Member & Chair of Audit Committee

Skills for Care
London & Leeds
Unremunerated with expenses covered

Skills for Care is the strategic workforce development and planning body for adult social care in England. We work with employers, Government, and partners to ensure social care has the right people, skills, and support required to deliver the highest quality care and support, now and in the future.


We are seeking to appoint two new Trustees to join the Board – one experienced leader to chair our Audit & Risk Committee and a second leader whose strategic financial management skills will enable us to deliver our ambitious agenda.

For our Audit and Risk Chair you will have strong experience in an audit role and have a proven ability to provide strategic oversight to the organisation, provide support and challenge to the Leadership Team, ensure good governance and rigorously monitor the company’s performance and controls. Our other trustee will bring evident strategic leadership skills with a good grasp of finance and organisational development. We are a substantial organisation of c£40m turnover and 200 people and you will be comfortable operating in an organisation of at least a similar size.

We are committed to finding at least one of our new trustees with lived experience of receiving social care – either personally or through a close family member. Your personal experience and insight will be invaluable as we deepen our impact across the sector. It goes without saying that as trustees of Skills for Care you will be advocates of social care and committed to achieving positive change for people who both work in and receive social care.

Whatever your background you will share our passion for the sector and our vision for a diverse and inclusive social care workforce that is supported and equipped to deliver their very best. This is a role rich in both complexity and opportunity.
