The VS6 network is seeking to appoint an Independent Chair (closing date: 5pm, Friday 11th March)
VS6 is the consortium of voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) infrastructure providers across the Liverpool City Region (LCR). It has developed to provide public and private sector partners working at the city region level a formal point of contact to engage with the VCSE sector, to debate, influence and shape policy and to consider how to develop a collective response. Members of VS6 have a collective reach, communication and feedback channels to over 8,000 VCSE organisations within LCR. We believe that VS6 has a vital role to play in ensuring that devolution delivers tangible benefits to local communities.
As part of our development, we are looking for an independent chair of the consortium. This is an exciting role, working in partnership with members to develop VS6 strategic objectives, providing leadership and representing the collective voice of VS6 when required and ensuring the efficient conduct of the consortium’s meetings. The successful candidate will have effective networking skills and ability to represent VS6, effective chairing skills and previous experience in the role of Chair and a good understanding of the changing political climate in which VCSE infrastructure support operates. Our new chair will have credibility with external partners and a good understanding of the role of VS6.
We expect the time commitment for the chair to be approximately one day per month. This is a voluntary position.
