About the role/person
We are looking for external Nominations Committee members with strategic vision, independent judgement and commitment to delivering our vision. The committee member(s) will have an independent eye and the ability to challenge and bring fresh ideas to the committee. In particular, we are looking for committee members with experience of developing diversity within organisations to best achieve our strategic aims.
The Nominations Committee is responsible for the recruitment and development of governance and senior volunteer roles within the charity. It is a key body for supporting the strategic direction of Samaritans by ensuring it has the right people to provide effective oversight and direction. The Committee is also a formal advisory committee of the Board of Trustees.
We are seeking applicants who will both support the recruitment of these roles and provide independent and effective advice to help the committee fulfil its responsibilities in:
- recruiting and developing trustees, committee members and senior volunteers;
- supporting the board of trustees to perform to the best of their abilities; and
- providing governance oversight to Samaritans, including board evaluation.
Applicants for these roles will have experience of senior executive or governance roles and have extensive experience in recruitment for senior positions.
At Samaritans, our vision is that fewer people die by suicide. We believe it is preventable and that by working together we can give people the support they need before they reach crisis point. We are one of the most trusted charities in the UK and ROI, and we answer a call for help every six seconds. We have around 175 staff and more than 20,000 volunteers based across 201 branches giving emotional support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We don’t just hear you, we listen.
Our Central Office is located in a converted mill in Ewell, Surrey which is just over 30-minutes by train from Waterloo and 15 minutes from Wimbledon.
