Who we are

Hackney CVS is a great place to work. Our friendly and diverse staff team are committed to challenging health and social inequalities and to making Hackney a fairer borough. We enjoy an inclusive work culture, a lovely garden, generous holiday allowance, and much more!

We empower local charities and community groups to develop sustainable and financially viable solutions to the long-term challenges facing City and Hackney residents.

The role

​We are seeking a new Chair who will lead us through our next chapter. You will have a strong understanding of the voluntary and community sector and will share our values of social justice and fairness.

You will bring your experience as Chair, or as a trustee ready for your first Chair position, to lead the board in overseeing the success of the Charity. Ideally you will have connections to and an understanding of Hackney and its communities.

You will join and lead a committed, highly skilled, diverse, and experienced Board, and an organisation that is dedicated to creating a fairer society. We strive to ensure our Board of Trustees reflects the communities we support through our work and are aware of the under-representation of certain groups in the sector. We therefore very much welcome applications from people from Black & Global Majority backgrounds, disabled people and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
