Sanctus in Stoke is looking for a new Chair for its Board

Sanctus cic, Stoke-on-Trent

Voluntary Board Chair

Sanctus provides support for refugees and people who are seeking asylum in the UK. We aim to walk alongside people who find their way to us, from all around the world, in a non-judgmental and safe environment. Refugees and asylum seekers in Stoke-on-Trent are invited to attend one of the drop-in centres for a listening ear, a friendly face, help with bureaucracy, emergency accommodation and assistance with food, baby equipment, English language lessons, translation services - and spiritual care.

Sanctus cic was established in 2014 as a Community Interest Company and is registered with Companies House. The Board of Directors/Trustees presently has eight members which include the posts of Chair, Managing Director, Treasurer and Board Secretary.

The Board holds four formal meetings per annum, with one extra away-day for planning purposes, and works on the basis of formal agendas, minutes and associated papers being available to all Board members. It seeks to operate within good principles of Corporate Governance and the Articles of Association.

We are looking for someone who shares our passion for making a difference to the lives of refugees and asylum seekers, and who has experience in a senior executive role in the charity sector. Using your strong leadership skills and experience of charity governance, you will steer the Board in meeting its strategic aims and objectives.
