Chair of the Board of Trustees

Voluntary Position, unsalaried, out-of-pocket expenses are reimbursed, 24 days a year



We are National Energy Action (NEA) – and our vision is to end fuel poverty; our work to improve and promote energy efficiency brings social, environmental, housing and employment benefits.  We believe everyone should be able to afford to keep their homes warm, safe and healthy however, low incomes, high energy bills and poor energy efficiency currently deny this to millions of households across the UK.  Never has this been more important than today.

We are looking for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees to help the charity move forward in the next phase of our strategic plan and its development.  You will be someone who will share our commitment to achieving warm,  safe and healthy homes for the most vulnerable in society and be able to lead the Board of Trustees in sharing their knowledge, skills and expertise to oversee the development and implementation of our strategic and business plans, as well as the charity’s finances and work programme direction, while also empowering the senior management team who take responsibility for the day-to-day running of the charity.  The Chair of the Board usually spends on average two days a month carrying out their duties.
