/, MailChimp, News/Abigail Housing: Chair of the Board of Directors Vacancy

Abigail Housing is a registered charitable company, operating in Leeds and Bradford, dedicated to providing shelter for those fleeing persecution from abroad. Their mission is to provide temporary accommodation and related support to destitute asylum seekers and homeless refugees in West Yorkshire.

Abigail Housing’s Refugee Housing Project provides temporary accommodation in Leeds for new refugees to help bridge the gap between Home Office support and a successful application for social housing.

Abigail Housing’s Destitution Project provides temporary housing and support in Bradford to asylum seekers whose asylum application has been refused and who are destitute, but who are actively working towards submitting fresh asylum claims.

To support their mission, they are seeking a new chairperson to lead the board of  Trustees who has senior leadership experience in the housing and/or refugee environment, has the inspiration and gravitas to lead our charity strategically and can act for the organisation and build relationships with external stakeholders.

The successful candidate will commit a minimum of one day per month, which will include board meetings in alternate months.

Remuneration will not be offered, but payment of reasonable expenses is available.

How to apply

Interested candidates are asked to send a CV and an expression of interest, explaining why they would like to become the Chair of Abigail Housing and the qualities they would bring to the role to directors@abigailhousing.org.uk.
