We are looking for a new Chair of our board of company directors to lead the governance of the organisation. Currently we have a board of five members, some of whom will be standing down in the near future, and we are looking to grow and diversify the board’s membership alongside recruiting a new Chair. 

This is an exciting time for NEON as we are coming to the end of our three-year 2017-2020 strategy and developing our new strategy to take us through to 2023. We want a Chair who is excited and motivated by NEON’s vision and approach and is willing to offer their time, experience, strategic input and guidance to help us develop as an organisation.
