Leeds Mencap is an aspirational charity based in East Leeds that operates citywide and provides services and activities to improve the lives and opportunities of those with a learning disability along with their families and carers. We are looking for an experienced, well networked and commercially astute individual to act as Interim Chair.

Leeds Mencap has recently experienced a period of change as part of which the Trustees and Chief Executive have undertaken a full review of Leeds Mencap’s strategy and operations. The Interim Chair’s priority will be to oversee the successful delivery of the recently agreed strategy which will include ensuring there is an effective board of trustees and a sustainable financial platform from which to move forward thereafter.

We are looking for an individual with a strong commercial focus who has experience in undertaking short-term roles and overseeing project delivery and organisational change. Raising the profile of Leeds Mencap is a central part of the role and we need someone who is willing to use their networks to support this development. An understanding of and commitment to Leeds Mencap’s cause is essential and experience of charity governance issues would be an advantage. 

In undertaking the role you will be working with a loyal and committed team and will set the charity on a pathway that enables it to continue to provide vital support to people with learning disabilities into the future.
