The Chair and the other members of the NTfW Executive Board are responsible for steering and developing the overall work of the organisation, while the Director of Operations will manage its day to day operation.

The appointment will be for an initial term of up to three years. You may be eligible for re-appointment for a further term, although this is not automatic and should not be assumed. The power to re-appoint the Chair rests with the NTfW Executive Board members who have the discretion to decide whether or not to offer an appointment.

Accountability: The Chair will be appointed by representatives of the existing NTfW Board and will be accountable to the Board for carrying out their duties and for their performance.
Remuneration: The post of Chair is remunerated at circa £400.00 per day (subject to discussion at interview) for a time commitment in the region of 5 days per month. You will be entitled to claim travel and other reasonable expenses incurred in carrying out work in accordance with NTfW Travel and Subsistence Policy.
