Following an extensive governance review and the subsequent drafting of a 5 year strategic plan, Llangollen Railway is looking forward to appointing a new Chair to spearhead an exciting period of change and restructure, full of opportunities. The Chair will hold the Board and Management Team to account for the charity’s mission and vision, providing inclusive leadership to the Board of Trustees and ensuring that each Trustee fulfils their duties and responsibilities for the effective governance of the charity.
The Chair will also be expected to act as an ambassador and the public face of the charity alongside the General Manager, whilst ensuring the Board operates well as a team and working closely with the entire Management Team to achieve agreed objectives.
The Chair should be engaged with, excited by and have a demonstrable record of experience of organisational management and governance and inevitably share an enthusiasm for heritage railways, their vision, mission and values.
