CHEAD is issuing a call for applications for a research focussed co-opted Trustee vacancy arising after CHEAD Trustee elections in April 2020.
Co-opted Trustees have a very important role on the CHEAD Board of Trustees. They share the responsibility for governing CHEAD and directing how it is managed and run. The Board of Trustees appoints a Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer, however all Trustees have a role to keep CHEAD running and to enable it to carry out its range of activities.
Co-opted Trustees are appointed to serve a one year term with all co-options being reviewed by the Board of Trustees in July.
CHEAD is looking for a co-opted Trustee with demonstrable skills in Research Leadership to lead CHEAD’s Research Alliance. The co-opted Trustee would be expected to attend and chair the Research Alliance steering group meetings and work with the CHEAD Director of Membership and Operations and the Director of Policy and External Relations to determine the CHEAD programme of research focussed events and projects. The co-opted Trustee would be expected to attend all CHEAD Trustee meetings where a report on Research Alliance activities would be included.
