With The Countess Howe DL stepping down from her role as Chairman in November 2020 to take up her position as Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Heart of Bucks is recruiting for a new Chair of Trustees.

The Chair of Trustees acts as an ambassador and the public face of Heart of Bucks in partnership with the Chief Executive. They hold the Board and Management Team to account for delivery of the charity’s mission and vision, providing inclusive leadership to the Board of Trustees, ensuring that each trustee fulfils their duties and responsibilities for the effective governance of the charity.

Heart of Bucks is looking for an individual with enthusiasm for, and belief in, the value of the community foundation network to which we belong, with the ability to inspire others.

The Countess Howe DL says:

“This is a rewarding and fulfilling voluntary role positioned at the very centre of our Buckinghamshire communities. We aim to support the voluntary sector through targeted grant making, raising the funds from generous philanthropists, businesses and other diverse funding streams. We relish our position as leaders within the community and are committed to developing a sustainable voluntary sector in Bucks. COVID-19 has given rise to increased need and levels of disadvantage, which Heart of Bucks is working hard to alleviate, alongside other voluntary sector organisations in the county.

We are looking for an energetic, committed and capable person to take the charity forward to a new level of engagement in the county. The Board of Trustees, working proactively with the Chair of Trustees, have an excellent rapport with the office team, and we all appreciate the opportunity to give something back to the beautiful county in which we live”.
