Circa £24,000 - Up to three days per month

TrustMark is a not for profit organisation established in 2005. It is the only Government Endorsed Quality Scheme operating in the Retro-fit, Repair, Maintenance and Improvement, and Energy Efficiency sectors. When a consumer uses a TrustMark Registered Business for work in and around their homes, they know they are engaging a business that is committed to the highest standards and has made a significant commitment to good customer service, technical competence, and trading practices.

The Role

The challenges of meeting Net Zero 2050 grow day by day. In the context of our relationship with Government, and our role as part of a complex ecosystem of organisations all working to achieve a common aim, TrustMark is required to provide a key service towards the delivery of quality work in the energy efficiency and low carbon areas. To support the level of engagement in all sectors required to meet this challenge, our new Chair will be a visible and diplomatic figurehead and champion at the helm of our Board and with a range of external partners. 

We are looking for someone with presence and positive personal impact. While prior experience as chair is not strictly essential, you will be able to provide clear and strategic leadership to the Board, ensuring it continues to perform and function as more than the sum of its parts. You will also play a key role in helping to shape our future and may have served on another board within a consumer-oriented organisation or trade federation, regulatory, corporate or FMCG environment. You could also come from parts of the public sector that are relevant to our mission and strategic priorities.

Wherever you are now, you are a strong and effective networker and alliance-builder, with outstanding interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence and a low ego style. You will quickly establish as a respected leader and wise counsel and are already renowned for your objectivity and judgement.
