Chair of Trustees vacancy

Last updated on May 15, 2021




Charlton Toy Library is a Registered Charity run by a voluntary Management Committee made up of current and former Toy Library members.  We support the wellbeing, safety and development of children living in Greenwich providing families with a place to come and meet other parents, play with their children or get advice from our very experienced members of staff.  We provide free access to toys, books and safety equipment to support children’s needs whilst encouraging to recycle games rather than putting pressure on parents to buy new ones.


Through BBC Children in Need we receive funding to run an Outreach service which supports children and disadvantaged families across the whole Royal Borough of Greenwich.


The impact of Coronavirus is pushing the most vulnerable children in our country into a downward spiral of isolation. We are now seeking  to hire a  Chair  who  is  passionate, motivated,  with  excellent  leadership  skills,  who can commit the time to help drive the charity forward to its next growth stage and help increase its team.


The Chair’s role is to be part of the Board of Trustees, ensuring that it fulfils its governance responsibilities and the achievement of agreed objectives as laid down in approved strategies and plans. You will be a great communicator and able to develop strong working relationships with the Trustees, the employees and the members of the Charity.


This is an exciting opportunity to put your skills to use and to make a difference to the families in our community, whilst playing an important role in the future of Charlton Toy Library.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 11th June. Interviews will take place the week after.

This position is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
