Who we are
The Retreat Association is a Christian-based organisation which helps people take time out. This is an exciting opportunity to join the charity at a key stage in its development and to make a real difference within a small, dedicated team.
The main duties of the role would be to advise the Retreat Association’s Executive Director and Trustees on strategic development and governance, enabling the charity to build on its achievements and to be as effective as possible in its activities.
We are seeking someone with at least 5 years experience in governance and strategic planning, including previous experience as a charity trustee. They would also need to be a practising Christian who is sympathetic to the work of the RA and able to share the vision of offering support to those looking for stillness and silence in their lives. They would need to be able to work collaboratively with the Retreat Association’s Executive Director and Trustees and be an effective communicator.
The trustees meet 4 times a year (daytime, usually in London but currently online). This appointment could also involve membership of the operations sub-committee, which meets 4 times a year.
