional intelligence, they will have experience in leading and motivating teams and in overseeing the development of strategies, plans and budgets.
With experience in overseeing strategic change, including modelling vision, values and behaviours, they will have an understanding of charity and company law with an awareness and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of Trusteeship.
With a willingness to advance the language and culture of Wales, they will bring an understanding of the requirements of Welsh language legislation.

Board code of conduct
This Code applies to all Trustees of the NEF, including the Chair. It is not a list of Trustees’ legal duties, although many of the elements of the Code are based on legal principles. The purpose of the Code is to set out the relevant standards expected of Trustees in order to maintain the highest standards of integrity and stewardship; to ensure that the organisation is effective, open and accountable; and to ensure a good working relationship with the Chief Executive and staff.
• Trustees should act with probity, due prudence and should take and consider professional advice on anything in which the Trustees do not have expertise themselves.
• Trustees should hold themselves accountable to the NEF’s stakeholders, including funders, beneficiaries and employees, for the Board’s decisions, the performance of the Board and the performance of the charity.
• When acting as Trustees, Trustees accept that their primary responsibility is to the NEF, not to their employer, client or any other organisation which they represent or are otherwise connected with.
• Trustees must declare any employment, commercial, financial or other obligation to outside individuals or organisations that might influence their performance of official duties, and must ensure any potential conflict of interest is made known at the earliest possible opportunity.
• Except where legally authorised and confirmed in writing, Trustees must not gain financial or other material benefit for themselves, their families or their friends from their Trusteeship of the charity.
• Trustees must fulfil the responsibilities set out in the Job Description above, and comply with the terms in their contract, including written policies on claiming expenses.
• Trustees should conduct themselves in a manner which does not damage or undermine the reputation of the charity, or its staff individually or collectively, and should not take part in any activity which is in conflict with the objects or which might damage the reputation of the NEF.
• Trustees must work together as a team, make decisions together and take joint responsibility for them.
• Trustees are expected to attend a minimum of four Board meetings a year, and are required to attend the Annual General Meeting. Meeting dates are circulated 12 months in advance and any conflict with other arrangements should be confirmed well in advance and not just prior to a meeting.
• Trustees must ensure they prepare for and contribute appropriately and effectively at meetings. They must respond promptly and fully to email and other requests for input, feedback or assistance, and ensure they can commit sufficient time to their duties.
• Trustees should bring a fair and open-minded view to all discussions of the Board and should ensure that all decisions are made in the best interests of the NEF and its charitable objectives.
• Confidential information or material (relating to funders, beneficiaries, staff, contracts etc) provided to, or discussed at a Trustees meeting, must remain confidential and within the confines of the Board and must not be discussed or disclosed outside the Board without the Board’s prior permission (save where required by law).
• Policies and strategies agreed by Trustees should be expressed in unambiguous and practical terms, so that the Chief Executive and NEF staff responsible for implementing those policies are clear what they need to do.
• Trustees must understand, accept and respect the difference in roles between the Trustees, the Chief Executive and NEF Mark staff, working effectively and cohesively for the benefit of the charity, and to develop a mutually supportive and loyal relationship.
