Chair, the Universities’ Chaplaincy in Leeds Trust
An experienced and committed Chair is being sought for the Universities’ Chaplaincy in Leeds Trust.

The Chaplaincy Trust has responsibility for oversight, management, encouragement and support of an ecumenical chaplaincy team of full-time and part-time chaplains representing eight Christian denominations.

You would have empathy for Christian Chaplaincy and understanding of the Higher Education context. You would bring strategic awareness, leadership and team-building skills. The commitment is likely to be around 15-20 voluntary (part) days per annum.
