Job description

Are you an inspirational leader committed to ensuring that we live in a world where children and families meet their full potential in life? If so, you may be interested in joining our board as Chair.

About the role

Yorkshire Children’s Centre (YCC) is a person-centred charity based in Kirklees with a vision of a future where everyone has opportunities for a better life. Since 1974 we have been delivering services across West and South Yorkshire through themes of activity including Specialist Family Services, Education & Training, Early Intervention & Prevention, and Social Enterprise.

Our vision is a future where everyone has opportunities for a better life, underpinned by our values to be Inclusive, Empowering, Caring, Trusted and Approachable which are embedded in everything we do.

With services ranging from our Independent Alternative Provision school (Brian Jackson College), Child Contact Interventions, Domestic Abuse Prevention Programmes and Thriving Kirklees partnership through to our Community Connection services and programmes supporting older people and adults at risk; our services enabled us to support over 2400 people last year with diverse needs across our community.

YCC is now looking for a new Chair to take the organisation forward through the next phase of our strategic development.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for an inspiring, enthusiastic and collaborative leader with a passion for delivering positive change for young people and families.

Our Board is instrumental in ensuring we make a real impact for service users across West and South Yorkshire, while fulfilling all our obligations as a charity. This is a fantastic opportunity to drive strategic change, working with a recently appointed Chief Executive and committed and talented executive and wider staff team.

You will motivate and support our board members and help to create an environment fit to provide the highest quality of services for our service users; ensuring that they are at the heart of everything we do.

Our new Chair will work collaboratively with the Board of Trustees, Chief Executive and leadership team, and be a proactive representative and ambassador in the community, raising the profile of Yorkshire Children’s Centre and its family of services.

With strong commercial acumen and financial awareness, you will also have a proven ability to drive efficiency and performance, introduce innovative ideas and introduce potential sources of funding to secure existing and develop new service areas.

This is a brilliant opportunity to contribute to the future success of a community-centred charity that supports the diverse needs of its community and service users, ensuring that people from birth to older age are provided opportunities for a better life.

YCC is an equal opportunities employer and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We celebrate diversity and applications are actively encouraged from individuals from diverse backgrounds.
