We’re seeking diversity of professional and personal experience as we know that this enriches our work. We would like you to consider expressing your interest for the role even if you have some, but not all, the experience listed in the candidate pack. Most important for us is that you bring energy, insight, creativity and the determination to grow and scale new solutions to big social challenges.
What will you be doing?
The role of each of our Board Directors is to provide a creative contribution to the board by offering independent oversight and impartial, constructive challenge to the executive team.
As a non-executive board, it is our collective responsibility to:
Provide strategic guidance - offering a creative and well-informed contribution to strategy development and acting as a constructive critic in looking at the objectives and plans devised by the Chief Executive, Sarah Gillinson, and the leadership team.
Be a constructive partner to the CEO and other staff members - building a trusting, cohesive relationship as the ‘top leadership team’, and providing challenge and support for the progress of the organisation.
Facilitate and sustain good governance - ensuring delivery of Innovation Unit’s purpose and appropriate allocation of resources, and overseeing decision-making, accountability and risk-management.
Influence and collaborate with stakeholders - understanding the environment and systems that the Innovation Unit operates within, and collaborating with others to collectively achieve the biggest positive impact.

We seek new board directors to help guide us in the delivery of our mission and strategy. Our current board brings outstanding expertise and experience in innovation and in many of our key areas of impact.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion - in the context of becoming an anti-racist organisation we are looking for someone who can offer strategic guidance and new perspectives on tackling inequalities within our organisation and through our work.
Fundraising - we would welcome someone who has deep knowledge, strategic experience and credibility of generating investment from trusts and foundations. Expanding this aspect of our portfolio is central to our ability to drive, proactively, the change we want to see in the world.
Community power - with our expanding work in place-based transformation, we are looking for someone with experience, understanding and networks of community powered solutions that improve lives and push the systems around them to change too.
Health & Care Inequalities - our work in health is increasingly concerned with tackling the social determinants of health, and their significance in addressing persistent inequalities. We would love to bolster the excellent insight, expertise and networks of our team in this area through the board.
If you have other specialist knowledge you feel could be relevant and complementary to our current Board, we would be delighted to explore your suitability for the role. All candidates should have a passion for social change - and experience or understanding of what it takes to embed and spread radical change in practice.
We also would like you to be:
strongly aligned with our values
personally motivated to make a positive difference to others
ready to contribute fully
able to collaborate closely with colleagues
a strategic thinker who can see the big picture and navigate complex and contentious issues
progressive and innovative, capable of stimulating, challenging and influencing others to contemplate and consider different solutions
